Great city with lots to do and friendly people, however downside is the poor standard of food and service in too many restaurants & cafe's
Glasgow is a beautiful city. It has many beautiful old and ancient medieval buildings (solidly built), historical sites/features such as famous monuments, cathedrals, museum, walk squares and universities etc.
There are also huge landspace parks for outdoor activities such as conducive for jogging, family outings, holding picnic and just sit and relax inside the parks. Is easy to get around using the public transport. The people in Glasgow, by and large, are friendly, warm and helpful. These wonderful values can be attributed to their culture and the good up bringing of the people in the city. Glasgow is a city that is worth spending a few days for sightseeing.
Such a wealth of things to do, visiting churches, museums and parks as well as bars and theatre. Friendly helpful people

First time we have been to the city, would come again, lots of landmarks & museums - which are free to enter.
We used the sightseeing bus to get around, buy two day ticket if you are staying over. good retail shopping. outside bars & cafe's gave it a cosmopolitan air. People are friendly, taxi's are reasonable.
Amazing city. If you like charity shops Byres Road and Dumbarton Roads are the place to go. Lots of great architecture around the central area.
Everywhere Rennie McIntosh influence. House for an Art Lover just off Paisley Rd is well worth a visit as is The People's Palace and Glasgow Green. Across the river the once infamous Gorbals is interesting example of urban regeneration and still some memories of the old area can be seen.
Glasgow is a fantastic city the slogan People make Glasgow is very apt as there are more characters in Glasgow than any other city including the capital.
the people really do make you feel welcome the shopping is on par with anywhere in the world especially Buchanan Street, with the Argyle Arcade, Buchanan Centre and for specialised items and expensive items Princess square is gorgeous
I went to Glasgow to see the old world sites and culture and was pleasantly surprised by the mixture of cosmopolitan attractions such as restaurants and shopping.
You can visit a hundreds years old cathedral, then within minutes do some high end shopping and have a meal in any cuisine you desire, Greek, Italian, Thai, or local. Glasgow has it all.
Glasgow is an exceptional city to explore. The history is absolutely amazing and so romantic. If you are Canadian you will see the immenseness of the Scottish involvement in Canada dating back 100's of years.
I am not prolific at writing or describing any of the sites - but 3-5 days are not nearly enough time to enjoy and visit all of the sites. All museums are free to the public to view!! Downtown Glasgow is awash with centuries old buildings. The architecture incredible and beautiful. One can imagine oneself walking the walk of anyone from the Wallace family or the Stewarts or many of the great historical clans. I love this city! Before visiting here I hardly gave it a thought but this is where history begins for much of the new world - a must see for all! Lots of greenery and flowers year round! July and August are the best time of year to visit when it might be warm and sunny.
Glasgow is a very bright city by night. We feel safe to walk around the city even at places where there is not many people as the city is well lit all over.
We use Glasgow as a bse to explore the surroundings including Loch Lomond and the Glengoyne Whisky Distillery, Ballock and the country side.
the Lychee oriental chinese 59 mitchell street provided an excellent meal it is down a drab side street but don't be put off by this the service and food are excellent good value for money Cafe Gandolifi was wounderfull for a relaxing sunday morning breakfast but its better to book even for breakfast.
It was an old city with lots of historic buildings, however, not very well maintained like those in London.
Been here for the second time and this time was for my MBA convocation. Compared to the first visit in year 2004, it's was different feeling.
It is slightly modern city compared to Edinburgh.
It is very different from Edinburgh and still seems to be trying to she'd it's working class background.
I don't think it has yet. I wouldn't not have been disappointed if we bypassed it.
Glasgow is large scottish city with good logistics to get anywhere else in Scotland, so you can find good hotel there and warm scotish atmosphere.
Glasgow is a little bit boring but they have Mackintosh! Seeing the buildings and comparing the details will be nice.
And, Shopping street is great.
Glasgow has a great selection of museums and art galleries, with the city holding a wonderful art collection.
The parks are magnificent, the architecture inspiring. The people are always so welcoming and friendly. The selection of restaurants cater for pretty well all tastes. I would recommend visiting the Burrell Collection, Kelvingrove Art Gallery, and Glasgow Cathedral. Also a walk around the Necropolis is worth the effort. Shopping in Buchanan Street and Argyle Street will give you all the brands and designer labels you could want. To eat, try Thai Fountain, Amber Regent, Piccollo Mondo, or The Chip.
glasgow is an easy city to get to, serviced by an international airport and two train stations, shuttle bus service into city is quick and cheap and getting about in the city is easy with a great taxi and cab service and underground.
a great city for architecture and culture as well as shopping and music and theatre all within walking distance if staying in the city centre or just a short drive or trainride if outwith the underground system. countryside on the doorstep with loch lomond just 30 mins away and the cairngorms and ski slopes no more than 2 hrs away in season. citizens of glasgow are among the friendliest in the world.
Great way to see all the attractions in Glasgow on the bus! Great for photography and if you love to admire all the great architectural designs in Glasgow.
We just loved it
Glasgow people are friendly, Plenty to see and do . Nightlife great, good restraunts and interesting museums and art.
Do get Glasgow in your itinerary of Scotland together with Edinburgh. Both cities are connected by a cheap bus service run by Scottish Citylink and Stagecoach Xpress running bus 900 for only GBP4!
