Our journey in the Country lasted two full weeks but we had already been in Budapest so we stop here just two days.
Foresee two more days if you never been there.
No matter where you get into the Country, don't forget to register your motorhome and pay for it (mandatory on motorways and few other roads).

Our itinerary:
Lendava  (Slovenia-Hungary border, at last motorway service area buy vehicle registration, first camera few kilometers ahead).
Heviz - Ketzhely (Spa)
Balatonboglar (Lake Balaton, nothing more than a puddle of water)
Pecs
Hortobagy National Park (Puszta, avoid to go on  August 20 (St Stephen's Day, Bridge fair), lot of folklore but really crowdy, all Hungarians seem to meet here)
Eger
Szilsvasvarad (Bükk National Park, tour by small train and hiking possible)
Holloko (small village, Unesco heritage)
Budapest
Szentendre
Visegrad
Esztergom
Vezprem
Pannonhalma
Gyor
Fertod
Sopron
Klingenbach (Hungary-Austria border, on Austria motorways mandatory vignette under 3.5t, Go-Box over).

p.s. If you stop at campsites, you should know that, as in other Eastern European countries, showers are sometimes common.
Separated between males and females but open and without privacy.

Thanks for the information. I'm just on my way home from Croatia but you're already whetting my appetite for another trip this direction!

I like Hungary.

I came back through to the customs to stop and show passport on one occasion. There was a massive queue of 2 full lanes and it was going to take an absolute age to get through.

I was on a Hayabusa, we were on our way back from Romania I think, and I wasn’t going to wait if I could help it.

So I rode down the outside of the lines of traffic all the way to the front, I was going through, or they would stop me and delay me, I’ll take the chance.

The border guard crossed over to me and as I was about to stop and “chat” or hopefully just show my documents, he waved me on saying “ Hayabusa, fast bike, don’t stop! “

I like Hungary 😂

Not 100% sure but you should avoid queue (Hungary to Romania and viceversa) if you arrive to border around lunch time.
