Cape Town has yet again come out on top as the best city in the world based on the votes of 39000 readers of The Telegraph. Winning the Telegraph Travel Awards for 7 consecutive years not only means a lot for Cape Town’s tourism sector but shows just how much of an impact the city makes on each of its visitors.
So, what exactly is it that makes the city so desirable?
With the sheer scope of activities to be had, sights to see, the generally perfect weather and the geographical location, you can see exactly why Cape Town is the long-standing champion. Table Mountain, Cape Point, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Bo-Kaap are just a few of the attractions that make this city so popular to visitors as well as keep the locals so dedicated to it.
Arguably even more impressive is the fact that Cape Town maintained its number 1 position following the severe drought, a challenge for both the city and the tourism sector. Noted Member of the Mayoral Committee for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, including Tourism, James Vos, states: “It is also a reminder of how Capetonians acted together to save water and avert the taps running dry. While we are still in recovery mode, it is encouraging that we have retained our top position despite other major shifts in the rankings. This is something we can be proud of.”
The 20 best cities in the world according to the 2019 Telegraph Travel Awards are as follows:
- Cape Town
- St Petersburg
- Luang Prabang
- New Orleans
- New York
- Buenos Aires
