Cape Town questions...

by fashionapple

I am planning trip to Cape Town in mid of July. Just got few questions, would appreciate your replies:

(1) How much should i expect to pay in a clean three star accomodation? Some one quoted me R500 per night. Is it expensive?

(2) How much is conversion rate...US dollar to Rand?

(3) Would it be very very cold in mid of July or i can expect some nice days?

(4) I plan to stay in sea point area. Is it good safe location? Is it very far from table mountain?

Re: Cape Town questions...

Trying to predict the weather can be difficult because of local on the day variations.
This information should be used as a guide only.
Here is the average weather for Cape Town for this time of year.
Enjoy your holiday.

July.
High 61f / 16c
Low 44f / 7c
Rain 3.27in / 83.0mm
Sun % 27

Depends on what weather you are used too. In England, 61f would be considered a heatwave.

Hi,
1) R500 sound reasonable, I would sugegst a B&B or guesthouse which will probably cost around the same or slightly cheaper given you will be there in the low season even though it will be school holidays.
2) The rand is very volatile but if you work on ca R8/US$ you'll be OK.
3) With global warming who knows what the weather will be. Normally it is cold and rainy in CT in July, but not as cold as Europe for example. Day temps probably around 15 to 20 degrees C or.
4)Sea Point has improved a lot over the past year or so but still would not walk around too much at night by myself (as in most other big cities in the world). There are many retsaurants etc around and you will be quite close to the waterfront development (a short taxi ride or 30 min walk during day time). Table Mountain is a 5-10 minute taxi ride away.

Re: Cape Town questions...

by fashionapple

Thank you so much friends for your very helpful replies. I highly appreciate that.

Few more questions:


(1) Is it safe to go out alone at night for say meals, sight seeing or clubbing? Or better not to go out at night. I am confused here actually. I am staying in Sea Point area so at night i will go for meals etc in this particular area. Kindly suggest accordingly.


(2) How much should i pay from Cape Town airport to Sea point? Should i take taxi? Any particular taxi company you recommend to use? My hotel offers airport pick up for R250. Is it too much? Is it better to do it on my own or ask hotel? Keep in mind i would be arriving Cape Town after 13 hours long flight.


(3) Which is best place to get cheap souviners, clothes etc in Cape Town?


(4) Is it a good idea to take tour bus ( with hop on hop off options ) for sight seeing or better do it on own?


(5) What are "must see places for sight seeing" n "must do things" that you recommend me during six day stay in Cape Town?

Thanks again for all the help

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Do not miss, under no...

by africanee

Do not miss, under no circumstances, to go up Table Mountain. This means: whenever there is no table cloth visible and it is not windy, seize your chance and take either the cable car (stunning) or hike up.
And if it is sunset time, you´re lucky. This view is amazing! I wouldn´t have missed it for the world.

If you´re not sure whether the cable car is running, please call 4248181.
Have a look at my travelogue, please. The Table Mountain. Specially the sunset!
It was wonderful!!!

Rock climbing

by grets

Rock climbing is available from the top of Table Mountain, on the 500 metre almost sheer cliff. No thanks. Even though I did my fair share of rock climbing as a youngster, I don't think I would have attempted this one!

You must go visit a township....

by LilleLene

You must go visit a township. It might be hard to see the conditions that many south africans live under, but its reality...and you havn't seen Cape Town, if you have only visited the beautiful areas.
You get a special feeling walking through a township, people are happy and friendly even though they are very poor. You might look at things different after visiting a township.
But be careful!!!! It can be dangerous, if you don't know the people from the township.
Don't go by yourself. Get a local to show you around or take one of the guided tours.
And stay away from from the townships after dark.

Training it from Cape Town to Simon's Town

by Jenniflower

Cape Town has a train service that runs from the centre of Cape Town all the way to Simon's Town, running along the coast from Muizenburg, through St James, Kalk Bay, Clovelly, Fish Hoek and Glencairn through to Simon's Town.

I have done this trip MANY times, for both work and social purposes. It isnt that frequent a service if you compare it to other First World country train services, but is excellent if you compare it to other African services.

I always try and sit in a carriage that is already occupied. Be aware as there have been criminal activities on these trains, when you get 'chancers' that will try and rob you etc. I never had anything happen to me in many years, but things do happen. Dont look like a tourist, hide your expensive camera and watch and just be alert. Having said that I have had many a superb trip on this service and always enjoyed it.

Metrorail is the company that runs it and it's core business is to provide rail services that meet the country needs for affordable public transport. Security has always been a huge challenge to them as Cape Town has a high unemployment rate.

Lovely restaurant in a nice location

by dejavu2gb about Belthazar

Welcome to the largest wine bar in the world... Belthazars.
This is a very stylish restaurant conveniently located in the V&A Waterfront.
We spent a saturday afternoon at the restaurant with magnificent food, and great wine. The atmosphere is really great and with top notch service too. I had a nice large fillet steak with a gorgeous Pepper Sauce.
The food was of very good quality and I will be sure to return there on my next visit to Cape Town.
