Welcome to Cape Town - The best city in the world!


By Lucy Corne, Writer

"Visiting Cape Town changed my life. A few years after that first visit, I moved to the Mother City – the only place that could scratch those perpetually itchy feet. It's tough to pinpoint exactly what makes this my favourite city on the planet. There are more restaurant options than there are days in the year to dine in them; outdoor activities cover everything from sun-worshipping to hiking, biking and braving the icy surf; colourful festivals introduce visitors to Cape Town's celebratory lifestyle and behind it all is the magnificently beautiful flat-topped Table Mountain."
