The landscape in the city of Swansea has changed a lot since I was here last, with new buildings popping up everywhere. One of those new buildings that were not here the last time I visited Swansea, is Plantasia. What they have managed to create here in the middle of this vibrant city is short of truly amazing. England has its Eden Project; Scotland has its Amazonia, now Wales has Plantasia. When we went through our selection process here at Top 100 Attractions we looked very closely at value for money. Like a monkey would swing through the tree's in a rain forest, value for money one was just one of the many things that swung it for Plantasia. For some of us, this might be the closest we'd ever get to see a rain forest. But at Plantasia you don't just get to see it! You get to smell it, feel it, and become immersed in it.
