What a beautiful city
I recently travelled to Budapest for a hen weekend. It was amazing. The weather was beautiful, the city was stunning. I can’t wait to go back!
With the time of year it was, there were a few hens/stags going on, but no trouble. Everyone was super happy!
We had a great time, busy busy with our little schedule but it was so much fun. I couldn’t keep up with the drinkers though. *sorry, not sorry* I do like a cup of tea in bed and i’m not cut out for hangovers anymore. Hehe.
Here’s a low down of what I got up to…
These apartments were in the centre of the city and walkable from many attractions.
What did we do?
Really cool bar with amazing views over the city. We sat for hours drinking cocktails and enjoying the views. They also serve food, which was a) really cheap and b) really frickin’ good!
Oh my. This was so much fun. In teams we were separated into different rooms and we basically had to work together and use all of our brain power to get solve puzzles/riddles to escape. We got ‘The Bank Job’ was was super hard, we almost made it out but not quite!
River Cruise – Danube
This was a great way to see the two side of the city, Buda and Pest. Buda, which is on the West, is more hilly and has a lesser population. Pest, on the East side is flatter and much busier. Pest is most likely the side you will stay. Whilst cruising the river, an array of pretty buildings can be seen and it was great for photo opps.
River cruises are really cheap and don’t need to be booked in advance, you can walk down to the river and pick one up from any vendor. They work out to be about £3.
This is a pretty cool place to chill. There are various pools to choose, inside and out. The spa offers treatments and massages, should you like one. Mine was a bit strange but the other girls seemed to enjoy theirs! It’s in the city and can be reached by taxi.
It became apparent, that I am a lightweight and can’t keep up with the seasoned drinkers! There were some cool bars and venues around the city, I experienced a couple of them but because I like my bed and turn into an 80 year old pensioner when on holiday, I didn’t get to experience all of them! *hanging my head in shame*
Shopping is actually pretty awesome, although I wouldn’t intentionally travel to Budapest to shop. There were many familiar names such as Hugo Boss, MAC, H&M and so on. Alongside the big names, were many quirky little in-betweeners and gift shops.
Personally, I loved Budapest. I certainly didn’t experience the whole city so it’s back on the go-to list to finish off!
