There are more than 2000 chocolate shops in Belgium and even though the chocolate is the main attraction, the shops themselves are a feast for the eyes.

The most difficult decision is what not to purchase, and when the choices are finally made the chocolates are presented in gorgeously beribboned boxes and bags.
