THE CITY CENTRE
...take a morning or day to stroll from Long Street up through the city to Kloof Street. From shopping to coffee, architecture to museums & galleries. This is a vibey section of Cape Town; at night there is a mulitude of music styles and a myriad of culinary choices to suit all pockets.
