Preparing your trip to Budapest: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Chain Bridge, Budapest 1. Travelers are highly recommended to purchase a special discount card. It entitles you to have discounted rates on public transport, museums, amusement parks, zoos and other cultural facilities.
2. While exploring the city, tourists are recommended to use only public transport. The number of buses and trolleybuses is really big here, so you will have no problems with reaching any point of interest or attraction.
3. Those tourists, who expect to travel using taxi, should make sure their wallets are tight and full of US dollars. Many drivers accept payments exclusively in U.S. dollars. You also need to specify the price of your ride beforehand with the driver. Many unscrupulous drivers use the lack of awareness among tourists and increase their rates several times.
4. It is normal to leave tips in taxi and restaurants. The usual amount of a tip estimates 10 - 20% of the total sum.
5. Car Rental in Budapest is available only to those tourists, whose age is 21 years or more. While renting a car, you will be asked to present hotel guest card. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. If you want to devote much time to walk in the city, summer is definitely the best time for your trip. The period starting from June and till August is considered the hottest one.
7. The most popular souvenirs in Budapest are products made of crystal and lace. You will find these products at very reasonable prices in local shops and outlets.
Travelers will find many unusual hotels in Budapest. Hotels on water have become the calling card of the city. Boat Hotel Fortuna is one of these hotels. The boat hotel is docked not far … Open
8. Fines for traffic violations are rather harsh here. This concerns not only motorists, but also pedestrians. You should be especially careful when passing a road. A flashing green light here has the same meaning as our ordinary and familiar to many yellow signal.
9. When you purchase goods on open markets, you need to be prepared for the fact that many sellers increase prices deliberately, counting on uninformed tourists.
