CNN world’s 10 most loved cities: Cape Town is there
Roy Barford has lived in more than 10 cities and towns around the world, but decided to settle in Cape Town. He loves the fact that he can enjoy both urban and natural adventures every day, surrounded by creativity and tranquility.
He is a sports fanatic who can often be found at Newlands rugby and cricket stadiums, while he also enjoys outdoor adventure activities and exploring Cape Town's vast nightlife options.
Roy has written for publications such as the Sunday Tribune, Cape Argus and the Star, and has also blogged for websites such as Southafrica.net, Tablemountain.net.
The CNNGo website explains how the top 10 cities were decided: "We've trawled the Internet for media 'best of' praise, solicited recommendations from local correspondents, bloggers and travellers, scraped the bottom of every Internet and press barrel we could find for reasons not to include these conurbations, and still came up with what we think is a definitive list of the world's most loved cities."
The World's 10 Most Loved Cities according to CNNGo are:
New York City
Below is a promotional video that CNNGo created for a series about Cape Town last year. The footage captures the energy and diversity of the Mother City brilliantly.
