The Heart Beat Of the Mother City - Cape Town city centre

Cape Town’s city centre is small compared to any other city centre – especially considering it’s one of the main cities in South Africa and the country’s parliament capital. But small often equals charming, and the city centre certainly has enough charm to have you visiting her on a regular basis. Cape Town is fast becoming dominated by a crowd of innovative and imaginative young adults and funky bars, night clubs and spectacular restuarants spring up constantly – so if you’re into the social scene there’s more than enough to keep you occupied. There’s also plenty of backpackers, interesting museums and a happening art scene for the more civilised. And shop-till-you-droppers will have no problem running their credit cards into the ground what with all the yummy (often distinctly African) wares on offer.

Backpackers Heaven

The backpackers in Cape Town city centre are cool places to hang out if you enjoy city life. If you're after quieter, greener areas with less hecticness, however, we suggest you stay elsewhere in Cape Town.
