So if you’re a backpacker, on a hen do/stag do or just on holiday, and you’re looking for ideas of what to do in Budapest, we’ve put together this handy guide on what you can expect after you’ve been on this ultimate aquatic bash.
YOU MIGHT HAVE A HANGOVER THE NEXT DAY
With two bars and all-you-can-drink available on the boat for beer, wine and champagne, it would be difficult not to get at least a little merry. There’s no need to load up on pre-drinks for this one, they also offer beer pong tables so you can bring out your inner sportsman, and get tipsy at the same time. But the too-much-fun boat also brings with it the likelihood of a mean hangover the next day, so make sure to load up on water and painkillers for the morning after!
YOU WILL HAVE VAGUE MEMORIES OF KISSING STRANGERS UNDER A BRIDGE
There is an old superstition in Budapest that is still followed to this day: that if you pass under a bridge on the river Danube without kissing someone, you will have bad sex for at least seven years. Now you may or may not be superstitious yourself, but given what’s at stake, are you really willing to take that risk? Many people will not be, so expect at least a couple of offers to make out if you’re hanging on the top deck!
YOU CHANGED YOUR PROFILE PIC TO YOU IN FRONT OF THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING
No need to bring a camera, professional photographers are on hand to make sure some photos of you looking fly as fuck make it to Facebook. You can tell which travelers have been through Budapest by seeing the classic lit up Parliament building in the background. And with the breathtaking views of Budapest making up the perfect backdrop, this is a photo op that you don’t want to miss.
YOUR LEGS WILL HURT FROM DANCING SO MUCH
With DJ’s pumping some of the best music to be heard in Budapest, you’d be mad not to have a cheeky boogie. Speaker systems are rigged around the boat so you don’t miss out if you go for a smoke, and a lighting rig helps to finish off the atmosphere. Who needs the gym when you can getcha dance on?
YOU WAKE UP COVERED IN GLITTER
If you got glittered on the boat or not, you will wake up sparkling and will probably find random glitter in your suitcase for weeks to come. It seemed like an amazing idea 4 beers in, but now you realize that you won’t be able to skip that morning shower before heading to breakfast. Just remember - your memories may fade but glitter lasts FOREVER!
YOU WILL HAVE SOME FANTASTIC NEW MEMORIES THAT YOU CAN SAVOUR FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

Halloween is upon us, and although you’re probably too old to go trick or treating without looking a bit creepy, you can certainly raise a beer or two and party down. Costumes for the season tend to fall into two categories - low effort and built on a budget of less than what a beer costs, or, oh so edgy and referential to some scandalous societal issue of the day.Read more
Budapest is built for summer. Frankly, it’s the season we do best, which is probably why it’s so busy here when it gets hot - with tourists and locals competing for every inch of green space and water this city has to offer, and bars scrambling to get and many outdoor seats set up as possible.Read more
