May Trip to Budapest/Prague - Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites :) I've spent some time looking at what I'd like to do in May when I'm heading to Budapest on a very reasonably-priced RT ticket. I was all over the place but with the realization that I only have 9 days on the ground [5/21 - 5/30], and a half a morning on the 10th day, I re-thought some things. A bit about me... I like having some flexibility in my itinerary and I almost never book all my hotels and trains before I leave home - typically just the first and last day's hotels, and then I try to plan a couple of days in advance, to ensure that I have a room when I get somewhere. I also don't mind moving on every couple of days, depending on how I'm feeling. That being said, this is just a rough itinerary, to be refined on the road :) I would appreciate any comments you have to make, or suggestions to take in [or take out] a portion. Thanks in advance for your help!

5/21 - AM arrival in Budapest, head off to a Pest hotel or hostel or pension [TBD - any suggestions for a non-hostel room under USD 50?], then hit the streets.
5/22 - Day 2 in Budapest. Night train to Prague.
5/23 - Prague
5/24 - Prague - maybe a morning trip to Kutan Hora
5/25 - Prague - evening bus to Cesky Krumlov
5/26 - Cesky Krumlov - evening shuttle to Vienna
5/27 - Vienna [been here before, just passing through this time] - early evening to Bratislava
5/28 - Bratislava in the AM, stop at a Danube bend town, on to Budapest
5/29 - Budapest - OR, earlier in the itinerary, add another day to Prague. In that case, omit Bratislava.
5/30 - Budapest - a last walk around in the morning, then off to the airport for a late afternoon flight back to NYC.

Thoughts?
