Say ''Mother City''.
First of all, Cape Town is home to the best restaurants in South Africa and the most exquisite wine you have ever tasted and only after this - a cradle of African culture. This reputation was shaped by tourists' interest to this city that flock there for its oldest wine industry in the world.
If you doubt the fact that a wine in Cape Town will entice you more than an exquisite bottle bought at home, then go to Cape Town at least once and you will be back there again and again. Be it a room in cheap hotel in Cape Town or one packed with luxuries we have them all listed with maps and photos at Booked.net.
The fact that Cape Town thrives on wine business is no surprise to the city located at the longest ''Wine Way'' in the world. But this is not enough about city's location as it is set against the dramatic backdrop of Table Mountain and surrounded by vertical cliffs – Devil's Peak and Lion's Head. This geographical tapestry adds to the Mediterranean climate Cape Town has, making winters warm and summers unbearably dry.
Such contrasts in weather shape the natural variety of Cape Town – the most scenic city of South Africa with mountains cascading into the sea. Cape Town may offer you more flora and fauna you could ever imagine with some species close to extinction in other Southern regions, but thriving in Cape Town. Just imagine that on the stony shore of this city with temperatures reaching 26degC can be found a penguin colony, which thrives thanks to the cold Antarctic currents on the west coast near the Cape.
When Francis Drake first saw this wilderness he introduced Cape Town to the world as ''the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth''. Today it is no longer far flung. This is South Africa's most civilized city as well as its second main economic centre and even Africa's third economic hub. It is also known as the regional manufacturing centre in the Western Cape with the primary harbor and airport in the province. This is a city born to be the capital of the Western Cape and the seat of the parliament.
Besides business Cape Town is a perfect place for sightseeing. Attractions include;
- Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, a huge shopping and entertainment area
- Two Oceans Aquarium, a place to know more about sea life
- Robben Island, a location for political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, former South Africa president
And also beaches should be added to this list, as no stay in Cape is complete without a good dose of sunbathing. Thus, a tanning lotion and a swimsuit is what you need to make your skin as bronze as that Halley Berry, famous American actress, earned when she relocated to the Cape for a movie project.
