Brits Handed Tips for Holiday Breaks In Belgium16.06.2009
There are many customs Brits must comply to ensure that they do not fall within the scope of the locals while on holiday in Belgium, according to a source.
Jane Lasky, writing for examiner.com, compiled a list of the do's and don'ts for those heading on the ferry to Belgium.
One faux-pas to avoid is asking for the bill in a restaurant, as the writer advises that you should instead raise your hand and make eye contact with a member of staff instead.
Tourists should also ensure that they refrain from being loud, standing with their hands in their pockets and pointing at others, as these are all frowned upon.
Meanwhile, the 15 percent service charge is usually added to food and beverage bills in Belgium and this should be supplemented by a small tip, the website suggests.
There are also rules for those heading to the country on business, such as ensuring that an appointment is booked and wearing a dark suit.
If you can keep all these things, then a good time in Belgium is sure to follow, especially if you visit attractions such as Antwerp Zoo and the Brewery Museum.
