I have kept 2 full days for the Budapest city explore (Castle district, Pest area, Take a hot bath , Do some shopping etc.) and want to do day trips from Budapest (for this day trips again I have 4 full days).

      When shopping for gifts can one bargain? Are the prices marked on the items or do you have to ask? Also in looking at a map of the area where one would get off the Tram #2 to get to the market it appears to be a large area around the bridge that is under construction, it that still the case? It seems the tram stop is right in the middle of all this construction.

      In taking the metro to this place is it easy to find the castle once you emerge from the metro. in looking at the map it seems you emerged in a park and the castle is some distance away so I wonder are there signs to lead you to the castle? Can it be seen when you emerge from the Metro? Is there a cafe there where one can rest a bit and get a drink and snack?

      If I buy the day pass is it good from the moment I purchase it for 24 hours? In other words is it validated the moment I buy it? I assume it will be good on all metro and tram lines? If I buy a single ticket on the metro can I change lines if my destination requires that? I read somewhere that there are metro tickets that only allow so many stops, how do I ensure that I get the right metro ticket that will allow me to use more than one line to get to my destination?

We have interests from art/architecture/landscape/ to craft beer to military history (that is definitely my husband!). We've never been to the area and will only be there for 3 days. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

      More insight on our likes....we are not the club going types anymore (late 30's/early 40's, been there and too old for that. LOL) We do enjoy nice meals, pubs, and seeing unusual and beautiful scenery.

      Travel tips for Budapest-July 2016

      Budapest Jul 4, 2015 at 6:18 AM

      Hello!

      My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Budapest, Hungary in July 2016 to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. I am obviously starting to plan as early as possible and am looking for any tips! We are both travelling from Canada (Ontario). I speak English and French and my boyfriend speaks English and Hungarian (his family came here from Yugoslavia in the early 90s and he grew up speaking Hungarian in his home). We are planning to go for at least a week--possibly 8 or 9 nights.

      1. Did anyone here use a travel website to book? If yes, what site would you recommend (Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz, etc)? If not, how did you book?

      2. Any recommendations for airlines? Or ones to avoid?

      3. Any recommendations for hotels? Or ones to avoid?

      4. Is Budapest a walkable city? I don't mind taking the metro but my boyfriend and I prefer walking (I feel you get to see more and love the exercise)!

      5. Do you have any tips regarding behaviour and local customs? For example, when I was in Paris it was seen as polite to always say hello and goodbye when entering any store or establishment, even if you were not planning to purchase anything.

      6. What are your recommendations for must-see spots?

      7. What about food/restaurant recommendations?

      8. What are the prices like there? As far as I know, Hungary is not on the Euro.

      9. Finally, just any other general tips and information would be much appreciated!

      I've never traveled to a country in which I don't speak the language/don't have any family so I am feeling a little lost and would greatly appreciate any help you could provide.

      Thank you all very much!

      Hello - My son and his girlfriend are traveling to Budapest to get acquainted with the area prior to him beginning a fall course of study at Budapest's Corvinus University. They are planning on visiting at the end of August, beginning of September. I was wondering what area would be best suited for a young couple traveling independently for the first time to stay. They are considering renting an apartment through a HomeAway or Vacation Rental By Owner, or stay in a hostel, as they are on a limited budget. Does anyone have any recommendations? Once school begins in September, my son will stay in the school's dorm accommodation.
