I spent 4 long happy years in Cardiff whilst at university. The city is one of the prettiest and cleanest city's in this country.
Cardiff is served by a good public transport system which makes it easy to get in and out of Cardiff at all times of the day. The only thing that let's Cardiff down on transport is the lack of facilities for the late night reveller to get home, without forking out a fortune on cab's that is.
Cradiff is served by a vast range of shopping area's with all the large high street brand's present. Cardiff also support's a number of shopping arcades which are home to "the more fancier" clothes shop's if that your thing.
Since Cardiff hosted the rugby world cup, things have steadily improved with a vast amount of night spot's and eateries opening up all the time. The huge information screen in Queen Street is also very usefull for advertising local events.
There is a huge range of nightspots to suit everyones desire from hardcore dance, too cheezy 70's night's and quite local's.
Cardiff is a very open and green city, as there is a vast areas of open park land, and playing fields dotted all around the city, its easy to get away from the stress' of city life need be.
If history and architecture is your thing, then Cardiff won't dissapoint, their is a vast range of site's ranging from the magnificent castle, to the more civic venues of the museum and town hall.
What really makes Cardiff special is the friendly outlook of its' natives, they are are really what makes the city special.
