Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa, colloquially named the Mother City. It has been named "the most beautiful city in the world" and has been recognized as a global design city. With breathtaking views of mountain and ocean side by side, a wine producing region rivaling France and Napa, and Michelin starred restaurants it's a lot of luxury at less than half of the cost you'd find anywhere else in the world. For all of its perks, Cape Town is still wrestling with its past. Robben Island, in the heart of the city, was the place of Nelson Mandela's decades long imprisonment and segregation (both physical and economic) still plagues the city. It is a study in Africa's colonial history that is not to be missed.
