Cool and funky: time to visit Cape Town
That’s the overriding message from this excellent account of how to enjoy the newly transformed Cape Town, over in Condé Nast Traveller.
‘Artists, designers and chefs have taken over once run-down buildings and there’s an upbeat energy on the streets’.
Certainly that’s the impression. Her piece is a lovely read.
Arriving to ‘an instant hit of winter sun. And a city, which is really no more than a small seaside town, with an attitude that’s way more than the sum of its parts’. it’s clear she’s a convert.
The piece lists many places to visit, and relax, and to eat. ‘Hip urban coffee shops selling antique motorbikes alongside freshly roasted beans’; and ‘Restaurants that out of the blue join the ranks of the world’s Top 100.’
And the piece describes the city as ‘a big old cultural stewpot’, which seems a nice and apt summary.
‘It’s buzzing, which is why stars such as Lily Allen choose to make their music videos in Cape Town’, and ‘why this year The New York Times named the city its top holiday destination’.
‘Just 10 years ago’, says Condé Nast Traveller, the centre was ‘dead’. Today, everywhere’s vibrant, especially Woodstock, the city’s ‘most freshly transformed’ district.
And, hey, why not pencil in that visit?
