Budapest is great
Budapest is cheap, easy to get around and has many things to do and see. If you like good food, culture or paryting there is something for you in Budapest. For those who want to shop there are big shopping mall - West End, Arena Plaza, Corvin Plaza and Mamut to name a few and an Ikea store. The food is cheap and very good, and you can find wide variety of it (Hungarian, Chinese, Arabic, Turkish etc) and if you like fast food there is a McDonalds and Burger King at almost every corner.
Insider Tip:When you arrive buy a 24,48 or 72 hour pass for public transport. Budapest has an efficient public transport and by using metro, tram or bus you can get anywhere in 10 to 15 min. Passes are cheap and worth it. If you arrive by train at Keleti station or by bus at Nepliget station do not change a lot of money at the station because the rate is very bad compared to rates across the city. Try to change your money at City change exchange company that has only 0.3% comission rate.
