If you hate Belgium, why do you live here?

Ever been to Antwerp, my friend?

Why don't we see you in the Belgian section of this forum?

Sorry mate, but Belgium has got dozens of nice cities with lots of things to do and to see.
All of this cities are famous for the architecture. Brussels is the biggest, most metropolitan and cosmopolitan city in the Benelux.
Antwerpen is a great harbour city an is the party- and clubbingcapital. Leuven, where you live is a lively student-town with big history and parties almost every day.
And then I didn't mention Ghent, Bruges, Ostend, Ypres, Liege, Namur, Hasselt, Tournai, etc... yet.
There are concerts and parties anywhere, everywhere, year around.
In summer, there are hundreds of music festivals all over the country. Lot's of them with free entrance.
Leuven is the Beer capital of the world and in Belgium there are more beers than anywhere in the world.
Lonely Planet, National Geographic and Tripadvisor are fond of some of the Belgian cities .
Jump on one of our many and cheap trains and explore the country!

Of course we don't have waterfalls or nature parcs as in Canada and the US. That is true. But if you like amusment parcs and casino's like in the Niagara falls region, you can allways visit Walibi or Disneyland Paris, which are nearby.

If you are bored in Belgium, than it's your own fault or there is something wrong with you. Everybody is welcome in our multicultural country, with or without veil.

But anyone who doesn't like our little country, is allways free to move...

I'm hoping this doesn't get turned into a thread arguing about Belgium. Let's get back to the photos of Niagara Falls!

Great pictures.

I went to Niagara Falls for the first time in over 5 years in August. Stayed on the American side because some of my friends with me were international and did not have Canadian visas. As we all know, that side isn't as good because of the worse views, and the fact that NFNY is nowhere near as nice as NFON. But you could walk to either Niagara Falls on the Rainbow Bridge for 50 cents if you want.

Love the falls, but unfortunately, most of the stuff there, including the food, is a ripoff. I can't imagine how worse the more touristy Canadian side is when it comes to that. Still, it's worth a visit.

I plan on going back in January, I hear the Falls are surreal in the winter.

The American side is nice adjacent to the American Falls, and along the rapids. Anything in the actual city is indeed shit, though.
