So, just what can you get up to in Cape Town, the creative World Design Capital, in 48 hours, when you book a fabulous weekend city break through Thompsons Holidays?
Being a culture vulture: take in a comedy show, musical, drama or live music concert at one of the spectacular theatres and music venues in Cape Town, including the Theatre on the Bay in chic Camps Bay, the entertaining Richard’s Supper Stage & Bistro in Sea Point or &Union in trendy Bree Street.
Shopping until you drop: renowned for her fantastic shopping spots, the Mother City encourages you to visit her delightful undercover markets, including hot new local spot the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay, and the Kalk Bay Arts and Antiques Mile.
Indulging your inner foodie and wine lover: nothing tells you more about a destination quite likes its cuisine, so indulge to your heart's content in our spicy dishes at the opulent Roundhouse Restaurant, or sample the divine wine-and-chocolate pairing at the Durbanville Hills Wine Estate.
Feeling like royalty: world-class and expertly trained therapists await at the Vineyard Hotel’s Angsana Spa, to pamper you with their luxurious treats.
Being an adrenaline junkie: get up close and personal with the predators of the sea at the Two Oceans Aquarium, take in the sights of the town on a hike with Mother City Hikers or paddle the famous False Bay with the Surfski School’s experienced ocean paddlers.
Doing some spectacular sightseeing: get a bird’s eye view of Cape Town from the top of the impressive Wheel of Excellence at the V&A Waterfront, explore the colourful Bo-Kaap on a walking tour, or take a guided cycle tour through the Winelands with Bike & Saddle.
Staying in the lap of luxury: spend two unforgettable nights in ultimate decadence at the V&A Waterfront’s One&Only Cape Town or Cellars-Hohenort in the Constantia Winelands. For the truly brave, you can sleep within metres of the majestic lions and other wildlife at the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve.
These affordable #LoveCapeTown City Breaks packages are available through Thompsons Holidays from May to September 2013.
