Chillin' in Budapest

I read that Budapest has a number of large modern shopping malls so since it was so close to my hostel and was attached to the nearest subway, I decided to check out the West End City Center. It was a very large mall and so were the prices.  Back at the hostel, the Americans mentioned that prices were amazingly cheap in Budapest.  Well, I don't know about that.  Compared to prices back in Canada, the mall's prices were roughly equivalent to those found in Canada but as you hit the touristy areas of town, prices skyrocketed to three or four times the prices found in Canada. Food at grocery stores was also pretty much the same as those found in Canada so I never did find those amazing deals and unfortunately, did not have a chance to ask the Americans as they were around the next night.

When it comes to food, there is no better place to go in Budapest than the Központi Vásárcsarnok (Central Market).  From fresh fruits and vegetables to tender meats to dried mushrooms and peppers to prepared foods, this place has it all and it's huge!

And what would be a visit to Budapest without visiting one of its renowned thermal baths like the Széchenyi Baths...

With a multitude of pools to choose from, inside and out, with a variety of temperatures from frigid cold to super hot and the dry and steam saunas to the "river current" whirlpool, you can easily spend an entire day here.
