It’s official! Cape Town has been crowned the World’s Best Holiday Hotspot in 2023, according to The UK Post Office Travel Money’s 17th annual Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer. Cape Town beat 39 other destinations to claim the top spot, proving itself as the ultimate destination for a memorable vacation.

The report highlights that Cape Town is the place where British holidaymakers will get the most value for their hard-earned cash. The survey considered the cost of eight everyday tourist items, including a three-course meal for two with wine, a cup of coffee, a bottle of local beer, a can of cola, and suncream. 

According to the findings, Cape Town currently offers the best value for money, with a drop of 7.5% in costs.
