Member Name: abundzu
Advantages: Gorgeous scenery, good hospitality
Disadvantages: Can be hectic come rugby season..
My review of Wales is as simple as this: bendigedig! (Having grown up in this fantastic country I feel I am qualified to write a review, however, I think I should leave out the welsh..)
Often the place is the brunt of many jokes (and admittingly, if entering from the M4 the view of the muddy Severn and the bleak marshlands might make you inclined to turn around, especially after paying the ridiculous toll charge..)
From the friendly, cosmopolitan buzz of Cardiff to the serenity of the quiet fishing towns on the west coast, you'll be suprised at the range of things Wales has to offer. The tourism initiative has improved transport links, especially trains and the quality of roads are good. Being a peninsula country the beach is never far away (try the mumbles and the general south for some gorgeous blue flag delights) and the same can be said for mountains -- Wales has long been nicknamed 'God's country' and an afternoon drive through the Brecon Beacons really solidifies that as fact.
Of course it's not all scenery -- if you fancy thrills, Oakwood theme park (Pembrokeshire) is a good day out and for the children Folly Farm cannot be beaten!
Summary: Always worth a visit.
