Cape Town in review
Situated on the southwestern tip of Africa, Cape Town has a variety of influences. Cultivated by the Dutch, British, French, and Indonesians, Cape Town has a collective history that has made it into one of the world’s most unique cities.
When you arrive in Cape Town, you will not be able to avoid seeing Table Mountain. The city’s biggest attraction, Table Mountain is a flat mountaintop that stretches for two miles! If you want to see the top of it, you can either take a cable car, or head up on foot. And, once you’re at the top, there is plenty to do – like camp, hike, and even explore caves!
Because Table Mountain is right in the middle of the city, it is surrounded by Cape Town hotels. In fact, the further you get from the water, the cheaper Cape Town’s hotels become. You may not have a view of the water, but you’ll have a view of one of the world’s most unique sights!
If you want a room with a view, there are plenty of Cape Town hotels that face the South Atlantic Ocean. And as you head towards the water, you will see Wine Desk Waterfront – where you can explore the area’s variety of wineries. And, you can even pair Cape Town’s most popular wines with local chocolates and cheeses!
After a day of wine, you’ll want a good meal. The food in Cape Town is as unique as its history; the cuisine has a melting pot of influences. For a taste of local flavor, opt for the braai – Cape Town’s version of barbecue. And for shoppers there are many stylish and sophisticated shopping malls or for more traditional African items try your hand haggling at the Greenmarket Square Flea Market.
Cape Town setting holds a myriad of wonders, glorious seascapes and panoramic vistas, from the coastal areas to the wine lands. Visit Robben Island to see where Nelson Mandela spent so years of his life or gaze in awe at the ancient rock art in the Karoo Cape Town will be like nowhere else you have ever experienced.
