Budapest is renowned for super cheap alcohol prices, specifically beer; if you want to embrace this then definitely avoid the overpriced Irish pubs
Try Goulash in a local restaurant, it sounds quite crazy but it tastes exactly like beef stew mixed with a roast dinner
Make sure you book your Danube boat tour for the evening as the parliament (photo on the left) is an amazing view to see lit up
Ghost/Legends tours are an essential when visiting Budapest as you will learn the insane history of the original two areas: Buda and Pest
Don't throw change in the 'wishing wells' in the ground, they actually lead to a network of tunnels where the old royalty's mistress used to hide, run home and often die in - not much luck there
Good to know
The currency in Budapest, Hungary is Hungarian Forints.
Budapest is one of the cheapest European city I have ever visited, do not stress majorly over spending money.
The best time to visit, in my opinion, is the Winter. This is because of the amazing mulled wine poured straight from barrels, the snow and the Christmas lights. However there is a festival called Sziget in August every year which looks incredible, so a Summer trip may be just as great.
In the Széchenyi Spa you can pay a deposit and fee for a towel and wet-shoes, however you do have to give them back therefore if you bring your own with you you'll save money.
The easiest way to get to-from the airport is the train, it costs around 1-3 euros and only takes 30 minutes.
