Hello to my wonderful people.
So today I will be reminiscing my 5 day tour to Cape Town, which was one of the most bedazzling experiences of mine. Cape Town is one of the World’s most prettiest of places and I absolutely fell involve with it. and you all will too, after reading this whole blog.
So grab a cup of coffee, a glass of juice or just Water, which by the way is really good to drink a lot. so keep your H2O game strong, let’s see what Cape Town has to offer.
South Africa’s weather is very diverse, so you can go to Cape Town any time of the year maybe except July, since its the coldest. Yeah you heard me right South equator works in opposite direction from the rest of the world. so when in November-December, people are covering themselves in coats and cleaning snow away from their lawns and making snowmen, Africans are most probably enjoying their Summer, which is amazing, since its never gets too hot that you feel like you are in desert and it never gets too cold that you have to wear jackets, but you should always have something to drape over you since you never know if its going to start raining soon! But the weather usually stays moderate all over the year. And I can tell you that because I have lived in South Africa, half my life and I love that place, specially the nature and its landscapes.
But let’s talk about Cape Town for this one;
So I went to Cape Town for 5 days and the first amazing thing was the hotel I booked, I was in such a big rush while I was booking my hotel and it was just 2 days before I booked it, but luckily I got a room and that too with the most beautiful ocean view.
This was our view from the Room’s balcony, Do your hear how calming it is. I swear I was out sitting here, looking at the ocean all the damn time.
The hotel was Lagoon Beach, we rented an apartment, so we had to bring our stuff for example water and eggs or bread, but we mostly ate out, so it wasn’t really necessary to bring anything. They did had good service and our time there was pretty good.
What was the first thing we did after arriving there?
V&A (Victoria & Alfred) Waterfront;
We went to V&A Waterfront, Its the biggest mall in Cape Town among many other big malls, but it is definitely the one, with bigger range of products and brands. you can find anything to eat there, a lot of halal points to eat from as well, because most of the food chains are bought by Muslim Indians there, so getting food there isn’t any problem for muslim tourists.
You can spend a whole day here, shopping, eating and just plain simple amusement. Africa is full of colours and music, so you not just get bored there at all.
This is right in front of the mall and Cape wheel. They do helicopter rides here as well, so you can see the whole of Cape Town for about an hour or two hours time. we did not had time to experience that, because there was so many other places we had to see and go to.
We just had pizza’s there and. pizza is always great but one of the African food chains make ahmaaazing pizza’s. its a franchise called Debonairs Pizza. I don’t know what they do that separated their pizza from all the regular ones but trust me when I say they make it good.
Fun Fact:Its called Table mountain because the top is flat like Table, hence Table Mountain…
The next day is although more adventurous. We went to table mountain. and it took us much longer than expected since there were huge queues to get to the top, and we had to wait a long time, but surprisingly no wait was boring and actually we had fun while waiting, if you want to skip the lines or hike you need to book online along time before so you can get to the top quickly.
Its extremely perplexing and I just felt so much involve with the beauty that was in front of me. All that wait felt like nothing once we were at the top. it was just prettiness everywhere.
Okay one thing, don’t eat from the shops and restaurants at top of mountain. they were expensive and did not taste vey well at all. we got back from the mountain almost at 5 PM, so we went to Canal Walk after that, its a beautiful mall and of course we had to shop so we went there and had fish and chips from that place.
The next morning was yet again incredible because we went to almost 3 to 4 different places, so quite an achievement I would say.
So our first stop was Hout Bay, its just a suburb of Cape Town with the most scenic view that I admire totally. You can have a romantic stroll in that valley or you could just drive out. there were these amazing handy crafts and toys made from some wire I have only seen in Africa, we love this things there.
OOOOOOH I have been waiting about this part, our next stop was Boulders Bay Beach , and we saw penguins there. oh yes its gloriously tremendous, I tell you that.
Its looks exactly like you see it in the google pictures, its surreal. after being there I am pretty sure my spirit animal is a Penguin. They are just so small and cute. I wish I could take one home.
Our Third most coolest place was the END OF THE WORLD, lol I mean the south end of the world, its called Cape point. it was pretty awesome because that is the point where Indian and Atlantic Ocean meet and believe me its so alluring. you can clearly see the two oceans meeting because of their colour, one looks blue and the other version is a pretty mixture of blue and green. And Indian Ocean side of the water feels hot whereas Atlantic Ocean has much colder water temperature.
Here are some pictures from Cape point;
And the going a little up top there by cars and chairlifts, you reach a place called Cape point lighthouse.
lol and then we stop by at Muizenburg, its a surfer point because its the Indian ocean part of water, making it good for surfing and swimming.
And Finally we dined at La Rocca, its incredible for Steaks and Salads but they had almost everything and it was good. It is located in Canal Walk.
And since my Cape stories are getting quite longer and I am sure all of your bevarges are finished as well, so I have decided that i will add another part about the rest of my visit in the next post!
Till the Bye Chicas!
