The dream destinations of Hungarians
Turizmusonline.hu writes that, according to a recent survey, Hungarians would like to visit exotic islands and the biggest cities of the world, if their decisions weren’t limited by anything.
If you could travel to any place in the world, where would you go? This was the question that repjegy.hu asked its visitors. They received more than 32,000 answers in one month, based on which they put together the top list of dream destinations for Hungarians. The list contains ageless favourites and some surprising choices as well.
- Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The survey was conducted in September-October, when the weather slowly starts to take a cold turn in Hungary. So it’s not surprising that many people desire a tropical island, palm trees and sandy beaches. Bora Bora’s 10th place is quite classy if we are aware that it competed with all types of travel destinations in the world.
- London, United Kingdom
London always has a secured place on a list as it is one of the most popular cities in the world. Its diversity has something to offer to all travellers, let it be art, entertainment or sightseeing. London is modern and historic, multicultural and very British, and lively and calm at the same time. With one word, it is everything you might be looking for.
- Sydney, Australia
The world’s biggest country and smallest continent is quite an attractive destination. Even though it’s very far away from Hungary, walking on top of the Sydney Tower, admiring the Opera House and petting koalas and kangaroos are all worth the 30 hour flight.
- Bali, Indonesia
Peace, homeliness, exoticism. These are usually what travellers look for in the pearl of Indonesia, Bali. It is characterised by imposing sea coasts, rich culture, exciting gastronomy and the ultimate exotic environment. Who would say no to a trip to Bali?
- Bangkok, Thailand
Thailand’s capital city is controversial at the first sight. Temples, markets, bustling, and chaotic transport – the city first baffles you, and then captivates you. It seems like many Hungarians are attracted by the colourful whirl of the city.
- Miami, USA
Maybe you wouldn’t even think that this resort paradise is one of the cleanest cities in the USA. Miami is mostly known for its climate: it welcomes you with constant sunshine and sultriness. No wonder people would prefer relaxing on the beach in the shade of palm trees while sipping on a cocktail instead of bundling up in the autumn coolness.
- Los Angeles, USA
Another American metropolis on Hungarians’ top list. Some parts of LA might even be more famous than the city itself. There’s Hollywood, Disneyland, Beverly Hills, Malibu etc. They are probably all familiar to you as they are frequently featured in movies. Visiting the city of angels is quite an experience!
- Male, Maldives
If you imagine a beautiful tropical island, then it probably looks something like the Maldives. Bungalows rise from the crystal clear, azure ocean, huge coco palms cast a shadow over the snow white sand, and a diverse water fauna dazzles scuba-divers. This is a dream destination all over the world for sure.
- Barcelona, Spain
It is told that the capital of Catalonia is such a multicultural centre in Europe that everyone should visit it at least once. The Mediterranean city doesn’t only attract travellers with its bustling life, but also with its never ending list of historic monuments. It seems like many people want to visit Barcelona.
- New York, USA
We all imagine one of the world’s biggest city in a certain way even though most of us haven’t even been there. The Big Apple is both an economically and a culturally important point of the world. It is characterised by a perpetual motion which is hard to find anywhere else. New York is the absolute dream destination of Hungarians.
