Cape Town see + do

The exquisite beauty of the Cape combined with the local passion for food and wine means that visitors often combine all three in their sightseeing. Meanwhile, adrenaline junkies find lots to do, either up Table Mountain (hiking, rappelling, hang gliding) or in the sea (kite boarding, fishing, diving, or sailing). Beach lovers have a choice of relatively empty, unspoiled strands. Cape Town has a thriving art scene, with galleries scattered throughout the city, and shoppers can spend days exploring the open-air markets and shops in the city center.
