Wales is something of a hidden gem. It’s often an afterthought for those moving to the UK, but in reality it offers the most affordable beauty in the country. In a relatively small space it packs in lush green valleys, bustling cities, colourful seaside villages and UNESCO-listed beaches. And in Snowdonia National Park, it offers perhaps the best hiking in Britain.
All in all, it’s a fun, friendly and beautiful country – and you’ll have enough money to spare every month to enjoy it all.
