This A, B, C to G will give you a good idea of why you should choose Cape Town as your holiday destination.
“A” is for Adventure
And the adventure you will find in Cape Town. Whether you like to discover new things, enjoy a shopping adventure or participate in an extreme outdoor sporting adventure, Cape Town will offer something to enthral you. If your idea of adventure is simply coming to Cape Town on holiday, you will also not be disappointed. Seek out a tailor-made adventure just for you, Cape Town has it all.
“B” is for Beautiful
Cape Town isn’t called the “fairest Cape” for nothing. No matter where you turn to, the stunning Table Mountain (one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature), vast oceans, wide open skies and Paarl mountain range further afield together create the most striking amphitheatre – a beautiful playground from which to pick and choose your vacation pastime.
“C” is for Cool
Cape Town is arguably the coolest city in South Africa. Yes, residents from Johannesburg and Durban may contest this, yet they too flock to Cape Town for the holidays. The vibe is cool, the culture is cool, the people are cool – perfect to create your holiday mood.
“D” is for Drinking
The Cape is where wine was born in South Africa and you can taste many excellent wines made right here, including the Pinotage red wine cultivar, unique to South Africa. However, that’s not all on offer. Craft beer is big news in South Africa and the best brewers’ draughts can be tasted at many a pub, tavern and restaurant. Don’t forget to sample South Africa’s own Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky, which secured a first for South Africa when it was as named the world’s best grain whisky at Whisky Magazine’s annual World Whisky Awards in London in 2013.
“E” is for Eating
Cape Town has restaurants and eateries around every corner and you can tuck into cuisine from all over the world, including some interesting African choices. Fine dining selections abound and Chef Luke Dale Roberts’ The Test Kitchen jumped from its 48th position in 2014 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list to position 28 this year.
“F” is for Fun
Fun can be found around every corner in Cape Town. Whether your idea of vacation fun is a beach holiday, taking a drive to get to know the city and its surrounds, shopping all day, discovering museums, markets and interesting nooks and crannies, you are guaranteed to be having fun.
“G” is for Gee-whiz
The “wow” factor of your Cape Town vacation could be any of a number of vacation activities. Spend a day on a yacht with friends, sailing around Cape Point from the Atlantic to the Indian ocean and back; go deep sea fishing or even shark cage diving; soak up the sun on a topless bus tour of the city and surrounds; ride the Cape Wheel or take the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway for a stupendous view of the Cape Peninsula.
