Travel to Wales: The UK’s Lesser Explored Country

by margaret 27. July 2011 10:40

When heading across the pond to the United Kingdom, many will make plenty of time for England and Ireland; some even may head north to Scotland. But outside of people within the UK, you don’t often hear about people visiting Wales, the tiny country west of England. Wales has a lot to offer, from beaches to inland resorts, famous castles and can easily be traveled to through cheap domestic flights within Europe and the UK. When starting your trip in the North of Wales, there are several can’t miss spots. 

Llandudno: The Welsh Resort Town 

For many Englanders, a popular local holiday is heading to the beaches of Wales, something the country has quite a bit of. The north is no exception with the beautiful beach town of Llandudno. Llandudno is Wales’ largest resort town. While home to many modern attractions for tourists to enjoy, boardwalk included, one of the first things you’ll notice are the Victorian style Bed and Breakfasts and hotels that line the beach area. Many locals and tourists will start frequenting the beaches as early as April, and enjoy them through the fall.

Among the gorgeous views of the area lies the Great Orme, which can be accessed by car, cabin lift or a tram system that was built in 1902. The Great Orme features picturesque views from the top and is one of two artificial ski slopes in Wales. One of the best ways to experience it is by driving along the coast, leading all the way up to the Great Orme Summit complex. Once at the summit, on a clear day, you can get views of the Isle of Man and the Lake District in Northern England.

Conwy Castle 

Only a quick five minute drive from Llandudno is Conwy, where the famous Conwy Castle lies. Conwy is a walled town, with the primary focus being the can’t miss Conwy Castle, built in only six years between 1283 and 1289, and constructed by Edward I. Visiting Conwy Castle is definitely an experience, as is visiting and walking through any ancient castle in Europe. While a lot of it has deteriorated over the years, guides will tell you where everything was and how it looked as you walk around the Castle grounds. A trek all the way to the top of each tower (a narrow walk by the way!) will give you a magnificent view of the whole town, castle and the railway bridge built to the castle in the 19th century.

Outside of the castle, Conwy is a small town that does offer tourists pubs, restaurants and other little tourist attractions. Head towards the water and you’ll find the smallest house in Great Britain. Measuring in at 10 ft x 6 ft, it was once actually inhabited by a family and most recently by a fisherman who was too tall to even stand up in the house! Today visitors can take a peek inside, for a small fee of course.

Betws-y-Coed

Heading south of Conwy, you’ll run into Wales most popular inland resort town, Betws-y-Coed. The small village, population just 534, is the main village of the famous Snowdonia National Park. The exceptionally beautiful and peaceful area is where the River Conwy meets the River Llugwy and River Lledr. While there isn’t much more than a few café’s and tourist shops, the village shouldn’t be missed on your trip to Northern Wales, even if you’re just stopping by to get a view of the scenery.

Hiking Snowdonia 

If you’re into hiking and spending time in the great outdoors, stick around the Snowdonia National Park area after leaving Betws-y-Coed. Here you’ll find trails to hike through, with most people focusing on the popular Snowdon Mountain, though there are several mountains surrounding it that are less busy. There is of course a way of getting to the top if you’re not a fan of hiking or just want to get there quicker. The Snowdon Mountain Railway is available for visitors to get them to the top of Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales.  

   

A Name You Won’t Forget, But Can’t Remember

Another quick stop on your tour in Northern Wales is the longest named town in Europe (and only one of in the world!). That would be Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Go ahead, try pronouncing it! Llanfair PG, as it’s commonly shortened to, is village on the island of Anglesey in Wales. Many tourists only stop by on their way through Wales to get a picture of the town sign. Wondering what on earth the translation is? The name of the town means “St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool of Llantysilio of the red cave.” Easy to remember, right!?   

 

LongestNameWales

A sign by the train station in town shows the English translation of the long Welsh name 

 

With everything in such close distance, it’s easy to spend a full day exploring all that North Wales has to offer. Wales is easy to get to through England. You can find cheap flights to London or cheap flights to Europe and make your way over there from a smaller, local airport on one of the many cheap domestic flights. While often forgotten by many, Wales is a wonderful country to explore, through the north and beyond.

