Falling in love with Cape Town: Things to see and do

The name 'Cape Town' is derived from the 'Cape of Good Hope'. The Cape of Good Hope was a supply outpost for the Dutch ships that were en route to East African Coast and India in the 15th century. As more and more Dutch settled at the Cape of Good Hope, it quickly outgrew its purpose and became a major metropolis called Cape Town.

Recently during the era of gold rush, it was overtaken by Johannesburg as the biggest city in South Africa. However, it still retained its title as the seat of the legislative assembly of South Africa.

With such kind of history, there must be an array of activities a tourist can engage in at the city. Below are a few of them.
