Rediscovering Cape Town

One of the world’s most beautiful cities, Cape Town has long been a magnet to travellers, lured by its iconic mountain, crinkle-cut coast and sandy beaches — not to mention its outdoor lifestyle, vibrant foodie scene and close proximity to other Cape highlights like the Winelands and Garden Route. In many ways, it’s a well-known destination that slots comfortably into most itineraries.

But there’s another side to Cape Town: the city’s secret spaces, the new and imaginative experiences and the lesser-known highlights. A fresh narrative is being written as the Mother City continues to evolve. In this feature we venture deeper and more intimately into Cape Town, to explore it from a local’s perspective. There’s more to the place than you might have imagined.
