Hello, Hope you can help me cause I really need it! :) Next week I will be travelling to Belgium and I need to arrive from Gent to Evergem.

Hi all, I'm travelling to Gent by Eurostar from london in a couple of weeks and have 2 questions regarding my journey: 1) I understand I have to change trains at Brussels (I think) - is it then obvious which platform to go to for the Gent Train? 2) I am staying at a hotel on Waaistraat. I see it is quite a long walk from the station so was thinking of getting a taxi (there are 4 of us) however, someone has suggested we could take the tram - is this much cheaper, and how will i know which one to get? Any tips would be much appreciated - thanks! :)

Hi, we are planning to go to Brugge in May, and then to go to Gent. I looked up a train schedule, and it shows that from Brugge to Gent it takes only 20-25 minutes. Is it really so? Could anyone please confirm that? If it's true, then we may stay in Brugge all this time and just have day trips to Gent (accomodation in Brugge is much cheaper)? What would you say? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
We were thinking of holidaying in Gent over Christmas but were wondering if there would be any restaurants open on Christmas Eve,Day and Boxing Day?
Hi everyone! I'm going to stay in G(h)ent with 10 colleagues, for a week and a half in March. We will fly on Brussels Airlines and arrive at the international brussels airport and then we should catch a train, right? (from what I've read I think it's the best option...). I have some questions that I wanted to ask you: 1- the train station is "inside" or near the airport? 2- is this train direct to ghent? or does it have any stop or line changes? To return home we will catch the Ryanair flight in charleroi airport... Questions: 3- what is the best way to get to Charleroi from Gent? (train, bus?) 4- how long does the train/bus takes, to get from G(h)ent to Charleroi? (the flight is at 16h45) Thanks in advance ;)

Hello everyone :) I might be travelling to Belgium in mid November (one week trip). Decided to visit Bruges, Antwerpen, Brussels and, of course, Gent. Also decided to stay most of the nights in Gent and travel by train to other, above mentioned places (except Brussels, will move there for 2 last nights). Therefore would like to stay in a B&B near the railway station. At the same time, I am bit afraid whether the area is safe? I consider the following guesthouses: Chambre Eau - Lindenlei 17; Verlaet- Ijzerlaan 11; Laurent Delvaux -Laurent Delvauxstraat 15; Four Corners - Abdisstraat 8. Any suggestions? Will appreciate any help....
