"A bit of everything" Shopping Malls & Streets Tip by Sjalen

Shopping Malls & Streets, Brussels: 51 reviews and 54 photos

Take a walk up or down Chaussée d'Ixelles for some good shopping. At the Porte de Namur end it starts with high street fashion and electronic chains and African shops (this is a very Congolese part of town) and gradually the shops become more individual until around and after Place Fernand Cocq (a good resting place) you find Tibetan hats, Chinese pots, Belgian cartoons and gift shops all the way down to Place Flagey.

What to buy: Almost anything you like.

What to pay: There are several bargain chains and "poundstretcher shops" around this district as well as more elegant labels.

Address: Chaussée d'Ixelles
Directions: Metro Porte de Narmur or Tram 81 to Place Flagey.
Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
