Cape Town by Night
As seen from the top of Signal Hill








V&A Waterfront

Situated in the working harbour of Cape Town the vibrant V&A Waterfront is South Africa’s most visited attraction. The waterfront has so many activities and attractions which make it a very interesting and exciting place.
People visit for numerous reasons; to shop, dine, sip on cocktails, to listen to music, go on boat trips and visit the Two Oceans Aquarium… the list goes on.
The underlying appeal of the V&A Waterfront is its magnificent setting. With Table Mountain looking down on you and the fresh ocean breeze from Table Bay take some time to take in the scenery.
The harbour is just as beautiful in the night as it is in the day and it is always alive with visitors.

The Port of Cape Town

Because of its position along one of the world's busiest trade routes it is one of the busiest ports in South Africa, handling the largest amount of fresh fruit and second only to Durban as a container port. The port also has significant repair and maintenance facilities that are used by several large fishing fleets and parts of the West African oil industry. Because of the many tourist attractions offered by Cape Town and its surrounding region, many cruise ships also berth in the port.

Inner City from Signal Hill

Here are just a couple random shots of the city centre and inner-city suburbs taken from Signal Hill (350m high) on the west flank of Table Mountain. Taken yesterday, 11th April. You can see it's the end of our dry, summer season and winter needs to come, everything looks a little dry!

Very good shots of Cape Town. If there is high crime and muggings in this city, you will think that people will prefer to live in apartment buildings for better security. So there will be demand for more construction of these apartment buildings and a better skyline. I mean look at Brazilian cities. Security creates demand for these towers and look at those skylines. Is this happening? Photos?

Nope. Crime has been decreasing very rapidly in the city. Crime is at very low levels in most inner-city areas. High-crime rates are usually only found in outer-areas like shanty towns. The push to live in apartments for those reasons is not evident here at all. People live in apartments, because they want to be close to work, restaurants, street life, nightlife etc. Cape Town's urban fabric is not nearly as dense and will not be nearly as dense as Brazilian cities anytime in the near future.

South African cities' anatomy does not resemble Brazil's at all. Our cities' more resemble an Australian urban anatomy. If you browse through the pics, you'll see Cape Town more resembles the urban environment of a Melbourne or Perth rather than a Sao Paulo or Rio.

I love Cape Town to bits and actually made a conscious decision to live here. I could have lived in the USA had I wanted to. But, that said, I do love Quebec... the landscape is gorgeous in a genteel way, Mont Tremblant is awesome and Montréal and Québec are two very cool cities, and very unique in their context of being in North America.
Oh my God, changing beautiful Cape town for the US would have been a regrettable decision...it is like moving form heaven to hell!


I love the Cape Town pics, a true delight to the eye...keep them coming!
