Where Would You Rather Be Wednesdays: places to visit and things to do in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
It’s Wednesday, Cape Town fanatics (and tomorrow is a public holiday), so I ask you: where would you rather be today?
Personally, I could go for a full body traditional fynbos massage at the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa, followed by a dip and sunbathing session with my loved ones at St James beach, and then an entertaining show at the award-winning Baxter Theatre in Rondebosch. But hey, that’s just my wishful thinking …
Here’s what you Mother City maniacs had to say last Wednesday:
“Standing at the top of Lion's Head admiring the pretty views from up there, then get drinks later on beach front in Camps Bay. *sigh* I miss that life!!” – Bonolo Modise
“Eden on Big Bay! Sipping cocktails in the bar pool watching the waves.” – James el Toro
“On a rock at Cosy Bay (small beach close to Twelve Apostles Hotel).” – Nadine van Rensburg
“Watching whales frolicking just off Mouille Point Beach! God, I love this city!” – Shaheen Jutsen
