Wales…amazing Wales…Wales may not have all the fame or glory of England or Scotland but still is brimming with just as many treasures. There is something about Wales that captures people’s imagination even if it may be just about rolling hills and castles. I am trying to give you a brief description about some really magical places in South Wales. These places have many things to offer and once you step into UK, you can really consider visiting some of these places.


This is capital city of Wales and it is beautiful, well connected, and highly walkable and has all the amenities of a larger city. There are at least two places that you must visit to rejuvenate yourselves. One is the waterfront at Cardiff Bay and the second is Cardiff’s central market, home to numerous food vendors. You can just have a taste of local cuisine such as local cheese to beers, fresh cookies and creatively flavored Welsh Cakes.

Hay – on – Wye

This place is home to the Hay Festival, a world-famous literary festival. It is the used bookstore capital of the world. Beyond books, Hay-on-Wye has several cafes, antique shops, ice cream shops and restaurants. There is also a castle that will draw your attention. If you love antique things I am sure you will love this place.


You will be surprised to see this place. You will feel as if you are in Italy or France. The Pembrokeshire coast is one of Wales’s greatest draws. There are excellent walking paths and you can go for long leisure walks. The weather can be unpredictable sometimes and you may come across both sunshine and downpour. It is connected by trains. Most of the Wales places are just one or two hours apart by road.


This place is home to Tintern Abbey, which is an incredible complex worth visiting. Tintern Abbey was founded in 12th Century and went into ruin in 16th Century. This is an awesome place for photography and to explore. This is situated on the England border, a little distance away from Cardiff. It has also been immortalized in numerous poems.
