Need help on transportation from Paris to Bruges

Hi,
My name is Ratiphan, It is my first time on this forum. I'd plan for a long solo Europe trip in March this year start from Spain and end in Italy, most of my trip had been arranged but really need help on Bruges. I will visit Bruges from Paris in April and try to find other option to get there, Thalys train timetable wasn't suit me because it has only one train in the evening so I will loose the the whole day that I suppose to spend in Bruges . Is anyone can help?

The only other thing I know of is a guided trip with Parisvision or Cityrama.

You can get the Thalys to Brussels and get a local train from there to Brugge.
There are plenty of Thalys trains during the day and regular trains to Brugge.

I'm taking the Eurostar from Paris to Brussels and then changing. Not sure how that compares to the Thalys. My understanding is that connecting trains in Belgium are included in the cost of the Eurostar.

Ditto what hetismij said. What you saw is that there is only one "DIRECT" train from Paris to Bruges daily, which departs in the evening. The DIRECT train involves no changes.

However, you can easily take ANY Thalys train from Paris to Brussels, then change for the local train to Bruges.

Thank you all for very good advice, I will try to check both Eurostar and Thalys to Brussels and change to local train then.

You can get to Bruges via either Lille or Brussels (from Paris).

Finally I'd booked Thalys train from Paris to Brussels, it very cheap cost only 50 Euro for return trip the catch only can't change or refund. I also checked local train from Brussels to Bruges it have many train to choose from.

your information are very helpful. Thanks again.
