Cardiff is a thriving city for visitors

Posted by Linda Davidson

Owners of Propex caravan water heaters should consider a trip to Cardiff, according to Berlitz Publishing and Insight Guides.

Rachel Fox, publishing manager for the travel guides, claimed that the city offers visitors a great choice of shopping, fascinating museums, friendly local people and a gateway to Wales' stunning countryside.

She explained that while Cardiff was once the world's greatest coal ports, it is now a centre for business, government and tourism.

"As well as the usual chain stores, Cardiff city centre has several beautifully preserved Edwardian and Victorian arcades, which are full of individual eateries, shops and boutiques," Ms Fox added.

Cardiff offers holidaymakers a wealth of activities, from shopping to museums and culture.

However, if sedentary pastimes are not enough, the city also hosts Cardiff festival between July and early September.

Furthermore, National Geographic Magazine has just named the Welsh city as number six in its list of top ten places to visit this summer.
