According to the Metro, the travel experts at Lonely Planet have voted Wales’ coastline as the world’s greatest region in it’s best-in-travel 2012 guide!

The All Wales Coast Path is due to be completed next year and will spread 870 miles, so will be a wonderful way to enjoy what Wales has to offer. The guide said of the path: “What a wonderful thing. How better to truly appreciate the shape and soul – of a nation?”

The town of Porthmeirion is even described as “part Italian Riviera, part wedding cake, part surreal spy thriller.”

I visited Wales a lot when I was younger and have to say I loved the coastline in particular, it was always magical and quite beautiful, so I’m not surprised at this declaration from the Lonely Planet at all, it’s merely made me want to go back and visit once more!
