It's not a city - it's a small village.

There's a visitor centre there, a train station, a few shops, and a petrol station.

I've been past it many times - although since they extended the A55 all the way to Holyhead I don't pass it much now.

This town in wales has long been thought to be the longest place name in the world but there is one that dwarfs this one. It is long version of the Thai name for Bangkok, called "Krungthep". The long form is

Krungthepmahanakonbowornratanakosinmahintarayudyayamahadiloponoparatanarajthaniburiromudomrajniwesmahasatarnamornpimarnavatarsatitsakattiyavisanukamphrasit

Don't ask me how to pronounce it. I probably couldn't. The Thai language (Balia Sanskrit) has 44 vowels.

Terry Groff, I had the honor of visiting Bangkok 2 years ago and found this out. Thai's are always using short names for things though ;)

The Welsh Village was featured on Bing.com (UK) a while ago.

Yes .. it's not that difficult after a bit of practice .. nothing like a true welsh-speaker would say it though!!
