if I have to organize a trip for myself Gent->Paris->Brussels airport
what kind of transportation you can advice me to use and do you have
any idea what could be the cheapest solution ?
btw : I found eurolines has a promo fare brussels-paris-brussels for 22EUR,
but I have to start at brussels nord bus station, any idea how to get there from gent and then when I'm back to the airport ?
any help will be greatly appreciated
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 Brüssel.
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
