I moved to the US from Hungary after graduating from the university. Best decision of my life. I still visit family there every summer but feel more like a tourist. The only thing I miss is the architecture and the walkability of the cities. Living there is not that great.

Gabriel Traveler (2 months ago)
I'm not sure what you're referring to in the video (show the time stamp for example 5:00 to indicate the time), but exchange rates vary. As of today 1 USD = 282 HUF, so yes, 150 HUF is about 50 cents USD.

Hey Gabriel, I am visiting Budapest in April and I was wondering what is the best way to get the local currency, I was just planning to withdraw some money from my debit card in an ATM, what do you think? I've done that in some other places and have not had a problem.
Carlos Carazo (7 months ago)
Awesome! That's what I needed to know, great video BTW, extremely helpful!
Gabriel Traveler (8 months ago)
Yes, using your debit card at an ATM is the best way. Just make sure to contact your bank and inform them of the countries you are going to because otherwise your card might not work. And also make sure you have some cash on you in a major currency such as a few hundred US dollars, euros, British pounds, etc. in case you have any problems withdrawing money and as emergency cash.

Thank you for the vid, it was useful. When my friends come from America, I will have to tell them not to wear sleeveless tops outside. Women can do it, but men should not. It is considered as male underwear in Hungary, so the boys should put on something with sleeves. Thank you, I haven't thought of it yet.

I lived there for four years, in Szeged and Debrecen, these two cities are even cheaper than Budapest. I miss Hungary, I'm currently in Ireland and it's crazy expensive over here.
Bernd Klüver (9 months ago)
Dear Gabriel. Budapest is definitely not cheap. If you come as a visitor from the US with a salary of 4000$ it might be cheap. If you live there and you only earn 800$ for the same job the world looks different. Am i right ?
TheFuzzy Beast (11 days ago)
+Gøran Greggor The problem is that nowdays the minimum wage is around 491$, yet a MEDIUM category apartment's rent starts around 30 000Ft=105$ + overheads which is (if you want to live the fullest) costs another 30 000 and i still did not count bail that you need to pay in the very first time you move in (only for the first month, fortunately) to be prepared if the owner's stuff gets ruined, ect. so they pay the reparation from that(lso a Lot of trickings are here or people can't pay their bills after a while so the bail will cover you for a few more months), soo yeaah that can be even around double the amount of what you need to pay for the rent and overheads..often 120 000Ft or more, soo you start up with around 180 000Ft minus=632$ oh wait, oop's i died So you need to get a low category apartment or just rent a room aand yeh, this was a Higher category of "minimum wage"..and there people who get 110 000Ft/month or even lower, ect.

+Peter Gagnon 25% in Croatia. But what's the income tax?

+Gøran Greggor The VAT in Humgary is 27% , one of the highest in Europe.
Gøran Greggor (4 months ago)
Dorka Gutbrod That's weird, considering that the average salary in Croatia is around 900€ I thought you had higher salaries and a higher living standard for sure. Now considering that your prices really are quite a bit cheaper (lower taxes I guess), the living standard seems to be about the same.

We rented a nice apartment with A/C during July 2016 for 50 USD a night, It was just a few blocks from the Elizabeth bridge. Bought some nice pastries at the Grand Market. I think they were about a dollar each. Beautiful city and so affordable. Was only there a few days as we were booked on a Danube cruise to Passau, Germany. I really wish we had spent more time in Budapest. Will definitely be going back.

Why did you not cover the more important questions like 1. how easy is it to rail the local birds.2 how much is weed and whats the quality like. 3 . is it illegal to stomp on a gypsies head if they try and engage you in conversation. 4 .how do you say big mac in hungarian and 5. do you have to shit in a hole in the public toilets?
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
Great questions. Sounds like you need to go to Budapest and make a video. I'm sure the research would be fun (except stomping on someone's head, don't do that).

many quaint villages and fantastic scenery, the seat of many  kings is very close and you can easily visit both  in one day-trip from throughout the year. The peak tourist months however July-Budapest on the Danube amazing.Baseball. Al Hrabosky, known as the mad hungarian relief pitcher. didnt know that

How are Hungarians toward foreign students? I'm planning to study there. Lovely country...
Zita Csarnai (11 months ago)
AmirAli Tn In the bigger cities they are usually friendly with them, in little cities too but fewer people understand them. For example, in Budapest, where lot of people live, more people speak english, almost in every shop, every restaurant, especially younger generations. While in my town, close to the Romanian border, almost only us, the teenagers speak English 'cause our parents in school had to learn Russian, and they don't feel like learning English because they don't see the point of it. So for foreign students I'd recommend bigger cities because of the easier communication but I've seen foreign students in my school as well and everyone was super friendly with them, however older people couldn't really speak with them :)

What a culinary imbecile! This guy is a perfect example of why Americans get such a bad rep when they travel beyond their own navels: This dude went all the way to Budapest-- one of THE foodie capitals of the world-- for a gyro, smoothie, granola, oats, a beer that he can't be bothered to find out where it's produced, and turkey.

So did you learn something about how expensive Budapest is?
