    Favorite thing: Cardiff Bay used to be an industrial area with old docks, but it is nowadays transfered into an entertainment and recreation area with walkways, attractions and both trendy and traditional restaurants and pubs.

    It is located about 2 miles south of the city centre and can be reached by various local buses, including the BayXpress. Cardiff Bay has its own train station which is served from Queen Street Station and the Central Station. You can also walk from the city centre along the river Taff which takes about 30 minutes, but it is not too exciting.

    Favorite thing: Cardiff Bay was before known as "Tiger Bay". In the last years it has been changing into a great area to live, eat or have business (and I have checked visiting every time I go to Wales)
    It is the perfect place to find restaurants or for a walk.

    I always try to go every time I go to Cardiff.

    Ruth at Norweigan Church

    Fondest memory: I really liked this Norweigan Church down by the Bay. Much of this area is under development and it's well worth visiting. I don't know why the church is thus called, but it's got a nice coffee-shop and a cool art gallery upstairs.

    Pier Head Building

    Favorite thing: Cardiff Bay is the recent developing business area of Cardiff. From Cardiff Bay.
    You can visit National Techniquest, welsh Industrial Maritime Museum and the red Pier Head Building is its landmark.
    Also, you'll see the beautiful view, many restaurants(there is a Japanes restaurant, very nice but quite expensive), pubs, etc.
    August is the Cardiff festival, during the time there are many activities hold in Cardiff Bay.

    Favorite thing: see the harbour and drink a cup (or pint if you like) of something in the Norwegian Church. Pay special attention to the carvings on the wall beside the church.

    Fondest memory: Drinking great coffee in the Coffee Republic shop in one of the main streets (whose name i can't remember.)
