Cape Town: a City Like no Other in Africa
Cape Town is not Johannesburg. Cape Town prides of its past and, at the same time, it is a tourist city as no other in South Africa. It is preferred for its harbor, its natural attractions such as the Table Mountain and the great beaches. Its modern life style and its multicultural population attracts many immigrants and expats. Also, it is a capital for great shopping, visitors will be amazed at the variety of upscale stores around. A great start for shoppers is the mall located in Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Kids will be amazed at the variety of marine species that they can admire at the Two Oceans Aquarium. If visiting Cape Town in Spring, don't miss the whales approaching the coast to breed. However, visits can catch an eye of the Killer Whale and the Bryde`s Whales all year round.
But Cape Town is not all about beaches, mountains and sunshine, as it hosts a vibrant cultural and art life. Architects have the opportunity to admire several buildings in the Cape Dutch style which can be found in the Central Business District. If a theatre fan, head to Artscape Theatre Centre. Travelers should't miss Cape Town Minstrel Carnival, as they will be dazzled at the colored customs, the music and the dances of this huge parade. This is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
