Budapest, unlike its neighbours Prague and Vienna, has succumbed less to the ravages of tourism since the advent of low-cost airlines but this is slowly changing. It is also creeping more and more onto the itineraries of backpacking inter-railers and so Budapest is generally having its profile lifted within European tourism.

Spending time in Ibiza certainly gets the blood pumping. For dance music lovers, this is not bad thing. Wherever you go in Ibiza you can hear electronic music being played, 24 hours a day.
