Tips for staying in Budapest for 3 days on the budget

Budapest is a beautiful European city and a great getaway if you want a holiday on the budget. The idea of going there came about because my dad was visiting me in the UK for a few weeks and I thought we should go on a little adventure together. We decided on Budapest as one of the destinations when I saw a a pretty good deal of £45 per person for a return ticket on skyscanner

So here are my tips for having an enjoyable and relaxing getaway:

1. Go sightseeing and enjoy the walk around the city
