Regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town is a must-see idyllic destination. The striking mountainous backdrop to this South African city is a feast for the eyes. The geographical splendour of Cape Town matched with its lively city scene captivates people from all corners of the globe.
During the day, experience the infamous Table Mountain for yourself by taking a relaxing scenic ride up and down the cableway, or if you’re feeling adventurous, by hiking up to the summit. If you're up for a real challenge, abseil down Table Mountain, the world’s tallest at 112 metres high which will give you a guaranteed adrenaline rush! Take a trip down to Cape Point on Cape Peninsula for another stunning view, and then why not cool off in the waters of Cape Town's white-sand beaches. When you head inner city, be amazed by Cape Town's picturesque architecture in Cape Dutch style, a combination of French, Germanic and Netherlander architectural tradition.
If you still have time, have a romantic stroll with your special someone down the colourful Cape Malay Bo-Kaap cobblestone streets. Because the city centre is relatively compact, Cape Town can be experienced largely on foot making it easy to absorb the city for what it is.
If culture is your cup of tea, then the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is an ideal destination in the historic heart of Cape Town's working harbour. Set against the rugged mountain and sea backdrop, the historic waterfront is South Africa's most visited destination as a shopping and entertainment haven on the marina. Fill up at one of Cape Town's renowned restaurants in the city, regarded as some of the finest in South Africa. After a day of sight-seeing and shopping, unwind at one of the inner city night clubs and bars, such as around the popular and trendy top end of Long Street.
If you happen to be in Cape Town on New Year Day, stay around for their famous 'Second New Years' Minstrel Carnival on the second day of the month where minstrels in colourful costumes adorn the streets to a background of vibrant music. For those who love sport, Cape Town is a great location to satisfy your interests, being a host of major national and international sporting events in rugby, hockey, cricket, and many others. 2010 will even see Cape Town hosting the FIFA World Cup.
