A stroll along and across the Danube should not be missed!
Although friendly, a lot of locals don't speak English - get ready to talk with your hands and feet
To follow this exact itinerary, you'd be arriving in the evening and spending the two following full days in Budapest. It doesn't have to be a weekend - all my recommendations are open all week! Keep in mind that Budapest is huge and there is lots to do, so my 2 day itinerary only gives you the highlights. You can easily spend a few more days there without getting bored. You might be glad to hear that Budapest is not super touristy, so unless you go during Sziget Festival (early August), you’ll be able to mingle with locals even in the centre. In my opinion, the spring months are the best time to visit as it’s not too hot yet (it does get super hot come July) and there are pretty cherry blossom trees in some parts of the city. The trip to Szentendre can be done as a daytrip from Budapest or you can spend a night there to escape the city.
Q & A
How was the food?
Garden Studio and ZenEtterem are veggie paradise!
What tips would you give a friend?
There's a huge student discount for public transport!
Budapest will be very hot in the summer - make sure to pack light clothing and sun cream
If you get a tram ticket at a machine, don't forget to validate it once you get on. Stick it into one of the small "thingies" on the handles and press the button - they're easily missed.
Budapest is bustling any night of the week, you don't need to wait for the weekend to grab a drink and have a boogie!
Make sure to book Shantee House in advance, they fill up. None of the other things on my itinerary require a booking.
