I went to Cardiff as a tourist. I was a bit of disappointed as I was looking for a good Welsh food to taste and experience the welsh ways of cooking food but I was not able to find any authentic restaurant that serves the real welsh food.
One way of knowing the culture of a certain country is thru their staples but it seems the food was not given an utmost importance in this city. What you will find here are mostly fast food chains and Italian restaurants. I think the culture of this city has deteriorated and will soon be gone and influences of other countries will prevail removing the Identity of Cardiff as an old city of Wales.
Millennium Stadium was the most amazing Rugby experience I have had - there has been a few. The singing was amazing - the crowd oozed passion and were so wonderfully one-eyed, in the nicest ever way.
Those around us were warm and welcoming and completed the whole experience. I have already recommend this as a bucket list item to others! Thank you Cardiff and the wonderful Welsh people we meet - looking forward to the RWC 1/4 final next year!
It is so different from London, visitors to the U.K. should not miss it. The castle is right in the centre of the city, sports facilities and events abound.
There is much nature to see in Cardiff and in the surroundings. And of course, Wales is famous for its National Opera and other entertainment events that are worthwhile just on their own.
Overall a nice city. People are very friendly and all ready to give you help when you needed. Nothing much to do though in the city except the tour of the castle.
Such a friendly and exhilarating place. The sun was shining which helped of course but I got the impression that Cardiff is a happy city even without sun.
The centre is so easy to get around and the shops are so varied with helpful assistants. The restaurants I went to were all of the highest standard and everyone seemed happy and glad to be alive. Maybe it was because One Direction were playing and all the little girls were out with flowers in their hair.
Beautiful city with enough to do for two full days with a well thought out programme. Recommend Cardiff Castle and Castle Coch.
Worth doing. Bay Area lovely in the evenings and has a great choice of restaurants.
Cardiff is not only a good place for relaxation for outdoor activities, it is also an ideal for learning, dining etc.
In the shopping complex close to St Queens Walk you must go to the perfume shop. the branded perfume is really cheap.
Cardiff is a great pace to stay with plenty of shops, restaurants and Cafes, a great place to both relax and party.
