    Actually you don't have to go first to Brussels to travel to Paris. Eurolines has a departure point to Paris also from Gent.
    But anyway the cheapest way to travel from Gent to Brussels is by train. There is a train every 30 minutes and it takes between 35 minutes and 40 minutes to arrive in Brussels.
    If you don't have a special discount, for a regular ticket you'll pay 7.50 EUR.

    Good to notice, in Belgium ALL trains going to Brussels stop ALWAYS at three Brussels stations: North, Central and South. As we are a three-languages country, depending in what part of the country you are, the destination will be announced as Brussel, Bruxelles or BrĂ¼ssel.
    Brussels being our bilingual capital, you will see out of the window of your train the station signs showing:
    Brussel Zuid/Bruselles Midi = Brussels South
    Brussel Centraal/Bruxelles Central = Brussels Central
    Brussel Noord/Bruxelles Nord = Brussels North
