There are several good spots to go shopping. Whether you choose to stroll through a fleamarket or around a modern department store, there are many possibilities to satisfy your need.
Fondest memory: The Victoria Wharf is a shopper's paradise with something for everyone. The shops stay open 'till late each night. Outside, you'll find many pubs and restaurants.
Canal Walk the biggest shop pping centre in the southern hemisphere, is one part of CENTURY CITY. You can reach Century City in about 20 minutes by car/bus from the city centre.
There you can also find an adventure park where you can have lots of fun! So you'll easily spend the whole day at Century City!
Favorite thing: V&A Waterfront is a succesfull blend of harbour activities and shopping and dining areas. Here you will find a wide variety of shops and good restaurants with the majestic Table Mountain always on the backdrop. It's best to take a taxi to get there, as it's a long, dull walk from the centre of town and you wouldn't want to walk all the way back in the dark.
Aii... what can i say about the Waterfront!!.. Its a touristic place, crowded of shops and restaurants. There is the Aquarium (very nice) where you can see the famous sharks! Try to go at 3pm, is their lunch time!! Great! There is also a little African Market where you can buy the "souvenirs".
From there, you can go to different cruises around the bay. From the Clock Tower depart the cruises to Robben Island (the trip takes 3 hours, the last one at 2pm.)
Favorite thing: The Victoria and Albert waterfront is a great place to eat, drink and shop. Everything from handicrafts to very expensive shops. Excellent Forester's draft at the Brewery Pub! Great views of table mountain and the 'tablecloth'.
spend some time shopping, strolling, dining here at the quaint Victoria and Alfred Waterfront (my favorite haunt here).
There is a dazzling choice of restaurants. My favorites are:
Morton's of Chicago for good old American food
Sea Palace for Chinese cuisine).
Hard Rock Cafe
There are also shops of every description... from the department stores of Eggar's and Woolworth's to the posh boutiques of Guess, Kookai, Morgan etc. Multi-screen cinemas and bars are also found here.
Fondest memory: The South African Rand is considered weak if you're comparing it with the world's major currencies... so let's just say that you can buy most things here at a steal. Some of the South African souvenirs are really worth buying.
Favorite thing: At the moment the travelling cows are visiting our lovely city and they are on exhibition all over the waterfront.
Favorite thing: The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is developed as one of Cape Town's tourist attractions with lots of hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. But it is also a large busy working harbour.
In Cpae Town the 'Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.´You can buy there everything.
