Gypsy Jetsetter: Antwerp – City Of Fashion And Diamonds

Antwerp has long been known as a diamond hub, and is one of the largest in the world with $16billion in polished diamonds passing through here each year. It is also known for the Antwerp Six, the fashion designers who’ve made a name for themselves in this city, including Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries van Noten, Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs, and Marina Yee (Source: Wikipedia).

If you happen to be in this trendy port city in the summer, make sure you stop by Strantwerpen, a beach bar on the water where people go to see and be seen or just relax and enjoy some drinks on beds in the sand. It has a bit of an Ibiza feel to it, but a bit calmer of course.

If you’re looking for typical Belgian cuisine, indulge in a steak tartar with salad and fries at Vieux Depot in Brasschaat (Oude baan 11). You can ask to prepare it yourself or they can prepare it for you (meaning adding pickles, egg yolk, mustard and other tasty ingredients).
