Cape Town Introduction
The Mother City, as the name suggests, has a sense of maternal magnificence surrounding her. She looks after, entertains and remains in the minds and memories of each and every one of her thousands of annual visitors. The City Bowl is Cape Town’s epicenter of multicultural activities, people, and hidden treasures and is a great bedrock from which to start your adventures.
The Tabletop and 8th Wonder of the World is her background as she looks out over Table Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It is this the blend of urban, cosmopolitan and scenic environments that are very evidently the heartbeat of this city. Long Street, the main artery, is a great point to begin exploring on foot. A web of side streets and walkways navigate you through a wide array of art galleries, shops, and restaurants. Greenmarket Square is another must-see if you’re in the inner city. A bit of cobblestoned sunshine where you can experience the most touristy side of Cape Town. Eateries and cafes surround this ‘Pan-African’ market and its surrounds, where passers-by can get anything from carved African sculptures to the best coffee in town. If you’re lucky, the gumboot dancers might even be out entertaining the locals and tourists alike.
If you are keen for something just as diverse yet a different kind of experience, head up to Bree Street. This is where the young hip and ‘influential’ hang out. Local fynbos Gin? German Wurst? A bacon-only joint? Bree’s got it! There is a great variety of cafés, bars, and restaurants to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters and shyest of taste buds. This is also where Cape Town’s nightlife starts to take form as the sun goes down. With everything only a hop skip and an Uber away, you can opt for a bogey in Bree, a laugh on Long and end up barefoot on Kloof street. This is Cape Town and there is always an open table waiting right around the corner to show holiday visitors a good time.
Cape Town’s occupants have the upper hand when it comes to commuting about. There is a range of transport options on nearly every street for locals and visitors and your accommodation will most likely be close to one of these options. These include the Metrorail train, Myciti busses, and taxis. If you’re not a fan of local transport, there’s always an Uber around the corner waiting for you.
Cape Town hosts many people from around the world and its locals. The city is very busy during business hours and gets lively after working hours. Although the city is busy and there are always people and security cars around, we always advise guests to be vigilant and follow the safety instructions provided by your holiday accommodation.
