Glasgow Travel Tips & Suggestions

The nightlife is great, but I think Glasgow is a very industrial city -- not so beautiful as other cities in Scotland. I didn't like it at all, and I do not recommend visiting the city if you're looking for something more than parties, pubs, and discos.
Glasgow is the best!
All the galleries and museums have no admission charges. There are lots of bars that have no charges for student music scenes at night and in the afternoon. This is a student city paradise. It is also really friendly -- nobody talks to you in Germany like they do in Glasgow.
Glasgow is simply great. The west end with Botanic Gardens and Glasgow University, the east end with the old town and the Cathedral and the City Center for shopping, beautiful greens... A very friendly people and the Week of the World Pipe Band Championships in August.

Glasgow is a great city with plenty to do both during the day and at night. The vast majority of museums are free, the shopping is second only to London, and the people are very friendly and helpful. At night, pubs and clubs along Sauchiehall Street offer cheap drink promos and often free entry during the week. The west end is beautiful, with great parks, architecture and more sophisticated nightlife. Go if and when you get the chance.
Glasgow is a very friendly city, if you stay in the right parts! I drifted a bit away from the main central area and the reception wasn't so friendly at all! But I would definitely return to Glasgow as I found that after my visit there was still so much I wanted to do and so many nice people I would love to meet again!
The Mitchell Library has a books cafe and great exhibitions (the current one is Italian artists), and also it offers 60 free internet computers. It's near all the West End hostels in the Berkeley /Charing Cross district.
Nightclubs in and around Charing Cross are generally free Monday through Wednesday with great drink promos. You need pretty much a whole day to enjoy the Burrell art collection which boasts to be the world's 3rd biggest after the Frick and the Guggenheim. It certainly is just as impressive but costs nothing to enter.
Really great nightlife!
The west end near the university is magnificent.
