Cape Town is the second most populated city in South Africa, and certainly the one with most going on! For those staying in Cape Town city centre
, a trip to Greenmarket Square for the city's best-loved flea market is an absolute must. Head to Long Street, the hub of Cape Town's restaurants and nightlife, for the Pan African market, where you can spend hours exploring stalls full of curios and authentic souvenirs from all over Africa.
A little further afield, you will find Constantia
, one of the oldest suburbs of Cape Town. This area is famed for its wine and fine restaurants, and is certainly a pleasant and subdued break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Of course, the beaches around Cape Town are superb. Of special mention are Bikini Bay, situated at Gordon's Bay, as well as Camps Bay
, and the affluent Clifton - home to Millionaire's Row, with its swanky celeb mansions. A spot of sunbathing, interspersed with a little people-watching, is a perfect way to enjoy the fantastic Cape Town beaches!
