Format: Paperback
Here is the most detailed guide you will find about Wales for the budget traveller on the market. The Researchers have managed to find out about almost every story behind every city, village, street and shop in Wales. They have uncovered secret sights and activities that even local did not know about. All the usual commercial and tourist activities are included as well as events up and coming. a thourough guide...highly reccomended and by far a more useful guide than the lonely planet.Highly reccomended is the six nation rugby competition for the carnival atmosphere in late Feb' and March.

Very good indeed. As usual Rough Guides put Lonely Planet to shame.
I've lived in Swansea for a year now and discovered things I never knew by reading this book!
Great for planning days out - no nonsense advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Good Info 25 Sept. 2004
By Issaquahzimodo - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just got back from a trip to Wales. I had this book and Lonely Planet. This book had much more information, good maps and even good cultural and historical background. And it still fit in the back pocket of my jeans! It directed me to the Black Boy pub in Caernarfon - in business since 1533, so they say - and the Farmer's Arms in St. Davids and it was worth it for that alone. I particularly like the neolithic sites on Anglesey and this book directed me to some very interesting tombs, dolmens, stone circles, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Wales Guide out there 8 Jun. 2006
By Skye Viajante - Published on
Format: Paperback
I searched and searched for a good travelers guide to Wales. this is the best I found. I did utilize the wales visitors bureau for more options in accomodations, but if your doing a driving tour of Wales, this book is perfectly set up for that. It hits every little highway and biway, town by town, region by region.

We are planning our itinerary by it.
3.0 out of 5 stars Boring, reads like a bad version of the Bible 17 Jan. 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was kind of disappointed in the rough guides series. I own a copy of at least one book from every travel guide made and the rough guides are not high on my list. In the front is about 10 pages of nice photos, then the next 500 pages is like reading the phone book. On the other end of the spectrum is the DK eyewitness series which is packed from cover to cover with photos and advice on every single page.Rough guides series do not do a whole heck of alot to entice you to visit anywhere.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide 12 Jun. 2007

This guide breaks Wales down into several sections, and does a great job of highlighting the best things to do and see in each part. I would recommend the Rough Guides to anyone - a great series.
