      We are traveling to Budapest for the two weeks of Dec.6th-14th. I see on those two weekends there are not performances of the Budapest Folkloric show or the Cymbalom Symphony except for Dec. 5th when we won"t be there yet. We would like to experience both and are greatly disappointed that there doesn't seem to be any other performances. Does anyone have any suggestions for us other than to change our dates of our visit?

      Thank you

    • Best method and time to convert currencies?

      by Howsthattourist Online Now Oct 10, 2015 at 1:52 AM

      For a tourist from the UK, what is the best approach for organising currency before you leave?

      A. Take HUF florint.

      B. Take Euros and spend or convert in Budapest if Euro is more attactive.

      C. Convert in UK now at around 400 HUF to UK £

      D. Convert in Budapest if rates are better.

      Using Turkey for experience, the conversion rate was always much better in Turkey than in UK, hence my question.
      Many thanks. Howsthattourist.

    • which side of the Danube to stay on while visiting Budapest

      by chantarelle54 Online Now Aug 31, 2015 at 7:53 AM

      We are planning a week trip to Budapest. Does it make sense to split our stay to the Buda side and the Pest side? Is there quite a distinction between the two sides that would be worth experiencing? Where would be the best district to stay in to fully experience the best Budapest has to offer. Would it make sense to rent a car for day trips out of the city? If so, to where should we go?

      Start with 'A' square, then proceed towards 'B' through 'x' street , next go up to 'C' hill to see the church 'D'. Eat at 'E' restraurant, and visit 'F' basiclia/museum/church whatsoever.

      Or if u have any map which is made for walking in Szentendre and Visegrad that would also help.

      Thanks minnie_rambler

      by minnie_rambler Online Now Aug 3, 2015 at 2:38 AM

      I have planned to visit Budapest for a few days this summer. 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). I can either go to the Danube Bend and visit 2 of the 3 small towns (Esztergom, Visegrad, and Szentendre) and back to Budapest. OR I could take a trip to the town of Eger OR to the town of Pecs and back to Budapest. OR I could take a day trip to Lake Balaton and back to Budapest.
      Please give me your valuable suggestions on which side trip do you prefer and why? If you chose the Danube Bend towns which two towns would you recommend?

      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?
