Tag Archives: Best City in the world

Lucky number 7 for Cape Town, voted Best City in the world seven times in a row, voted by Telegraph readers in the UK!

 

For seven years running Cape Town has been voted the Best City in the world, by 40000 readers of the UK Telegraph

 

A quote from the publication shares the following about our special city, from a tourist perspective: ‘We”ll put up with the occasional discomfort for the sheer joy of waking up with a real natural beauty’. The City is also praised for its iconic Table Mountain, ‘and it is precisely this unique geography, towering mountains that drop, at times perpendicularly, into the vast blue, that is so seductive’. Its proximity to Franschhoek wine region is also highlighted.

London or any other British City does not feature in the Top 20 Telegraph List, showing that UK tourists are prepared to travel far from their country to enjoy their holidays.  

I am happy to see Havana and Buenos Aires on the Top 20 List too, two cities which I visited just four months ago.
