Many people miss the ‘old city’ of Cape Town with the coloured little houses. Beautiful restaurants at Bloubergstrand, hop-on-hop-off a great adventure, it takes you everywhere. Avoid Cape Point, extremely expensive and packed with tourists (must have a good fitness level).


It's my home city and it has the best of everything: gorgeous beaches, beautiful mountains, stunning scenery and delicious food and drink. It's the perfect place to escape a northern hemisphere winter.
