Table Mountain in my opinion is a land mark , that marks Cape Town. Cape Town is situated at the base of the mountain as in my photo in my introductory page.

Well there is 2 ways up the mountain , you can either hike up well marked trails or you can go by cable car. Either way you just have to go ontop of that mountain. When up there you`ll know why I say you gotta get up there. The view is absolutely beautiful.

There is various restaurants ontop of the mountain and in my opinion , have breakfast or lunch before you go to the top because I found it very expensive to go and have to eat in those restaurants.

Never the less you just gotta make this one of your stops.

      The weather in Cape Town can be something. Last time I was on on Table Mountain it took about 10 mins before we were covered in clouds but do hope I can make a trip there soon again as I was there in October last year and we also had bad weather for most of the days we were there.
