The best city in South Africa. Lovely landscape with an ocean at the front of our hotel and mountains at the back. Very lively city and tourist friendly. Visited the table bay mountain which stands strong in Capetown. The top of the mountain is always covered with clouds and whenever you can see the top, its considered to be your lucky day as per the locals. Saw the soccer stadium which hosted the FIFA World Cup final in the year 2010. Whenever you walked out near the bay, you could spot some sea lions at the dock preying on fish and other sea creatures. Visited the Cape of good hope, where the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean collide. You could clearly spot the collision as both the water bodies had different shades of blue. Thoroughly enjoyed their local food at our hotel which was really well located in the city. Lastly, went for whale watching via a small cruise-boat. Spotted many dolphins and a whale during the tour which amazed me how big was the whale.

About an hour from Cape Town is Stellenbosch which is a haven for wine lovers. It has innumerable vineyards stretching across vast acres of land. We decided to head to Asara Wines which is a Wine Estate cum hotel. When I entered, it was like a splash of colors and I was awed with all its beauty. We tasted around 12 different types of wines & then sat in the restaurant overlooking a lake. You definitely cannot miss the vineyards of South Africa
