  The V&A Waterfront, with Table Mountain behind
by sunshinejo

It's really worth having a wander around the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town and spending a bit of time there. It's a really beautiful area, with plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as lots of boats coming and going, sea lions and of course, Table Mountain in the background! I guess how much time you spend here depends on how much money you want to spend, as there's not much in the way of free activities here. If you're not counting every penny, then maybe, after exploring for a bit, take a boat ride around the harbour before stopping in one of the many restaurants for a bite to eat (lots of fish restaurants serving excellent seafood!) and then check out some of the local street performers.

Directions: It's best to catch a bus here from the city centre or drive, as it's not safe to walk between the two.
