So you're about to head to Belgium for a few days of meetings. But you realize: you have no idea what Belgium is like.

Sure, you know where you're staying. Maybe you've got a guidebook that describes places to visit if you manage to scrape together a few hours of sightseeing. But what's Belgium really like for doing business?

More practically:

- How should you greet your business partners?

- If you're invited to someone's house, what sort of gift should you bring?

- If you receive a gift, should you open it right away in front of the gift-giver?

- Are there any special considerations for female travelers?

- Perhaps most importantly: if you order the flamische aux chicons, what on Earth is that going to look like?

Belgium: Business Traveler's Passport is designed specifically for businesspeople. It contains a couple hundred pages of information on Belgium, focusing on areas of particular concern to the business traveler. While it does contain a small amount of information on hotels and sightseeing opportunities, these sections are intentionally lightthis is not a travel guide! Seriously!

Instead, it has entire sections of information on:

* Belgium Basics: A brief history of Belgium, with some background and historical highlights.

* Country Facts: Demographics and other statistical data, with an offline map of the country.

* Doing Business: Greetings & courtesies, meeting protocol, business attire, business entertaining, etc.

* Women: As travelers, are there any special considerations in Belgium? As a businesswoman, are any extra measures needed? How are belgian women treated in their own country?

* Money: What does the money look like? How much should different service people be tipped...if at all?

* Travel: Visa info, departure formalities, electrical system, etc.

* Safety: Emergency numbers, notes on street crime, hospital locations, health & medical care.

* Points of Interest: A few interesting museums and cultural sites, in case there's time after the meetings.

* City View: Background on Antwerp and Brussels, with a handful of hotel descriptions.

* Telephone System: The subtleties of dialing to & from Belgium. There's even a section on how to use pay phones in Belgium (without needing to read Flemish).

* Life Cycle: From birth to marriage to old age, what's life like?

* Gift Giving: The subtleties of giving personal or business gifts.

* Holidays and Festivals: Solid background on the popular holidays and festivals.

* Religion: Info on Belgium's religious climate.

* Superstitions and Folklore: Common superstitions, along with belgian stereotypes.

* Food and Recipes: Descriptions of common belgian foods, along with recipes for appetizers, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts, including tomates aux crevettes, moules, crème de crevettes, salade du pêcheur, vlaamse stoofkarbonaden, frites, and of course...belgian waffles.

* Terms Dictionary: Over 100 words & phrases translated into Flemish.

* Embassies: Embassy locations and contact info for dozens of countries.

All content is 100% available offline without a network connection. However, street addresses are linked to the Maps app, URLs open up in Safari, and phone numbers & email addresses bring up the appropriate helper apps.
