Fuad’s top unexpected winter experiences in Cape Town
Why should winter have us all indoors, feeling bored and gloomy when we have so much to experience in the Mother City? Here are just a few of the things I love doing during winter:
It's easy to have a brisk walk along the paths in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. The sounds of nature and waterfalls, as well as the amazing views from the contour path offer a memorable experience on drier days.
A wintery night could never stop me from venturing into a new playground and club hopping in the Pink Village is “hot” even in winter with beautiful bodies and gorgeous barmen and dancers to make your heart race.
Breakfast takes a Cape Town twist at the Wale Rose Cape Malay restaurant in Bo Kaap. It is an amazing space in which to immerse yourself for culture and diverse cuisine.
A breakfast pancake with sausage and a glass of freshly pressed pineapple juice is a great start to the day!
Bay Harbour Market is a great place to shelter yourself from the cold and enjoy the chatter of other people, while watching them partake in a great bit of retail therapy.
Another favourite haunt of both mine is the V&A Waterfront, with a variety of shops to feed our needs for shopping and also to sit down and enjoy an ice cream or treat and watch the people from every corner of the world go by!
