Cape Town is all set to add another feather to its cap of tourist attractions

The beautiful city of Cape Town

The beautiful city of Cape Town

  • Previously known for  Cape Point, Robben Island, Groot Constantia, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch and the V&A Waterfront, now it will be also known for the City Walk. The project is undertaken by The Cape Town Partnership.
  • City walk is an interesting concept wherein, tourists will get to interact with the locals, munch on the local snacks, participate in events and get more acquainted with their art, culture and history. Moreover, City Walk will have free Wi-Fi and public loos! The route would  offer informative signage to peel back the layers of Cape Town’s hidden stories.
  • Unwinding in 2015, the proposed route would start at the Company’s Garden, move down Government Avenue and St George’s Mall before heading to the Fan Walk and ending at the Prestwich Memorial. However, this is not the final route, the route will be decided with inputs from the public, including formal and informal retailers, residents, students and entrepreneurs.
  • The City Walk will liven this beautiful city and make it a 24-hour city. It’s a perfect ground for portrayal of heritage, public art, retail and events. It will weave these elements together and create story that will engage  and captivate not only the tourists but also the locals.
  • City Walk will help the tourists in experiencing the street life of Cape Town. The organisers want to make the City Walk a ‘crossroads’ or meeting point of divergent histories, cultures and demographics.