To Cruise, or Not To Cruise

by margaret 21. July 2011 12:00

When it comes to traveling, I like to go where I want to go. If there are cheap flight tickets for the weekend to a place I’ve never been, I’ll take it! But going on a tour while I’m there? Forget about it! I’m there to see things that I’ve read about in magazines and blogs, eat where I want to eat and not necessarily end up in the most touristy of spots. And I know I’m not the only one. Travelers all over the world forgo the guidebook and do as they please while on vacation. So a cruise really isn’t the type of vacation for us. Or is it? I asked Carrie Finley-Bajak of Cruise Buzz to try and convince me and travelers like me to go on a cruise. Let’s see if she can get the job done!

Not to Cruise

The one thing that always deterred me from wanting to go on the cruise was the idea of being trapped on a boat (albeit a giant boat!) for days in the middle of the ocean. That’s of course a rather dramatic way of looking at things though! While you are on the boat for days at a time sometimes, people always seem to be on some sort of schedule. Anytime I’ve watched a travel show or listened to friend’s story about their cruising experiences, it all seems to revolve around doing activities when other people wanted you to do them. You dock into the port and only have a certain amount of time to see the local area you’re in. That kind of thing is great for some people, but it’s never really appealed to me. It’d be like the time I was trapped at an all-inclusive resort with nowhere interesting to go (apparently the idea there is to relax!).

 What is your opinion on cruising the open seas? Photo by Thomas Quine, Creative Commons

 

To Cruise 

Let’s start the convincing! I asked Finley-Bajak why a traveler like me would want to go on a cruise. “First off, anyone that loves water will probably enjoy a cruise. The challenge is to match the right cruise line to the individual. There are plenty of choices, so assuming that a person does not suffer from severe motion sickness, I am confident that cruising is a good choice.” Ok, so we have options it seems. And who isn’t a fan of spending some time in the water?

There are all sorts of travelers out there that cruises can appeal to. The one you might think would least enjoy a cruise are people whose entire vacation is based around outdoor activities like kayaking, boating, skiing, hiking and more. If you’re one of them, then according to Finley-Bajak, there are actually cruises out there for you. “For adventure cruisers that want to use the boat/ship to access remote places of Alaska, the Galapagos, and Antarctica there are small cruise lines or smaller cruises in larger fleets.”

Whether it’s a vineyard in France or a historical bar in Philly, when I travel, everything seems to center around food and drinks. To my excitement, there are cruise ships out there that cater to the foodie in all of us! Many larger luxury ships offer wine events and hangouts for foodies. “Foodies will love ships with facilities that allow for learning: Oceania Marina and the larger Holland America Line ships have purpose-built facilities for cooking,” mentions Finley-Bajak.

Overall, the best tip that came my way for first time cruisers though is to take one close to home. Out of New York, there are actually overnight cruises to nowhere. This gives you a chance to experience what it’s like to be on a cruise ship for a night, and see if you’d like to go on a longer outing in the future. Finley-Bajak does suggest staying close to home for your first cruise, and cheap tickets can always be found for first-timers cruising around the Caribbean. 

  

Where Will You Cruise? 

So adventurous travelers, are you convinced? While I admit I’ll never tire of traveling off the beaten path, I would be curious to try out a specific cruise that caters to my travel needs and interests. If there’s enough to keep me entertained between ports, then ok, I’ll try one!

Direct Yangon-Jakarta-Bali Flight Service by Myanmar Airways International in November

by 21. July 2011 09:30
Myanmar’s flag carrier Myanmar Airways International recently said that it will begin direct flight service in November 2011 linking Yangon with Bali and Jakarta.

The flight service is being started in an attempt to boost the bilateral trade between Myanmar and Indonesia.

The decision to start the direct Yangon-Jakarta-Bali flight service has come after the recent visit of Myanmar President U Thein Sein to Indonesia this year in May.

Thein Sein said that the plan to start a direct flight service linking Yangon with Jakarta and Bali by Myanmar Airways International is keeping in view the potential of the two countries in the tourism sector with both having beautiful beaches, scenery and historic cultural heritage.

The airline also said that there were plans to introduce Yangon-Singapore-Jakarta flights soon. Besides, a direct flight service between Yangon and Dubai will also be started in October 2011. The airline is also planning more flights to Qatar, UAE, Japan and South Korea.

The Myanmar Airways International is currently operating flight services from Yangon to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Gaya, Guangzhou and Siem Reap.
