Cape Town is Time Out’s 11th Best City in the World!

Cape Town’s done it again. It’s on another global ‘best of’ list!

This time, it’s the Time Out Index 2022. Time Out quizzed 20,000 city-slickers about their hometown to rank the best cities in the world right now.

Cape Town proudly placed at number 11, narrowly missing a top 10 spot.

You can do it all in Cape Town

Time Out asks city-dwellers about everything in their hometown, from the restaurant scene and art galleries to what the neighbours are like and which neighbourhoods are worth visiting.

People’s answers enable Time Out to create a snapshot of life in a particular city.

Here’s what Time Out had to say about Cape Town:

Good food, culture, mountains, beaches, nightlife – you can do it all in Cape Town. Few cities are better for outdoorsy types, what with all the excellent swimming spots, from Clifton and Camps Bay on the Atlantic side to Muizenberg and Simon’s Town on the Indian. Not to mention all the hiking opportunities offered up by the likes of Newlands Forest, Cecilia Forest, and Kirstenbosch Garden. Head back into town, order a boerewors (hot dog) roll and you’ll basically be in heaven.

We’d say that description is spot on! And so are these observations:

  • 93% of Capetonians described the Mother City as beautiful, the second highest in the world
  • 93% said they rated the city highly for the variety of things to do
  • 87% of those polled in Cape Town said it was easy to relax – more than anywhere else in the world!

Come see the city for yourself!

Cape Town is the perfect holiday destination year-round.

The sun only sets at 8.30 at night at the height of summer, and even winter sees its fair share of sunny days. Come hike, taste some of our award-winning wines, catch some sun on a Blue Flag beach, and kick back with locals along the famous Camps Bay strip.

There is much to see, do and love about the Mother City!
