The area around Machynlleth is one of the many tourist attractions in the area

The travel correspondent said he had received “severe atrocities” when he said people had to go to Wales so they were not prepared to go abroad.

Speaking on ITV’s This Morning earlier this week, Simon Calder mentioned Gwynedd and Ceredigion, as well as Belfast and Edinburgh, as places for people to go.

But she said she also received violence through email and social media.

Go to Wales he said he is trying to get people to return “safely”.

In an article in The Independent, Calder said he responded to hundreds of people who texted and understood serious concerns about the spread of coronavirus, but did not plan to vacation in Wales again.

“For anyone who has the opportunity to have a platform in the community, it’s clear that people have the right to respond as they please and I’m shooting for answers,” he said.

“The magnitude of the negative comments was the largest I’ve ever experienced, completely.”

Calder said he did not want to offend anyone and followed the travel advice, but it is a “fun lesson” on recent problems.

Many areas in southern and northern Wales have local restrictions, where people cannot leave or enter 15 of the 22 Welsh Welsh authorities, as well as the town of Llanelli.

However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson refused to ban people leaving the areas of England with the Covid-19 to go and explore the beautiful Welsh landscape.

This prompted the Welsh government to consider considering ways to relocate immigrants to Wales from as far away as Covid in the UK.

The territories of Gwynedd, Ceredigion, Powys, Anglesey and Pembrokeshire were not established, which meant that the people of England could visit.

Aberystwyth was also mentioned as one of the “simple” places in Wales

Calder Gwynedd – through Machynlleth, Aberystwyth and other seaside towns – as a good idea for a vacation.

He told ITV: “My best bet, you can go to the beautiful town of Machynlleth where you have an outdoor attraction like the Center for Alternative Technology that I just love, and you can definitely go to Aberystwyth and all the shops, Barmouth and Harlech to the beautiful Pwllheli.

“As a result, Wales is easy.”

He also said he “agreed” with the trip to Wales that areas in the country were “good to go”.

Earlier this week, people said they were concerned about the “overcrowding” of visitors after Stacey Solomon of TV posted pictures on a TV show related to a holiday in Rhayader, Powys.
