South Wales is full of drama. It stretches over 100 miles, from historic Chepstow and its imposing castle near the English border to the big skies and epic sea views of the jagged coast in the west.
The big draw here is Pembrokeshire, where almost 200 miles of magical shoreline is protected as a national park – home to craggy cliffs, golden sands, pretty villages and traditional seaside resorts. St David's, Britain's smallest city, nestles at its westernmost tip and attracts tourists and religious pilgrims alike.
And modern-day Swansea is now emerging as a serious rival to the thriving capital, Cardiff. While Cardiff wins on shopping and culture, Swansea has its National Waterfront Museum and the poetic verse of Dylan Thomas to celebrate.
