Welsh culture is steeped in music, and the inhabitants famously know how to party. The major cities of Swansea and Cardiff are at the centre of Welsh nightlife, offering clubs and pubs for late nighters.
For something distinctive to this land, listen to a Welsh choir. These vary from small church choirs to massive male voice choirs on tour at the UK's biggest music venues. You might also find some ad hoc singing at one of Wales' legendary rugby matches.
For opera buffs, the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff is the place to go, but music isn't confined to the cities; the biggest music event of the year is the Eisteddfod, a celebration of Welsh music, which moves to a different destination every year. Folk music fans should head to the Green Man Festival in Hay-on-Wye, while the Brecon annual festival promotes jazz.
Rural nightlife traditionally focuses around the old-fashioned village pub, with local beer and good hearty food.
