Cardiff is the biggest city in Wales, and its most influential when it comes to commerce, arts, culture, entertainment, and sports. Tourism plays a major part in the economy and livelihood of those who live in the city. In fact, National Geographic gave it a stamp of approval as the sixth travel destination for those seeking alternative places to visit. History states that it was once a struggling small town until it became a major port where coal was brought in the early part of the 1800s. Today, it stands out as Wales’ foremost travel spot because of the many interesting destinations it offers guests. St. David’s Hall is a music lover’s destination where live performances are held. For those who love nature, they can trek up to Twmbarlwm Mountain where they can enjoy limitless views of Cardiff. If you have any plans of visiting these places and more, a high number of comfortable and beautiful accommodations are found all over the city.
