CLICK HERE FOR PREVIOUS POST

The next day.... (16 Oct 2017)

We started the day early. After breakfast at the kitchen, kmi terus kluar. Kitchen Maverick sangat cntik dan bersih. Everything was there. Similar to other hostels, lps mkn jngn lupa kemas ya n if u want to put yr food in the fridge, make sure u label yr food. Standardla kan... mana2 hostel.


Cntikkan kitchen? kat meja tu ler kami lepak dan makan. Ada 3 meja
kat kitchen tu.
Kmi menapak ke jetty. Not very far, about 10 minutes walk.  Along the way, we stopped at a few spots to snap photos. The day was so beautiful. The sun was shining brightly but the weather was so nice. I wish we could hve this weather in KL 😀.

Elizabeth Bridge.

We went through this passage

Budapest, like other European cities, has a lot of statues.

Spotted a tram
Sampai jetty, ada banyak feri dan boat yg dah menunggu. U have to look at your paper/pass, as to which deck u hve to go to. Ada bnyk deck sini. Ours was dock 10.

Flowers at the dock
A lot of boats and ferries parked at the bank.
The river cruise lasted for an hour and a half or so. From the dock, going to Margaret Island and back to the dock.  Let's look at the view from the cruise. U can bring your own food on board. There are also kiosk selling drinks and snacks.

The breathtaking view

The castle district

From afar

The Chain Bridge,  a suspension bridge that spans the River Danube between Buda and Pest, the western and eastern sides of Budapest, the capital of Hungary.
 Those who want to stop at Margaret Island can do so, at 12pm, another ferry will come and pick u up. What can u do at Margaret Island? Sightseeing, picnic, bird watching, jogging, etc. My plan was to have a picnic there and went to the castle at 12, but the group seemed not so eager to stop, so we didnt get off the ferry....

Sampai dock, kami jalan ke next station and wait for the bus to take us to the castle district.

Relax nampak :)

BUDAPEST AT NIGHT


BudaPest is the capital and the most populous city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union.  The city is also gezetted as one of the Unesco's heritage site. Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is bisected by the River Danube. Its 19th-century Chain Bridge connects the hilly Buda district with flat Pest. A funicular runs up Castle Hill to Buda’s Old Town, where the Budapest History Museum traces city life from Roman times onward. 

Personally, i feel that Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities i have ever seen after Edinburgh 😀. Memang sngt cntik building serta scenery di sini.

That evening, after rehat dn lepak2 kejap di hostel, Aina n I went out to check out the area while the rest still relaxing at the hostel. We went to Undrassy Ùt, one of the famous streets in the city to search for any night bus tour. I know that the city looks very vibrant  and captivating at night, that's why i really want to find the night bus tour. Carik punya carik, ingatkan jauh, rupanya blh jln kaki aja dr hostel... kami memilih city sightseeing hop on hop off bus. With 22 euros, we get the service of the night bus, day bus and river cruise for both day and night.

Lepas beli tiket, kami jalan kaki balik hostel. Spotted HRC on the way back, good! Masa balik tu kami lalu kedai2 yang sangat cantik bangunannya...tempat ni dikenali sebagai Vàci Utca or Vàci street, situated just at downtown Budapest.  It's a pedestrian shopping street so no motor vehicles are allowed. terpegun tengok kecantikan buildings mereka, mmg sngt cantik dan klasik.  

Sesat2 pon ambik gambar jugak...
Sampai hostel semula dalam 5 lbh... tercungap2 dngn dak Aina 🤣🤣🤣.... terbakar kalori... haha.. we went back to the hostel to meet the others.  


Sabar menanti...hahaha 
Sampai jugak kami akhirnya...




Night bus departs at 8.15pm at St Peters Basilica.. so kami ada 2 jam lbh lg nk ronda2 shopping district yang cantik tadi 😁...





Mula2 kami ke Hungarian Underground market.

Rambang mata tuh
A lot of things are sold at this street including souvenirs, folklore items, vintage home decor, handmade shoes and mcm2 lah... 😁 there are also exclusive designer shops like Furla, Zara, La Nerella, and many more.

T-shirts and caps, not so cheap though



The city's famous shopping street, Váci utca

I've seen a lot of these here, and I have no idea of what they are 


Singgah Rock Shop kejap...

One of the replica's in HRC Budapest

HRC shirts
HRC Budapest also has a bar outside


Hungarians ni memang suka makan2.. bila petang ja, penuh lah kedai2
makan kat sini...


Hari gelap agak awal dalam pukul 6 macam tu...  terjumpa makanan tradisional Hungary ni...Kurtos kalacs,  try makan, sedap juga... Bahan2nya cuma tepung, air dan gula. tp yang di Prague lagi sedap rasanya.. dh dimodernised kan sikit kot, masak dalam oven, 

Kürtőskalács ,  is a spit cake specific to Hungarian-speaking regions in Romania, more predominantly the Székely land. It is made from sweet, yeast dough (raised dough), of which a strip is spun and then wrapped around a truncated cone–shaped baking spit, and rolled in granulated sugar. It is roasted over charcoal while basted with melted butter, until its surface cooks to a golden-brown color. During the baking process the sugar stuck on the kürtőskalács caramelises and forms a shiny, crispy crust. The surface of the cake can then be topped with additional ingredients such as ground walnut or powdered cinnamon (wiki).



Harganya blh tahan juga...
Sambil makan, kami teruskan perjalanan.... tangkap2 gambar di  Vorosmarty Square






Menjelang 7.30, kami pon jalan menuju ke St Peters Basillica, di mana kami harus berkumpul untuk night tour. Ramai juga yang nak naik night tour. beratur jugakla.. tapi kami sampai awal, jadi kami antara yang depanla.


St Peters Basilica

Our bus.
 Tepat 8.15, bus pon jalan....



the Most Beautiful Café In The World - New York Cafe.. tp x sempat nak

Astoria - a hotel with classic styling and a rich history ..

Kami juga berhenti di Hero's Square aka Hosok Tere.  Hősök tere is one of the major squares in Budapest, Hungary, noted for its iconic statue complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important Hungarian national leaders, as well as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
