Tell a Belgian you’re moving to Belgium and they’re likely to ask ‘which one?’. Belgium comes in three distinct varieties: Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels. These three regions are pretty much autonomous in that they speak different languages, and favour different gastronomic experiences. Whichever of the three regions you choose, however, this richly diverse country is a popular expat destination due to its proximity to the UK, its international culture, and its reputation for offering a great quality of life to its citizens.
