We will be arriving in your wonderfull country soon, we love cultural and adventure things to do and cant wait to try some of your wines, any tips on what to try in these areas would be appreciative.

Cheers trevNnett

Great to have you in SA!
Cape Town and surrounds have so much to offer, so it might be a good idea to have a bit of a plan. Good idea to rent a car, especially for the winelands.
Re winelands, do visit - Stellenbosch and surroundings, Somerset West (Vergelegen), Franschoek and Hermanus.
Most good farms are in these areas.
In Cape Town - a lot to do - most important to experience this beautiful city.
There are many Money Changing Banks at the airport, also car hire, including Avis, Budget etc.
Please contact if u need any specific advise.
Pierre
Ps Will you be here for the 20/20 series? - if, try to go to Newlands Cricket Ground for a great experience

Travel Tips for Cape Town

We drove from Cape Town to the...

by jill_archer

We drove from Cape Town to the garden route,it was a long drive but well worth it.An excellent network of roads links the garden Route to all major points in the country. Within the region itself the roads between the towns are excellent.Driving is on the left hand side of the road and road signage is in accordance with international codes.

Enjoy some local music

by carteki

Barleycorn started off as a folk music club, but is now a venue for a variety of artists to showcase their music. They meet every Monday at the River Club in Observatory from 8pm. In October the club runs the annual songwriting competition. The rules for this are that the song must never have been performed before. A very pleasant evening to be had by all.
River Club, Liesbeek Parkway, Observatory.

Bargains

by Tommys about Greenmarket Square

Greenmarket square is located in the city centre between Long and Adderley streets. It opens early morning till 4pm during the week and Saturdays till 1pm. Here you can browse through loads of stalls where craftsmen and women sell various artifacts such as jewelery, masks, leather goods, tourist t-shirts, wood and stone sculptures and all sorts of Africanized clothing. Very reasonable pricing too. Any bangles or necklaces Depending on what you purchase. R20 - R30 (£1.50 - £2) for a necklace...to £50 for a pair of boots.

by LilleLene

The easiest and cheapest way to get around in Cape Town is by mini taxi's. You can get on from the street or at the taxi rank. The taxi drives when its filled.
But I wouldn't reccommend the mini taxi's after dark.

by Guardian624

I'm sure there are 5-star places in town, but we were lazy and only went to places near our hotel, the V&A at the Waterfront. There are some really good restaurants in the Mall, just next door. You must try the Greek restaurant there, and two good sushi bars. However, I don't recommend the 'mexican' restaurant down next to the Robben's Island ferry office.
