Voice of Travelers to Hungary

Amazing getaway in Hungary

I booked my air ticket from London to Budapest, the capital of Hungary. The ticket was cheap, and the distance was not too long. I've discovered that Hungary is one of the most exciting countries in Europe. Hungary offers many things to explore from historical ruins to a modern city. As soon as we arrived we were exploring great restaurants, cafes, and hotels. Our hotel was in Budapest, and the staff there spoke great English and were so helpful. The food was amazing, especially the wine and beer! I highly recommend going to pubs to meet some locals as they are so friendly. I can't wait to book another air ticket to Hungary!

Lovely Hungarian Morning

My plan was to travel to Budapest by ship from Vienna. But my friends suggested to use a train as it is a cheaper ticket, so I ended up buying a train ticket instead. The train got to Hungary in the morning, and I was shocked by the mountain views and the fresh air. Hungary is different from any other European country. The food there was delicious, and the local markets had so many places to eat, buy gifts and drink beer.

Charming City Life in Hungary

I had the opportunity to visit Hungary on a business trip, and it was an unforgettable city! Since my air ticket was paid for by my company, I had a lot of spare cash for other activities. After getting to my hotel, I spent some time exploring the city center. I noticed that Hungary takes pride in their well-developed transportation network which includes the metro, bus, and railway. The bus ticket is cheaper than the metro ticket and the railway ticket! I also loved the food at my hotel which was always fresh and so tasty! I really hope to go back to Hungary for my next break.
