If there is a city in this world filled with such contrasts and dichotomies as Cape Town, we certainly haven't seen it yet. The landscape is as shocking as anything with its wild ocean running right up to the base of the mammoth Table Mountain, which protectively hugs the city bowl. Within the city you have an economical range from shanties to chalets and the people make up every color of the rainbow. Surprisingly all these elements live together in a unique harmony that doesn't at all live up to the scary reputation that might wrongly turn travelers away. In short: We loved it! Go! Visit!
