Cape Town has a long and rich history of hot inner-city bars and nightspots – but one of the hottest ever has got to be Tjing Tjing.
This rooftop bar, situated in the attic of a two century-old building in Longmarket Street, is particularly notable for coming in at number four in the Conde Nast Traveler 10 Hottest New Bars Around the World for 2012.
The only bar in Africa on the list, it rubs shoulders with hip-and-happening establishments in Los Angeles, Bogota, London, Istanbul, Buenos Aires, Berlin, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Beijing.
With its distinctive and eclectic design, featuring old and new elements with strong Japanese influences, a varied tapas menu, cocktails, on-tap craft beer, and a winning musical mix of electronica and indie, it’s not hard to see why Tjing Tjing is popular with Cape Town’s in-the-know revellers and visitors alike.
This cultural village aims to remind us of our origin and serves as the reservoir for African knowledge pertaining to nature and traditions, giving us an opportunity to celebrate who we are through music (wonderful sounds from live bands) or from its’ distinct fineness of cuisine, topped up with African (local) arts and crafts.
The Cape Town Carnival brings South Africans together to celebrate our culture and heritage; people united in the joy of movement, rhythm, colour and creativity. The fact that we can showcase this to the rest of the world and create jobs and promote social cohesion at the same time, makes it even more wonderful.
Hot summer sun, extra long days and warm nights, sun-kissed skin and time to spend with loved ones; summer in Cape Town is the ideal time to get outdoors and enjoy getting closer to the spectacular nature that is within minutes from the bustling city.
!Khwa ttu, the San Education and Culture Centre, 70 km north-west of Cape Town offers you the unique experience of being introduced to the world of the descendants of the first indigenous people of southern Africa.
Rising 669m above sea level, Lion’s Head, a popular hiking spot, is unmistakably part of Cape Town’s skyline. Driving on the N2 into the city centre, you can clearly see why it’s called Lion’s Head – look to your right; Signal Hill forms the rump, the space in between the body of what could be a crouching feline.
