|Train journey from Budapest to Vienna.|
OBB is the train company of Austria. Actually, u can also checkout the S-Barn, but i found OBB's website is more user friendly.
Very reliable website and the purchase was smooth. Paid by credit card and the e-tickets were sent to my email. 1 tip to buy cheaper tickets is to buy far in advance... as far as 6 months. Another tip: look for Sparschiene Österreich tickets. But these tickets are limited, they only have a certain amount of them in a day, that's why u need to buy in advanced. Another advantage of this Sparschiene Österreich tickets, up to 4 children up to the age of 15 can travel for free together with an adult passenger. So, Hanie went on the train for free but she only paid 3 euros for the seat reservation .
I bought our tickets to Vienna for 15 euros and 19 euros. Some got the 15 euros and some got the 19 euros. And we paid extra 3 euros for the seats. Seat booking is not compulsory but we preferred to sit together, so we paid for the seat reservation.
We departed from Keleti Train Station, the main international and inter-city railway terminal. Jangan tersilap dengan station lain..ada banyak train stations in Budapest. It seems that all busses in front of Maverick Hostel will go to Keleti. So, we just hopped on one of the buses. Journey was short and i didn't know why but it was free. We had our tickets, but the driver did not want them...
|On our way to Keleti. Goodbye Budapest!|
|This is the main entrance to Keleti Train Station. U walk down from the bus,|
u will see this building.
Let's go inside.... Not as modern as Wien HBF.
|Once u enter, u can go to the board and check which track to go to. There|
are plenty of tracks. So, make sure u are on the right one.
|Cute train ni... Not ours!|
|Inside our train... There are rooms. Each room can fit in 6 people.|
So we had 3 rooms for our group.
|Outside at the isle|
|Killing time at the cafe...|
|This train actually disembarked at Warsaw, Poland...|
Bila la kami nak ke Poland...?
|Hegyeshalom (still in Hugary) is an important |
border station between Austria and Hungary
|Gyor is halfway between Budapest and Vienna. The train stopped for a few|
Time really flew.. In no time, we were already in Wien HBF...
|Yaaaayyyy... we were here right on time, 11.21am. Behind us was our train.|
|Very modern train station, jauh beza dengan Keleti|
|Simpan bag dulu|
|Welcome to Wien HBF|
|We took a pic inside the most expensive toilet we had ever paid...|
hahahaha... 2.50 euros. Very modern toilet indeed.
There are a lot of passes when visiting Vienna. U can choose the one that suits u best. They have Vienna City Card 24/48/72 hours cards, 24/48/72-hour passes,Weekly travel pass and many more. We chose metro Vienna shopping pass where we could use the pass until 8pm that night. The price was slightly cheaper than a day pass, i think about 7 euros. This pass enables u to use all the metro lines in the city.
We only had a few hours in Vienna as we would depart to Prague in the evening... So, off we go to the city!
