The CBD is the heartbeat of every major city and it is no different for Cape Town. The city centre is the pulse of the Mother City, providing the lifeblood of the surrounding areas. It is a melting pot of diversity and culture, a smorgasbord of historical influences and a place like no other on earth. If you really want to get underneath the skin of Cape Town, you need to start in the city.
From coffee shops and markets, to trendy lunch-spots and sophisticated nightclubs, the city is where it all happens. Bree Street is a lively hub of restaurants and bars, while Long Street continues to be a popular strip, combining clubs, bars and quirky shops selling everything from books to antiques.
The CBD is where it all happens. A combination of work and play, it is where everything comes together. During the day it is a hub of activity, but it is at night, when the curtain is drawn back, that the true soul of the Mother City is revealed. It is only once the sun sets, that the city truly comes alive.
Start your trip to Cape Town in the CBD, get a feel for the city, take a guided tour, grab a bite to eat and then explore beyond is borders.
