After Oktoberfest our group wanted to take a train straight to Croatia, but this was easier said than done. We were informed at the Munchen Hopbahnhof that there were no trains available to Croatia, but there was an overnight train to Budapest. So, after weighing up our options for about 30 seconds we were on the next train to Budapest.

STAY: Domino Hostel is clean, secure, and cheap.

WARING: If you are walking the streets of Budapest be wary if you get approached by women that want you to buy them a drink because it is most likely a scam that the local mob runs to extort cash from tourists.

DO: Spend a day walking the streets of the city. There is a small mountain that over looks the entire city just across the Danube from the Parliament House that offers great views.
