All you need to know before traveling to Bucharest + Vlog
Beyond all expectations, today I’ll share some information on Bucharest, a city that until a few months ago, I never thought I’d want to visit.
One day I was scouring the web for some cheap deals and came across a €7 flight on the Ryanair website. I didn’t even stop to think if readers would find this destination interesting enough or if I even had the budget for a trip to Romania, I just clicked the ‘buy now’ button.
I don’t let any good deals go to waste! 🙂
I made a video where I share all the information I wish I had known before traveling to Bucharest. The feedback received so far it’s very encouraging, most comments say that it’s very accurate and that I paint a clear picture.
I don’t know about you, but before I travel somewhere I need to watch a lot of videos to get a better understanding of what to expect during my trip.
Here’s a summary of what I cover in my video:
✓ Bucharest Airports
- “Henri Coanda” International Airport known as “Otopeni Airport”
- Private airport
✓ Is Bucharest part of the European Community? YES
✓ Is the Euro commonly used? NO, you have to exchange your money for LEI (also called RON). 1 EURO equals 4.5 LEI
✓ How to get from the airport to the city center?
- TRAIN (8, 1 LEI -> € 1.80)
- BUS (780 and 783 -> 8.6 LEI about € 2)
- TAXI (1.39 LEI per Km)
✓ How to get around?
✓ What hotel did you stay at? At the Hotel Christina, very central.
✓ Where can I try traditional Romanian food?
- An expensive option
- A cheaper alternative
✓ Is Bucharest safe? I was pleasantly surprised: I was around until late at night without having any problems.
✓ What are people like there? Since I stayed in Bucharest for 4 days only, I can’t give you an exhaustive answer. However, I can tell you that nothing unpleasant happened apart from the taxi drivers hurrying you to pay them at the end of the ride (which, to be fair, is totally understandable).
✓ Around the city VLOG
I hope the video has been quite exhaustive, otherwise, you can ask me for all the information you need.
