50 amazing things to do in Cape Town

Upon arriving in Cape Town and meeting new people, the question that, quite obviously, popped up the most frequently was 'how long are you spending here?' and so too, was the surprise when we replied with 'six weeks'.

'But...are you sure there's enough to actually do in Cape Town for that amount of time? Won't you get bored?'

At the beginning of our trip, to be honest, both my friend and I were a little unsure. Maybe there wasn't enough to do here? Maybe we would end up getting bored and wishing we'd moved on to somewhere else a little quicker?

Hmm, yeah, after three weeks, we've quickly come to discover that if anything, we could spend even more time here because, let's face it, this place is pretty epic. Not only is it completely and utterly stunning, with views of Table Mountain never ever getting old, but the city is also rich in culture and history, dripping with fantastic places to eat and drink and bursting with activities to and places to see.
