Belgium is arguably most famous for its comfort food creations and on every street corner you will discover frothy beers, delicious chocolates and crispy waffles. Characterised by quaint cobbled streets and churches that ooze grace and grandeur, Belgium's towns and cities are something from a fairy-tale! From Belgian’s mouth-watering gastronomy to its innovative art scene, beautiful architecture and wide selection of shops - it is no surprise that it is a popular spot for the solo traveller.
The charismatic cities of Bruges, Brussels and Antwerp are popular city break destinations and are the perfect places for a solo traveller to explore. See the Grand Palace in the old town of Brussels, stroll down the canals and cobbled streets to the Belfry of Bruges or simply pop to the Christmas markets in Antwerp.
Did you know that Belgium shares a land border with four other countries: France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. As a result, they have three official languages spoken in Belgian: Flemish, Dutch and French, with a small proportion even speaking German! However, it is worth noting that all Belgians speak English extremely well.
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
