Cape Town is one of the world’s top places in which to ”be and see” / holiday / live / work and play, but don’t just take our word for it, see the accolades and awards the city has received …
Cape Town has just scooped The Best City by The Telegraph UK’s readers, for the fourth consecutive year in the Travel Awards 2015-2016, and rated as the third Best Country, after New Zealand and The Maldives
Just been rated The Best Food City in Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards
”From sipping regional rosé on Table Mountain to scarfing hake and fries at Kalk Bay, there’s a breezy simplicity to Cape Town’s iconic eating experiences. To taste the Mother City’s more refined side, book a table at modern food lab the Test Kitchen. If you can’t get a table, the Pot Luck Club across the way at the Old Biscuit Mill serves a fairly amazing tapas-style menu that does something for every taste bud (sweet, salty, even umami); come on the weekend to try some of the best small bites from around the city at the Neighbourgoods Market. End the evening on the cool courtyard at the Gin Bar, where bartenders mix drinks using small-batch spirits flavored with local flora.”
