Hey TP, I'm planning a couple of days trip to Valencia for the next month...does it worth it or should I go to Barcelona? have u got some information about cheap accomodations and nice places to party and to meet people? Tell me everything I should know to spend a cool vacation in Valencia...gracias
I say go to Valencia instead of Barcelona. Valencia is beautiful, further south so its warmer and has a better beaches. I stayed at the Home Hostel, it was a nice little hostel but strict on the quite thing.
I really enjoyed "Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias" (City of the Arts and the Sciences) cool architecture and intersting shows.
If you like seafood then you have to have some Paella (Valencia invented this dish of seafood and rice)...not to mention their oranges. It wasnt as crazy of a party place as Barcelona, but I didnt run into as many tourists. I spent alot of time with locals. Actually, some girls I met from Barcelona talked me into visiting Valencia.
In the end I say Valencia over Barcelona anyday
I have never been to Barcelona, but I really loved Valenica. It is not super touristy, but really beautiful and relaxing. The weather is gorgeous and so are the beaches. I've always had good times in this region.
