Just 12 reasons?

According to a recent tweet, Visit Britain said there are 12 great reasons to visit Wales.  Great news of course, but I'm sure there are many more. 

Here are 12 of my own suggestions but please feel free to add some of your own below.

Reasons to visit Wales
1. Spectacular Scenery
2. Rugged coastline ( a new 850 mile round Wales coastal path will be opening soon, allowing you to enjoy every inch of it)
3. Friendly people
4. Caerphilly Castle - one of the biggest in Europe
5. St Fagans National History Musueum - a fantastic open air museum
6. The highest mountain in England and Wales (and a train to take you to the top of it)
7. Visit the locations used to film Doctor Who (which as it happens was the subject of a different Visit Britain blog)
8. Three World Heritage Sites
9. Three National Parks
10. Penderyn Distillery, making fantastic Welsh whisky
11. Great surfing beaches including Rest Bay, Porthcawl
12. The magnificent Millennium Stadium, home to our equally magnificent rugby team

    17. Pen-y-fan, highest peak in the Brecon Beacons (and in Southern Britain) - a fabulous walk
    18. Waterfall country between Pontneddfechan and Ystradfelte. Stunning and a great natural high.
    19. The Gower peninsula.
    20. The people - so beautiful and full of song.

    And another place would be the 'Most Southerly Point in Wales' a Rhoose. Well worth a visit (sic)
