Amsterdam VS. Budapest: Which Is Better?

Hmm, this is going to be difficult.

I have not done a post like this before, purely because I find them challenging. For someone who loves to travel and loves to take adventures, this is very difficult.

Let’s start with Amsterdam…

If you remember from May 2018, I went to Amsterdam for my sister’s hen party for 4 days. Here is the full post if you would like to give it a read.

Amsterdam is definitely up there with one of my favourite places to visit in Europe, especially because when I was growing up there was such a big emphasis on it. I really enjoyed how much it felt like home. For me, I usually get home-sick pretty quickly, but considering I was there for a few days, it really did feel like home.

Amsterdam is, of course, a very beautiful place to visit. There are many many canals and lots of sights for its tourists. This is the one reason why I always wanted to go to Amsterdam. I had seen amazing photographs on social media, mainly Instagram, of travel bloggers posting these incredible shots of enormous buildings, pretty flowers and scenery; along with the canals in the background – and that’s what I have always wanted to see.

My favourite part about Amsterdam is definitely the friendliness of the people that live there, as well as the tourists. If I ever had any questions, problems or anything at all, everyone that I asked was happy to help and this meant a lot to me. I felt very safe being in Amsterdam, and it was an incredible experience that I will always remember.

And now it’s time for Budapest…

If you remember from August 2018, I went to Budapest with my friends for 4 days. Here is the full post if you would like to give it a read.

Budapest was absolutely incredible! It has been one of my favourite holidays so far. I kid you not, I will never forget the experience I had, especially spending it with some of my best friends.

I went to Budapest in early August, so as you can imagine it was sooooooo hot – I mean I loved it! Budapest in the day time is very pedestrian-friendly and is filled with lots of tourists, just like us. There are so many beautiful sights wherever you looked even whilst travelling on the trams.

Budapest’s nightlife is something quite interesting – it is absolutely breathtaking, especially when the city is all lit up and then you know it has begun. In my opinion, Budapest nightlife is better than Amsterdam or at least based on the experience’s I had. They are both very beautiful destinations and well-known places which are quite similar, yet completely different at the same time.

Personally, I think that for these two types of places, it definitely depends on who you go there with for you to be able to decide which one you prefer. I overall just had a better time in Budapest and I have always said that I will go back there in a couple years. On the other hand, I wouldn’t say that I would never go back to Amsterdam because of course, I would – I LOVE TO TRAVEL. But, what I mean is that I wouldn’t go out of choice. I would only go if I was invited or wanted to go with friends and/or family. I have so many other places on my bucket list that I would choose first.

I hope this post helps you in making your decisions, but definitely find out what activities you would like to do as this will determine which destination is best for you.

I have got lots of adventures planned for 2019, starting with Germany, Paris, Italy, Barcelona and Ibiza so I will be posting about those.

 

Where are you travelling for your next holiday?

  1. Iโ€™m looking to try and book something last minute for early April, and both of these places are on my list to consider! Definitely food for thought as I thought I was swaying more towards Amsterdam; maybe I should give Budapest a second look ๐Ÿ˜Š Sam x
