Top Fun Things To Do In Cape Town As Shared By Others Like Conde Nast
Let me start with a summary by Conde Nast announcing the Top 25 Cities in the World: Readers’ Choice Awards 2014
Cape Town is the best city in the world for blending urban culture with the great outdoors: They’re literally a five-minute drive from each other. There’s an exploding food scene, with vegetables, wine, and cheese coming from the gorgeous Cape Winelands; and then there’s the top of Table Mountain which, on the right day, can feel as pristine and empty as when the Dutch first pitched up in the early 17th century. Eat at Luke Dale-Roberts’ The Test Kitchen; go to sunbathe and people-gawk at Clifton 2nd Beach; surf, if you dare, at Muizenberg (sharks!), and climb Lion’s Head for crazy 360-degree views of the city. —Maria Shollenbarger, editor at large
According to the Gaurdian’s Top 10 things to do in Cape Town
Cape Town combines the best of all worlds. Steeped in history and set against a fabulous natural backdrop, with a bustling waterfront and within close reach of the Capes and Winelands, it has something to offer for everyone – whether you’re visiting for culture, gastronomic delights or the beach…

Is it not interesting how The Guardian and Conde Nastuse “blending” or “combining”. The one says Cape Town is best at blending culture and outdoors. The other says Cape Town combines the best of all worlds; history and nature. Now we have culture (the present), history and nature – and more all in one city.

Whale watching on Chapman’s Peak
Grab a book, a picnic blanket, a bottle of wine and a friend and go chill on Chapman’s Peak. You’re likely to see something in that water. I’ve often sat and watched dolphins playing in Hout Bay and on this day, caught a pair of whales having a frolick in the bay!
Obviously you need to be here when the whales visit but if they are not around take the bottle of wine and go in any. Popcorncandy listed some real interesting things to do. And I had to share another.
Wine tasting in Constantia
Okay, so this one barely makes the cut merely because you won’t go to a place for just one wine tasting. You’ll likely order something to eat as well (I highly recommend the cheese board at Constantia Glen) or move on to another farm for another tasting. If you’re clever, you can make it work nicely for you, though.
Most people head out to Paarl, Stellenbosch or Franschhoek for wine days, but the Constantia Wine Route holds some gems as well and is nice and close for those in the Southern Suburbs. Beau Constantia‘s tasting room view is phenomenal.
This photo was shared by PopcornCandy and it was taken at Constantia Glen. This is one of our favourite wine farms; the wine is great, the view timeless and the cheese platter the best.

Check out her blog post. It’s worth it. She did the no ordinary things. For example the following is by no means run of the mill touristy.
One of the best things about travelling is getting to meet the locals. Andulela Tours offer cultural tours where you get a more personal experience and get to meet people face to face in small groups. Of course the people selected are fascinating and you get to learn a little about them, their work and their opinion of Cape Town and their place in it.
They arranged for me (Vicky) to meet Hilton Schilder. I was picked up from my hotel and driven the 20 minutes out to his home. It was a modest house in a run of detached houses – his wife had made us delicious chicken and rice, and I was welcomed with a Savannah cider.
If you want an adrenaline fun thing to do in Cape Town try the new zipline coming to Cape Town’s Table Mountain
Cape Town – Come 1 November 2014, and Cape Town will have its very own ‘foofy-slide’ zipping over the national heritage area on the southern side of Table Mountain near Constantia Nek.
The new zipline has come as a big, well-welcomed surprise to adventure lovers, as the owner Clinton Lerm and an expert team have been building the zipline in secret on the Silvermist Mountain Lodge and Wine Estate for the past few months, reports Netwerk24.
The Australians compiled a list of the best free things to do around the world in 2015 and Cape Town features
Planet Earth has plenty of dramatic viewpoints, most with a price tag as stratospheric as the views. Not so Table Mountain. Those willing to brave the gruelling trek from Cape Town to the summit can enjoy one of Africa’s most iconic views for free, with the fall-back option of the cable car for the trip back to town. Armed with drinking water and protection from the elements, you can choose from some 350 trails that force their way up the rocky cliff s, or play it safe on the India Venster route, following the path of the cable car to the peak. A map is essential if you hope to conquer Table Mountain – locals rate the maps produced by Peter Slingsby (slingsbymaps.com).

3. Life’s a Beach
Camp’s Bay, nestled just below the Twelve Apostles mountain range, is the perfect chic and trendy beach town to visit. I recommend a stay at the luxurious Marly Hotel located directly across the street from the beach. Be sure to check out Umi restaurant at the Marly for excellent sushi and views of the sunset. Hout Bay is also an extremely romantic and picturesque place to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean. For the ultimate romantic getaway, head to Tintswalo Atlantic, located on Chapman’s Peak Drive, part of Table Mountain National Park. This gem offers killer views and the ultimate in Five Star luxury.
Every one who visits Cape Town will visit Camps Bay at least once. Camps Bay is Cape Towns answer to St Tropez.
