Phillips and Scotchmer are winners of the coveted Guidebook of the Year award. Comprehensively updated - while still full of colourful reflection and corny gags! - this second edition of Budapest has also been thoroughly refreshed and reformatted with a swish new design, far more colour and photographs, and easier-to-use grid-referenced maps. It is the essential travel companion to a city that sits outside the euro zone and therefore offers better value than some of its European neighbours. As well as short breaks and business conferences, Budapest has a growing reputation for affordable dental work, cosmetic surgery and luxury spa treatments - so visitors can really return 10 years younger...

So whether travelling on business, for pleasure or for pain, in high style or with finances frankly 'a béka segge alat' ('lower than a frog's arse'), this is the book to buy.

Here, too, is the practical information needed for a fulfilling and trouble-free trip, from public transportation and accommodations to sports, customs, and festivals. This guide features:
