As we made our way to Manneken Pis, we passed by the vibrant Place de Brouckère, a bustling square in the heart of Brussels. The area was teeming with restaurants, cafes, pharmacies, dental clinics and even fast food chains too.

After visiting and taking some photos around the Manneken Piss, we had take a walk at the rows of shops nearby. There were shops selling creatives donuts and chocolate factory that sells different types of chocolate designs and cookies. Besides the chocolate factory, there were a shop that sells Brussels chocolates. After talking the chocolate, I really can’t help my self from buying some of it back home.

We had also visited on of the famous chocolate shops there named Mary Chocolatier, a Belgian Royal Warrant Holder since 1942 which has been a beloved chocolate shops since 1919 in Brussels. We brought some of the chocolates to try out ourself there too. But I think me and my mum personally likes the first shops chocolates more. Most probably it’s sweeter.

Our journey didn’t stop there; we explored the area and found even more chocolate shops there too and also waffles and souvenirs shops selling almost the same souvenirs across all shops in Brussels.

So this wraps up our amazing day of exploration, indulgence, and discovery in the heart of Brussels. Manneken Pis and the surrounding area have so much to offer, from history and culture to delightful treats
