People booking flights to Cape Town may be pleased to hear that it has been described as “one of the most beautiful cities in the world” by a travel journalist.

Anyone who has decided to book flights to Cape Town before the World Cup could be interested in one journalist’s experiences in the city.

Writing for Wales Online, Clare Farley explained that a visit to the city mixes “a dramatic Atlantic seaboard and wonderful Table Mountain, with excellent locally-produced food and wine”.

She recommended that tourists head to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, where they will find a host of restaurants and shops, as well as an aquarium.

Other must-visit sights are the Old Castle and District Six Museum, Ms Farley stated.

A day trip to Cape Point should also form an essential part of any holidays to South Africa, because travellers can see “spectacular scenery” and wildlife such as baboons, antelope, ostrich and dolphins, she enthused.
