Cape Town has been named the very best city in Africa and the Middle East, as well as the 10th best city globally by Travel + Leisure (T&L) in New York. This, just after US News & World Report ranked the Mother City as the 11th Best Place to Visit globally, saying "the Mother City is unlike any other destination in Africa".
Cape Town prevailed over Beirut in Lebanon and Jerusalem in Israel, who came in second and third places respectively, in the T&L’s World's Best Cities in Africa and the Middle East. Although the global rank is sitting at number 10 according to T&L, the Telegraph Travel Awards' Best City in the World recently named Cape Town number one for the fourth year running!
In Condé Nast’s highly acclaimed Reader’s Choice Awards, the Cape Town was also named as the number one food city in the world!
Many of these awards are decided by experienced travellers who cast their votes based on sights and landmarks, culture, food, friendliness, shopping and overall value.
The US News & World Report said of Cape Town, “"Separated from the rest of the continent by a ring of mountains, Cape Town stands as a glittering, metropolis juxtaposed with one of the world's most breathtaking natural landscapes.
But good looks aren't the only thing Cape Town has going for it. You'll fall in love with this city's khaki-colored beaches, rolling vineyards, sizzling cuisine, thriving nightlife, and, of course, the spectacular Table Mountain."
