Cape Town has made the list of World Best Cities on the 2018 Worlds Best campaign by Travel and Leisure. This comes as no surprise to us but we thought we would remind you why Cape Town is incredibly epic.

International online travel site, Travel and Leisure’s Worlds Best campaign began in 2017 and tallied votes from their readers from 6 November 2017 – 5 March 2018. The world has spoken and made it clear, the Mother City is a favourite international travel destination. The voting outcome placed Cape Town at 12 out of the 15 best cities in the world, alongside one of the art capitals of the world, Florence.

Our beautiful home town scored 87.63 out of a 100 so here’s some of the most outstanding aspects of our precious Mother City that surely earned us our spot…

The towering and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Table Mountain is Cape Town’s pride and joy..
