Cape Town ‘a must see’ when on South African holidays

Individuals who are planning a break to South Africa may choose Cape Town as one of the stops.

This is because those who are going on South Africa holidays may be interested to know it has been named as the world's top destination at the annual TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards.

In 2010 it ranked number 25 in the run down and so it has taken over places such as Sydney, Paris, Rome and New York.

"Cape Town tells an authentic story that captures the hearts and imaginations of a world bombarded with choice and homogeneity," says Mariette du Toit-Helmbold, chief executive officer of Cape Town Tourism.

She added that everyone connected with the location is "honoured" to be given the accolade.

Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and the Langa township were picked out as the best attractions to visit in Cape Town, which is the second most populous city in South Africa.
