SOUTH AFRICA: Cape Town on top of tourist bucket list for 2019
Cape Town top of tourist bucket list in 2019
The recent wave of international awards and accolades has secured Cape Town’s position as one of the world’s most popular cities and justifies its global ranking as the top tourist destination. In addition to being voted as the World Design Capital and being acknowledged by both the “New York Times” and Britain’s “The Guardian” as the top holiday destination this year, the city of Cape Town in South Africa has also been recognised as the premier destination on the Conde Nast Traveller Gold List and achieved second and third position in the Travel and Leisure list and the Lonely Planet Guide respectively.
The mother city of Cape Town is also receiving high praise from the Far East, where two top Chinese publications, namely “Voyage” and “MICE China Magazine” voted Cape Town as the Best International Destination of the year and the Best Luxury Travel Destination respectively.
Last year marked a welcome increase in the number of local and international tourists who visited Cape Town and all performance indicators from last November and December point towards a record summer season in 2019. Cape Town is already the most visited destination in Africa and boasts a number of the Country’s top tourist destinations, many within walking distance from The Taj Cape Town Hotel
It is no secret that Cape Town is spoilt with a great natural beauty but many of the City’s top attractions are found away from the gorgeous beaches and mountainous skyline. Walking tours to all the nearby attractions are proving especially popular with our guests; in particular, the Prisoner to President Tour which traces Nelson Mandela’s journey from incarceration on Robben Island to the Country’s highest office. Cape Town’s tenure as the World Design Capital has strongly contributed towards the City securing the top positions on five prestigious travel lists.
Cape Town’s many unique attractions. “As one of the seven new wonders of the world, it is impossible not to be awed by Table Mountain’s impressive profile, but there are numerous other unique experiences and cultural attractions in the city centre and surrounds that validate Cape Town’s position as 2019’s must-see destination.”
