(Afrikaans: Kaapstad [ˈkɑːpstɐt]; Xhosa: Ikapa) is a coastal city in South Africa. It is the second-most populous urban area in South Africa after Johannesburg. It is also the capital and primate city of the Western Cape province.
I recently had the pleasure of travelling to Cape Town after eleven years. Needless to say the whole experience was in certain ways new for me as I can barely remember much of my previous trip, just that it was super cold and we ate a lot of fish. Luckily for me, only one of those things remained the same – the fish. Truly a place with a charismatic charm it is probably one of the closest cities that could bear resemblance to a 21st century European country.
With its variety of ethnicities both local and foreign, Cape Town manages to encapsulate any by-stander by converting them in to adventure seeking daredevils. Ok, maybe not to such a deep extent, however, it does manage to attract a wide range of tourists around the world seeking to educate themselves on its monumental history and environment.
From its scenic mountain views to the breeze of the fresh ocean air, Cape Town allows anyone to instantly fall in love with its surroundings. I was lucky enough to visit a few of the popular landmarks in the ‘mother city’ and I thought I would share my views (pun intended).
