Most seasoned Hungarian vacationers plan domestic travel this year, state news wire MTI reports, citing a survey by tourism company Everguest and Tárki.
The representative survey of Hungarians who have taken at least one multi-day trip in Hungary or abroad in the past two years, showed 40% plan to vacation in Hungary this year, 21% will take trips both in Hungary and abroad, and 11% have their sights set only on foreign destinations.
About 18% said they do not want to travel this year and around 10% were uncertain about their vacation plans.
A little more than 67% said they definitely want to visit Lake Balaton in 2021, and around one-fifth indicated they'd like to visit the capital.
Everguest managing director Miklós Belán said Budapest could host as many as 1 million domestic guests this year.
