An excellent tram ride from Knokke in the North to De Panne in the South undertaken in 2011 it cost 5 euros to go from one to the other, be warned you will need a toilet stop somewhere en route as it takes 3 hours to do

Any visit to Belgium's coast should include a ride on the coastal tram. The longest tram route in the world. It links every town on the coast and provides a reliable transport link between all the attractions in this part of West Flanders. And cheap!! A €5 ticket gives unlimited travel for a day (and is good for all of... More

Nice ride to cover the coast of Belgium, not much to see in the border towns but nice small towns to visit, depending where you staying.

The bus and tram lines use the same tickets and both means of transportation work very well. We liked the fact that the Tram runs all along the beach.
