TL;DR: great place if you like busy places. Amazing things to see. A lot to do This place is really beautiful. There's so many shops and you can most likely find exactly what you're looking for. It is almost always very very busy. There is people everywhere and is not a bad busy but rather a party time busy. The restaurants is also really beautiful and have a great great view of all the boats coming in.
A beautiful vibrant place to experience. There are multiple stores to visit. There are multiple activities to do while you are here as well such as going on a cruise tour and experiencing fine dining or perhaps watching a concert, sounds surreal right? Except it's not. There are so many gasp worthy moments that leave you astonished at this establishment. You are certified to leave extremely exhausted here man, walking around alone is a journey, this place is humongous. Overall, i enjoyed exploring this trendy place. It was worth the hype. Cape Town has a special place in my heart.
