Hey good people,
Few questions as I'm putting together a trip to budapest.
#1) what is the best way to get from airport to hotel? We are not planning to rent a car.
#2) Because we will be using transportation, how much should we budget for this considering a 6 day stay? I have heard of the "budapest pass" which gives free access to public transportation for 48-72 hours. Is this a good option? Do most people travel via the metro and how much is it usually? I've also read about making sure you "punch in." What is that about?
#3) How much money should we have with us at any time? If we don't have enough, are we able to access it through an ATM? if so, how much is the charge? Should we exchange money once we get there? I've read about the pick-pocketing. Should we purchase those wallets that you can wear under your clothing?
#4) Is it easy to communicate with people in english?
#5) when booking tours and activites, what is the best site to use? what are some recommended tours? I have been looking at city tours, parliament tours, wine and food tours, danube dinner and cruise, etc. Any tips?
#6) Which bathes are the best to visit? Preferrably indoors and coed.
Ok, thats enough for now....thanks for any help you can give!!!
