Summary

Discover Budapest from its most authentic side!
 
Unlike regular travel-guide authors, we’re locals and lovers of Budapest. We want to show YOU Budapest just like we show it to our best friends. Our city is our passion and so is our guidebook. It’s a genuine project of our hearts and so much more than just a quick “overview” of the Hungarian capital.
 
We’ve seen the changes Budapest has undergone from the front row. We’ve seen the tourist waves getting bigger and bigger with each year, “hotspots” rise and fall, the mindset of the locals changing and Budapest constantly opening up, becoming this booming, vibrant and colourful city it is today. Today, Budapest is often mischaracterized as a mere party city with only cheap booze. Most visitors never make it past that image because they get caught up in the tourist bubble and miss out on so many more things the city has to offer.
 
Here we share all of our knowledge about what Budapest truly has to offer – it’s most authentic spots and experiences. This guidebook will help you peel back the multiple layers of Budapest.
 
It’s written for conscious travellers and explorers. For those who are looking for more than just a glimpse at the main tourist attractions.
 
For those who want to not only see, but also feel the city and experience how it lives, plays, works, eats, drinks and functions.
 
It features countless little gems for you to discover while strolling the city streets – be it a hidden courtyard, a secret bar, a colourful garden, an offbeat flea market, or a stunning piece of street art.
 
We’ve also included day trips and walking routes for perfect days full of new discoveries and created a directory and a map for those moments in which you just need quick info. Unlike usual tourist guides, this book will encourage you to experience Budapest as if you’d lived here for years.
 
It's a declaration of unconditional love for a city that is constantly evolving, has a thousand faces and never fails to delight and entertain.

    Everything you need for a successful and easy Australian vacation—in one concise and intelligent guide. The Australian dollar has recently plunged in value against the U.S. dollar making Australia far more accessible than it has been in years. To keep up with the changes the new currency situation has brought about, we’ve turned once again to Lee Mylne. Based in Brisbane (the third most populous city in Australia), Mylne has been an Australian travel journalist for nearly all her working life. She has crisscrossed every state and territory of Australia by every means of transport, and she is a life member and past president of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.  This guide is updated each year, concisely written (so it’s easy to carry) and printed in large, easy-to-read type  
    16 pages of vibrant photographs, plus dozens of photographs throughout the book  
    Opinionated reviews of Australia’s best attractions, hotels, restaurants, nightlife venues and shops—everything you need to know, nothing you don’t  
    Detailed local maps marked with hotels, restaurants, and attractions, plus a map of Sydney’s ferry system  
    Expert tips and recommendations for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania, and the Red Centre including Uluru  
    Reviews with exact pricing, so there’s never any guessing, using the Frommer’s star rating system  
    Suggested itineraries, including for families and for one-week visits  
    Smart advice on how to scuba dive, avoiding dangerous animals, dodging crowds, renting a car, money-saving packages, and more  
    A rich section on the history of Australia, including detailed context on Aboriginal issues and tips on cultural sensitivity  
    A handy pull-out, indexed map of Australia ideal for in-depth trip planning  
    There’s a reason that Frommer’s has been the most trusted name in travel for more than sixty years. Arthur Frommer created the best-selling guide series in 1957 to help American servicemen fulfill their dreams of travel in Europe, and since then, we have published thousands of titles became a household name helping millions upon millions of people realize their own dreams of seeing our planet. Travel is easy with Frommer’s.
