"Canoeing in Gent on a July 21st..." Top 5 Page for this destination Gent Favorite Tip by Norali

Gent General: 116 reviews and 147 photos

  Fun? Yes, seemingly fun!
by Norali

Favorite thing: I would have said the same thing as in previous tip but in fact, no.

For one reason, I may find it ridiculous. Yet, the guy who was canoeing in the Lys river, at this very crowded spot, was smiling. Seemingly enjoying a good time in his canoe.

Good for him!

Who am i to judge anyway?

Fondest memory: That day, I was with a notorious canoe-man on VT, I noticed he just looked at the "tools" but I guess he didn't envy the guy who was canoeing at that time and very precise area.

On the pic, the part of the quays buildings... Korenlei and Graslei used to be spots for youngs who like to gather there with music, sitting, have some drinks on terraces. Here, it was too crowded to savour the tranquillity of the city... that image of the everyday Ghent will come later. So far, this page is dedicated to the 21st July in this beautiful city.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
