    Your question just made me realise that i've done hardly any travelling in Wales. I've only ever been to West Wales once in my 48 years. Odd, as i've been all over England ad France.

    West Wales is wonderful even in the cold and the rain. Llangranog a personal favourite. Just 3 pubs, a little beach and the odd shop

    I was sitting outside a pub in Llangranog in warm sunshine only a month ago. Lovely place. Great walks from there too.

    Talacharn, outstanding scenery, good selection of pubs & restaurants. Superb beaches nearby.

    Re: Best Town in Wales

    I like Newquay

    But its a bit of a hike

    I never go further than Tenby and Saundersfoot

    Apart from Bosherston lakes for pike fishing

    Newgale is supposed to be lovely and the rocky headlands of St davids spectacular , but I don't have the time

    Newcastle Emlyn is a surprisingly good night out , loads of pubs , a kebab house and a framed cardiff city shirt on the wall in one of the boozers

    Although it's a city I believe, I do like St Davids.

    Aberystwyth is nice and I used to like going to Lampeter when my brother was in university there. Wrexham was nicer than I expected it to be as well.

    Tenby is great and I really enjoy the drive to Brecon - although I'm not a huge fan of my destination for some reason.

    Loved visiting Abergavenny when Glamorgan used to play there as well.

    Don't bother going to Newgale. It's freezing cold even in the height of summer. The Bosherton Lakes are great as is the beach at the end. Tenby is difficult to beat. Many of my ancestors were from there.

    I have a lot of time for towns like Barry or Bridgend

    I only go into cardiff to watch city , go fishing or go and see bands.

    I am not interested in wading through Queen Street or St davids 2 , not interested in the cafe quarter on a summer evening or the bars of St Mary Street, chapter arts centre is OK but apart from that I never used to bother .

    Barry has got the island , Porthkerry Park, plenty of trendy shops in High Street if that's your thing , the waterfront development with Asdas , Morrisons, some great kebab houses etc and the west side of Barry has some huge family housing with great views if you have that sort of money . If not there is lots of terraced housing . Loads for the kids to do if you have them .

    Of course its got its problems like everywhere else but I have always found Barry people to be really friendly .

    If I lived there I wouldn't pop into cardiff apart from to watch city , go to a gig or go fishing .

    Very good summary of Barry although Barry market day on a tuesday can be like a scene from Shaun of the dead.

    To be avoided at all costs. If you don't go, you can pretend it never happened.
