Cape Town Tourism invites Capetonians to share why they #LoveCapeTown

Social media is helping to drive travel discussions and inform travellers across the world.

Cape Town Tourism is hosting four renowned international travel bloggers in our city and we would like to invite Capetonians to imagine, share and crowd-source their suggestions or ideas as to why they #LoveCapeTown, during a twitter chat on Sunday, July 29, 2012, from 19h00 to 20h00 (SAST).

The twitter chat will inform the itineraries of the bloggers as they discover Cape Town during a week of diverse and unexpected experiences in and around the city.

We will be covering a series of questions around the themes: food and drink, nature and the outdoors, and culture and heritage in Cape Town.
