Advantages A rainbow experience, everything you could find anywhere else in the world, and more
Disadvantages Crime can be scary, it helps to be vigilant.
Cape Town is undeniably the crème de la crème of picturesque cities to visit in South Africa. Even as you walk around in the city's central business district, the air is still pure enough to feel as if any of the beautiful first world buildings and constructions, breathe at one with nature as a certain palpable, hazy warmth wraps around you in calm, quiet magnitude. Tarry awhile to listen to the gentle cooing of doves overhead and you may just find yourself hopelessly addicted.Locals are friendly, and can be a little too friendly if you find yourself in certain parts that only locals know how to find their way about. They might offer to wash and look after your car and if you refuse, might swamp you with pressing requests to do so, just wave a friendly, firm and dismissive nay (try not to look afraid) and they'll not usually press on.
Local produce such as fruit, wine and fish are generally inexpensive and because the country is rich in natural resources, most foods are manufactured / grown naturally. Muizenberg and Simon's Town boasts its own little fish spots where local fisherman bring in their catch several times throughout the day. What a tasty way to live healthily!Local restaurants (i.e family favourites) which are cheap include the Spur (various branches all over), Ocean Basket (among others), however, if grub is the thing which keeps your boat afloat, you might want to drive in to Macdonalds, KFC or Pizza Hut... If you have a wallet that's bursting at the seems, you might want to give it all up at the Mount Nelson Hotel.
