More prestige and friendly favour for one of South Africa’s most popular #filmproduction cities: #CapeTown has added another feather to its tourism cap by being named the Ninth Best City in the World.
According to CNN, Travel & Leisure website’s reader survey included Cape Town in the top 10 best international cities, keeping company with popular and prestigious international destinations Rome, Bangkok, Kyoto and Jerusalem, amongst others.
Recapping the survey, CNN calls Cape Town “cutting-edge, artsy and buzzing with energy.”
“There are few places in the world where you can exercise your shopping skills (Woodstock’s Neighbourgoods Market on Saturday mornings is the place to go for Afrikaans jerky and silk-and-leather sandals), take off on a safari, or enjoy world-famous cuisine all in one weekend.
Atlantic-facing Clifton Beaches are the South Beach of South Africa, known for enormous natural boulders tumbling into the sea, pristine sunbathing conditions and the capoeira dancers that entertain crowds with fire and African drums on Monday nights.”
