Full DescriptionWith far more than a million tourists a year, Cape Town is considered among the most alluring and attractive destinations in the world. This modern and creative metropolis at the foot of Table Mountain, with its turbulent history of colonialism, apartheid, and liberation, is as culturally fascinating as it is disarmingly beautiful, and holds many unexpected surprises. Did you know, for instance, that you can sample more than 500 types of whiskey in one waterfront bar here? Or stroll an elevated walkway that snakes magically through the treetops? Or visit the very prison cell where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years of his confinement? This book will guide you through "The Mother City" and lead you to its most enthralling places, many of which are located beyond the well-trodden tourist paths and are even largely unknown to locals.
