Hey guys!
I hope you are having a better day than you did yesterday? 🙂
I just got back from Budapest and I’m so excited to share my experience with you.

You might want to watch this video first!

P.s- Did you know the country is called Budapest because separated by the chain bridge, half of the city is called “Buda” and the other half is called “Pest”.
I like to think Pest is for the cool people.
Haha, just kidding.us in budapest

Before I get into this, I’ll just like to mention that I’m going to give city breaks in Europe a break now.
I don’t know if this is just me but they all start to look the same.
So many similarities, it almost*  feels like I’ve been there before.
Is this just me?streets

So yeah, this time I didn’t do much of the “touristy” stuff.
I sort of focused on living as the locals do.
Ruin bars, local food, local drinks and oh my gosh, the thermal baths are to die for!fey thermal bath

Tina and I set off to Budapest for 5 days together and we had Aiman join us after 3 days.
I am so glad Tina was happy to take pictures and videos of me.
>> Good to know you’re adjusting to my diva side Tich! 😉 <<

Things to do in Budapest

The parliament building

This structure is beyond beautiful, it’s simply amazing, impeccable if I may add.
I read about it in this post and I definitely needed to experience this myself.

You spot the lights miles away and what’s so interesting is that it seems like a totally different building during the day (lights off)
All I did was stare for about 20mins, I had to take it all in.
If you do visit Budapest, do go inside and tell me  us all about it.parliament-building

The Chain Bridge

Remember the chain bridge that separates Buda and Pest,
Well, there are a number of bridges but the chain bridge is a landmark and also the prettiest.

Thermal Baths

Okay, okay, listen to me when I say this, do not go to Budapest without going to one of their Thermal baths!
This is undeniably the highlight of this trip.
Especially during the cold season (ouh la la!)

thermal bath
Yes please!

I’m seated here and I can still remember every sensation I felt having my first dip into the pool.
I had a “where have you been all my life moment”
No lie.

If you do go to one, Széchenyi Thermal Bath is the most popular one and also the one I went to.
It’s got 15 indoor pools, 3 outdoor pools, 10 saunas and steam rooms.
Talk about choices!

If you’ll rather have a quieter thermal bath experience, do go to Rudas Baths.

 

Ruin Bars

Apparently, ruin bars are also a thing in Budapest. It was a really interesting experience as well.
So interesting I went to Szimpla Kert twice!
You might also want to check out the nightlife at Brody House.
Good stuff!drinks

Travel Tip 

One of the best and easiest ways to discover the entire city is with the number 2  tram.
Its route goes through the city centre, so you get to see the parliament, the chain bridge and the Danube Promenade amongst other attractions.
You should probably stop at the central market hall as well!

Food

We ate so much in Budapest! It’s only right you have a grid view of the awesome food!


P.S: You do not want to leave Budapest without trying the “Chimn
ey”chimney

Before I round this up, I must talk about my hotel.
I spent way too much time in there not to.
Well if you’ve watched the Grand Budapest hotel movie, you’ll know why! And the best thing happened.
I got upgraded simply because it was the last available room (I call that favour! )
That’s the kind of favour I want in every aspect of my life.
Amen!fey-in-hotelroom

The Airbnb apartments are really affordable and nice
so you might want to save some costs on that.airbnb

I do hope you found this post useful and do check out a different version of Budapest in this post.

    We live in a small world, my former work place was just beside the roundabout before the chain bridge where you took the first picture. I remember coming out to the balcony to look at the bridge and I’ll see tourists taking pictures, I always wondered if by chance I’ll know someone who knows someone among those folks. Here you are! I found you…lol.

    And thermal baths are the absolutely best. Diving in after exploring in the cold is just… gold!
