The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront was created in 1860 and since then has been a massive part of Cape Town’s history. Used as the city’s main port, the V&A Waterfront is very close to the people of Cape Town and is used for a whole variety of activities from fishing to tourism to transportation. Located on the edge of the city and only 1km away from the Cape Town’s main stadium, the W&A Waterfront is easy to get to and has much to offer tourists with a variety of shops, restaurants and tours.
Situated to the south of Cape Town is Table Mountain National Park, standing at a staggering 3,558ft tall, Table Mountain is hard to miss while visiting Cape Town. Table Mountain was 1st climbed by Antonio De Saldanha in 1503 and since then has been climbed by thousands of tourists and locals alike, each year. But if you feel that walking up the mountain is a bit of a stretch then you always have the option of taking the Cableway which will take visitors to the top of the mountain top.
District 6 Museum is only a small museum, however it covers one of Cape Town’s most controversial and shocking part of Cape Town’s history. The District 6 Museum educates tourists and even locals about South Africa’s dark past and the treatment of nonwhite community. The Museum is a reminder that South Africa has come a long way from where it once was in the pre1994. It has been described as a “powerful” and “emotional” for those visiting and is well worth a visit while on holiday in Cape Town.
