Voted as one of the best places to visit in the world, Cape Town is indeed a beautiful city, the second largest in South Africa. Located at the south-western tip of Africa, it was originally developed as a fueling and food stop for the ships of the Dutch East-India Company as they made their way to India around the horn of Africa. It has beautiful beaches, mountains, vineyards, sculptured gardens and a delightful blend of people from all over the world. It looks like a modern European city and feels like old-time Africa. Truly a must-see on any globe-trotter's list.
