Cape Town’s done it again – but this time, instead of praising our natural beauty (hello gorgeous beaches and scenic drives) and amazing food, the world is looking to our art. Yesterday, well-known software, data and media company Bloomberg released a list of the 20 top destinations for travellers in 2017 and nestled amongst gems such as St Barthelemy, Turks and Caicos, Finland and Myanmar, is none other than the Mother City.
Bloomberg reports that the city will become ‘the hottest art capital in the Southern Hemisphere’ with the opening of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) in September. The museum will be dedicated to modern art from the African continent and the largest one of its kind.
What are your thoughts on the Mother City as the newest must-visit art destination? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook.
