it looks to me that you have to go via brussels.

although i have just looked for today and seen one that is direct on thalys and seems to take just one hour 19 minutes.

the website is www.b-rail.be/main/E/

use the timetable search tool in the left hand corner.

are you travelling from SHAPE ?

Actually, there is a thalys train that leaves Mons and goes to Paris Nord directly. It leaves at 8:30am and the return train leaves around 5 pm I think. www.thalys.com can show you the train times. That would be the most direct route.

A cheap alternative would be the Eurolines bus. They offer Bru-Paris return trips for less than 30 euros and the bus stops at mons train station. The bus is somewhat slower than the Thalys though.
