August-September 2018


Breathtaking views, mouth-watering food, fine wine, a mélange of cultures and even some adorable penguins: Cape Town in South Africa truly does have it all. CECILIA YEE of Flight Centre fills us in on the essentials.

O n one side of Cape Town lies the City Bowl, an amphitheatre-shaped area where Table Mountain spills down to the Atlantic Ocean – a majestic sight that will simply take your breath away. On the other side of Table Mountain are the Cape Flats, low-lying flatlands that are dominated by the city’s rural township communities. The glaringly obvious contrast between these two places will immediately hit you hard, strikingly demonstrating that there is far more to Cape Town beyond its stunning landscapes and delicious cuisine.

What to do Learning more about Cape Town’s history really does give you a greater appreciation of the city. District 6 Museum chronicles one of the darker episodes in the city’s apartheid past; sign up for a tour here and listen to a former resident share their stories. Be warned – few visitors leave the museum without feeling deeply moved by this poignant experience. Table Mountain is probably Cape Town’s most iconic landmark, and there are a number of routes you can take to hike to its summit. If you have the time (and energy), consider hiking
