The extensive and safe parking areas at the Malls ensure that I have enough time to shop and visit coffee shops. Cape Townians are a bunch of friendly and culturally diverse people and the many tourist attractions, makes sure that time passes by too quickly. The Stellenbosch wine farms make sure that you have to return next time for another wine tasting tour and a relaxation session at Mangwanani Spa to spoil ad treat your parents. Cape Town makes sure there is time for family fun church and sport, that's why I will always return to participate i the Annual #OMTOM Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon. Cape Town you are the best! "
