table mountain May 26, 2011
this is one of the best experience and a definite something to do when in south Africa cape town. you will see the mountain from far and it is amazing , looks like a table and sometimes the fog covers it like a table cloth.

going up in a rotating cable car allows you to see the exquisite views. on top it is just awesome you can see so far. just amazing and a unforgettable experience

Whether your staying for a couple of days or a couple of weeks, try and make the most out of the beautiful Cape Town sights. Here is my tope ten.

1. Table Mountain - The only place ni the world where you can see two oceans at the same time. The mountain gets its name from the fact that the top of it is as flat as a table and when the fog settles on it in certain times of the year it looks like a table cloth.

2. Chapmans Peak Drive - one of the worlds most beautiful drives. For 10km the road is carved into the mountain on one side, dropping hundreds of metres into the oean on the other. Plenty of viewpoints to stop at along the way and only a short drive into Hout Bay

3. Whale Watching between Simons Town and Fish Hoek is a must is your there in the right season. Just find a good view of the sea and take a pair of binos

4. V&A Waterfront - This shopping centre is filled with all the traditional South African chain Stores. Cape Union Mart is a great place to go and pick up some essential travel clothing and accessories.....but if your more into labels check out the Young Designers Emporium. This store funds up and coming designers and sells limited amounts of each item. No one at home will have on what u do

5. The Winelands - not only are the Winelands a good place to go and have a relatively inexpensive meal and wine tasting session but they also provide beautiful scenery. The best in my opinion is Spier, southwest of Stellenbosch. For R6 you'll get to taste the wine and you can also pet cheetahs in the sanctuary they have there and visit their restaurant moyo which is built in treehouses and consists of traditional South African cuisine.

6. Two Oceans Aquarium - Situated on the waterfront, Two Oceans is the only aquarium where you can see the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic meet. Full of great fish.....It is a must!

7. Robben Island - Visit the legendary island by catamaran. It usually takes 30 minutes but is well worth the journey with exhibitions and tours of the maximum security prison

8. Canal Walk Shopping Centre - This place is huge and really quite spectacular.... For all you shopping needs or even if you just want a coffee from Mugg and Bean

9. Hermanus - 112km from Cape Town centre, this is an ideal place to whale watch. Also if you walk along the beach you should come to a fish restaurant that is carved into the side of a cliff.... Really breathtaking views but dont sit too near the front in bad weather as the tide splashes in. However they do have outdoor heaters to keep you warm.

10. Red Herring Pub - If you have travelled towards Chappy's Peak, the Red Herring pub and Skabangers are a perfect place to sit in the sun with a pizza and beer whilst looking out over the beach. Studenty atmosphere but also family friendly. Dogs and animals are welcome and it is a particualrly good place to go if there is a Springbok match on!

Hope this gave you all some ideas. And enjoy Cape Town
