"I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming."

Therese Yeboah

What You Can Expect from Life in Cardiff

In the past two decades, Cardiff has developed as a city beyond recognition. There was a time when the Cardiff Bay area was tired, worn out, and quite frankly a place to avoid. Nowadays, it is the life and soul of the city. The restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and family-friendly attractions make it the place to be, day or night. In the city center, the Millennium Stadium on match day provides an atmosphere that is second to none. The city has a high proportion of students, including international students at the numerous universities. The Roath Park area tends to provide living accommodation for many of them, along with the various university halls throughout the city. Cheaper areas to live include Splott, where rows of terraced houses are the center of vibrant, multicultural communities. The area is also within walking distance of the city center. Public transportation provision is good, with regular buses and trains and an airport nearby.
