There’s never been a better time to visit Cape Town thanks to a proliferation of edgy boutiques, independent galleries, and forward-thinking restaurants like Test Kitchen by Neighbourgoods Market, where biltong (cured meat) is topped with plum-cured foie gras. And the buzz is spreading: StumbleUpon noticed that Cape Town is one of the top 10 destinations generating interest among its community of 30 million users. The city has been designed the World Design Capital for 2014, with more than 450 events in the works. It’s also an opportunity to pay tribute to the late Nelson Mandela with a visit to Robben Island, where he spent 18 of his 27 years in prison.

Cape Town is a beautiful, must-see city, and people are flocking there right now. It's a cosmopolitan city with a perfect location in between the mountains and the ocean. The views, the beaches, and the welcoming people . . . how soon can I return?

Dynamic hub of the Western Cape. Beautiful city with a cosmopolitan feel. Lots to explore. Not to be missed. Surf the two oceans, explore the beaches, see the penguins, take in the history. And the wine nearby!

A new favorite of mine. There was so much to do, everything was SO cheap, and the people were really friendly. A favorite vocation destination of mine.

Possibly (ok, PROBABLY) the world's most beautiful city, Cape Town is the cosmopolitan heart of southern Africa. Five-star dining, five-star shopping, five-star nightlife, and one of the most colorfully mixed cultures on Earth make it a stunning place to explore for a week or more. This, however, is just the beginning. With the 1000-meter colossus of Table Mountain looming above stunning white-sand beaches, and the peaks of the Twelve Apostles backing some of the planet's most dramatic cliffs and coastline, it's also blessed with a natural setting that puts other cities positively to shame. Whether you're partying, catching a concert in the park at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, chilling with the penguins at Boulders Beach, or just eating some of the tastiest Cape-Malay food ever made, Cape Town is a city that will captivate you, and have you planning your next visit before you've even left.

By far, one of my favorite cities in the world. It has a great climate, is surrounded by awesome natural beauty, there's plenty of fun shopping, culture and it is just a short drive from so many incredible attractions.

There's a lot to do around Cape Town, but there's also high crime rates. If you're not familiar with the area, don't go wandering around on your own like I did. I narrowly missed some bad situations, and more than a couple hotel clerks pointed out how stupid I had been. I had no problems around the tourist areas.

The people in Cape Town insist there is no competition between Johannesburg and Cape Town. This is followed immediately by a litany of reasons why they prefer Cape Town with the leading reason being that Cape Town is more relaxed. I do agree that Cape Town is more relaxed. Johannesburg is more nervous but still able to smile. Cape Town is where one vacations. Johannesburg is where one conducts business.
