DESTINATION GUIDE

Wales

Wales is a beautiful country forming a part of the UK. This country is small but packs a lot of punch when it comes to tourist attractions. The beautiful country is dotted with scenic hills, as well as a lovely seaside, with many UNESCO protected beaches. The people are warm and filled with enthusiasm, always willing to make tourists feel comfortable in their country.

When it comes to historical attractions, the country punches above its weight with the breathtaking island of Anglesey housing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Further down is the city of Swansea not too far from the Gower Peninsula, and is a place for tourists to enjoy when they visit. The country may not be as powerful as its neighbours, but it is up there when it comes to beauty and adventure.

Channel Islands

The Channel Island follows through on its name, and is a group of islands that are dotted throughout the narrow stretch of sea that separates the French from the English. It consists of islands including Aldermen, Sara, Herm, Guernsey, and Jersey. Although these islands are nearer to France than England, it has a very British feel. The islands offer stunning coastlines and beautiful historic harbours.

Tourists who enjoy photography will love to take shots of the beautiful birds who call these islands home. Seafood cuisine is advanced here even more than the UK mainland with a wide range of seafood delicacies to choose from. Visitors who come to the Channel Islands do so through ferry or via small plane with excellent transportation services to be found in both France and England.

The island also has quite a history and tourists have always found good historical value when visiting the museums located on these islands.

The people of Channel Islands are known for their fierce independence, and although English is well spoken throughout the islands, the places of interest are more described using French. The Channel Island is indeed a place worth visiting.

Vatican City

This city enters the Guinness Book of records as the smallest sovereign state in the world and is entirely located in the city of Rome. Fortunately, tourists who want to visit the Vatican City do not have to profess to the Christian Catholic faith before enjoying this fantastic destination. Tourist attractions include the St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican, as well as the world renowned Sistine Chapel.
