Travel Bureau - Holiday Destinations: Cape Town

Cape Town

A flamboyant city overlooked by one of South Africa's most recognisable features, Table Mountain. Not only does this city have breathtaking views and lots of places to sight-see, it has some of the best golden beaches and a vibrant nightlife.

With a generous selection of hotels to choose from, you won’t be disappointed with what Cape Town has to offer. Why not stay at the One & Only Cape Town hotel, a world class spa situated on the Victoria & Alfred water front with views across Table Mountain, or the Southern Sun Cullinan, a stylish hotel placed between the centre of Cape Town and the water front, only 10 minutes from all of Cape Town’s attractions.

The Victoria & Alfred water front is one of the city's most visited attractions. The water front is ideal for visitors who want a relaxing holiday with lots of shops, entertainment venues, bars and restaurants all in one place.

Take a stroll through the world famous Botanical Garden, located on the Eastern slope of Table Mountain, which showcases South African plants and is home to a variety of animals. Keen hikers can conquer Nursery Ravine or the Skeleton Gorge, the two paths which wind their way up the mountain. If you’re looking for a more relaxed day, why not bring a picnic basket and enjoy the garden at your own leisure. 

Other attractions include; Castle of Good Hope (Oldest Colonial building in South Africa), Green Market Square, Penguins at Boulders Beach and Two Oceans Aquarium.

Yes, the staterooms are beautifully finished, the entertainment is spectacular and there is food to die for, but it was the brilliant design of Celebrity Edge’s public spaces that really took my breath away.
