Wales 'is an all-weather destination'
Consumers who have booked rooms in hotels in Wales have been advised the country can be enjoyed in all conditions.
According to Visit Wales, there are plenty of activities on offer to tourists in the event of the weather turning sour.
For instance, it said Wales offers lots of fantastic mountain biking trails, which are best enjoyed in muddy conditions.
In addition, Visit Wales noted that Cardiff hosts a new all-weather white water rafting centre, while tourists can also check out relics of the Welsh mining industry.
The organisation added that if it is sunny, people staying in hotels in Wales may wish to visit its "unspoilt" and "uncrowded" beaches.
A spokeswoman said: "They are ideal for visitors who want to relax and enjoy the views in an idyllic sandy bay."
She added that visitors could also hike around the coastal paths and spot nature and wildlife during their walk.
This comes after research by YouGov found that nearly three-quarters of adults in Wales believe the country's beaches are either good or excellent.
