About Cape town
Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town (population: 4.17 million) leaves you transfixed with its spectacular vistas. Even the locals find it difficult to tear their eyes away from the breathtaking natural beauty of the Table Mountains. It might take a while, but once you get over the mountains and the natural beauty, you realize that the city also has an equally beautiful culture, one that is just waiting to be explored.
A Beautiful Escape
Pristine white beaches such as the Boulders Breach are dotted with granite boulders that offer the perfect spots for sunbathing. The proximity to natural beauty brings you closer to all kinds of experiences, from watching whales from a restaurant in False Bay to checking out the Twelve Apostles in one of the most picturesque drives on the planet, from spotting wildebeest and zebra on the slopes of the Table Mountain to meeting baboons close to Cape Point. And despite all that wildlife and natural beauty, Cape Town also presents a fascinating urban vibe in the form of world-class restaurants, outstanding art galleries, chic bars and some of the most innovative designers and artists on the planet. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, District Six Museum, Cape of Good Hope and the South African National Gallery are other highlights in the city.
How to Get Around
An ideal way of getting around the city is to use the city sightseeing bus, which offers excellent hop-on-hop-off tours. Other modes of transportation include metro-rails, taxis and buses. That said, renting your own car is the ideal way of getting around Cape Town.
