Cape Town Tourism invites Capetonians to share why they #LoveCapeTown
With a passion for travel, tourism and social media, Cape Town is the quintessential backdrop for Media Developer Leon Jamarie and his cape adventures.
With the City as his canvass Leon paints the town red covering a range of events and activities in the peninsular while staying true to the traditional culture the mother city offers it’s children,
Originally from Durban, Leon is still an accidental tourist in the city he now calls home and as such is on the line between resident and local tourist able to provide inside knowledge and flavour to the average mundane travel blog.
He is always on the look out for that hidden gem or typical CT party. If it’s fun, relevant, he will cover it.
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.
How to participate:
