World Traveling : Cape Town

clifton_beach_capetownIf you take vacation to South Africa then don’t forget to visit Cape Town. Cape Town is the most popular international tourist destination in South Africa. It has nice climate, natural setting, and well-developed infrastructure. The city has several famous natural features that attract tourists, especiallyTable Mountain, which forms a large part of the Table Mountain National Park and is the back end of the City Bowl. Going to the top of the mountain can be achieved either by hiking up, or by taking the Table Mountain Cableway.

Cape Point is known as the dramatic headland at the end of the Cape Peninsula. Many tourists also drive along Chapman’s Peak Drive, a narrow road that links Noordhoek with Hout Bay, for the views of the Atlantic Ocean and nearby mountains. It is possible to either drive or hike up Signal Hill for closer views of the City Bowl and Table Mountain.

Other tourism spot is Cape Town’s beaches like Clifton 4th Beach. Due to the city’s unique geography, it is possible to visit several different beaches in the same day, each with a different setting and atmosphere. Beaches located on the Atlantic Coast tend to have very cold water from the Benguela current which originates from the Southern Ocean.
