Explanations for revert[edit]

I have reverted the following edit. The citation for your first sentence, Yahoo Answers, is not a reliable source and you need one if you're going to say Budapest is the "rip off capital in Europe".

Your second sentence, listing the common scams, doesn't seem like it belongs on an article such as this. Tourism in Hungary isn't a travel guide, like http://wikitravel.org/en/Hungary, more just general information on the tourism industry. That's just my opinion, I'm not involved in editing any tourism related articles around here, but I ran a search on all other Tourism in --- wikipedia articles (150 odd) and none mention the word scam.

Regardless, to be included in this article, it would have to be proven that scamming in Hungary is more prevalent there than most places in the world, otherwise it's not noteworthy. Your reference, a travel advisory section of a US government website, doesn't prove that. No matter how safe the country, something's always going to be listed. For example, the US government's travel advisory for Australia states "Foreign visitors in popular tourist areas are targets for pickpockets, purse-snatchers, and petty thieves".[1]. Cheers.
