UK Wales overview

UK Wales Travel Guide
One of the so-called home countries of the UK, Wales, representing the nose and brow of the witch’s face – Great Britain looks like a witch’s face and hat side-on on a map – is best known for its hills, valleys and coast. The most vibrant part is that of the south where the capital, Cardiff, and the other large cities of Newport and Swansea reside. This is also where the best beaches are, while the north of the country is more rural, and the middle, mountainous and the least populous. Wales has a distinct look and feel from the rest of the UK; the roads are less congested, things are more spread out, and it rains here more than anywhere. Its handful of cities is complemented by numerous hamlets and seaside towns. Cardiff is the main gateway, with its international airport and motorway access.
