Cape Town Travel Guide

Hike or take the cableway to the top of Table Mountain on one of Cape Town’s perfect-weather days, look out over the confluence of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans at the very southern tip of the African continent, and you’ll see why Cape Town and the surrounding area is South Africa’s most popular destination. Take your pick of beach activities, from lounging on languid Camps Bay to penguin-spotting on Boulders Beach in Simon's Town. Going back to 1666, the Castle of Good Hope is South Africa's oldest building, covering the nation's Dutch history. Robbins Island held political prisoners starting in the 17th century, but most visitors know it as Nelson Mandela's home for 18 years. (Ex-prisoners often give the tours, answering questions about life on the island.) Over the past decade, wine-tasting in the romantic Cape Winelands has become a popular day trip for adults, while kids enjoy the brightly painted Bo-Kaap Muslim quarter or the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. Every possible budget is catered to in Cape Town, from central boutique hostels to luxurious ocean view hotels.

What's the best food in Cape Town?
Curry Meat Foam - South African curry minced meat is like the American meat stuffing cake and the British potato meat pie. It is the most traditional dish. It is a main lunch for locals to order a squid filled with sweet prawns, fresh fish and squid squid with lemon garlic butter, followed by a cold beer or refreshing white wine. Be sure to try the fish. When Cape Town people are grilling in the wild, they tend to apply a thick layer of apricot jam, sprinkle with a little lemon juice and garlic, and sweet potatoes and homemade bread with butter. Three-legged iron stew, this is a fashionable food that is suitable for modern life needs. There are also many choices for breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, grilled salmon and squid, fried corn, pancakes, espresso and coffee, toast and jam, porridge and cheese, etc. There are.
