What is a "Must-See" in Cape Town, South Africa?
My husband and I are travelling to South Africa for our honeymoon and have 5 days in Cape Town. What are the best things to do? What do we absolutely HAVE to go see or do?
There are so many! I live in Cape Town and I still haven't got to everything! A few places I'd recommend you see or do while here:
1) Go up Table Mountain at sunset or during the day.
2) Visit Robben Island and Nelson Mandela's old cell if you like history.
3) Go to the V&A Waterfront, take a canal cruise, take a tour of Cape Town aboard the Red Bus, shop till you drop, enjoy some of Cape Town's best restaurants.
4) Take a day trip to Hermanus (little coastal village - you can watch the whales if it's whale season, visit quaint coffee shops and stores, etc), or mark a day out for wine tasting along Stellenbosch, Durbanville and Helderberg wine routes.
5) Enjoy sundowners in Camps Bay.
6) Visit the World of Birds in Hout Bay - with over 3000 birds it's one of the biggest bird parks in the world.
7) Have a picnic or enjoy a concert in Kirstenbosch Gardens.
There is SO much more to do!
I recently wrote a hub on Cape Town - it will give you a bit more of a feel for what you can expect on your honeymoon here

There is so much to do here! Try going to Kalk Bay to witness a functioning fishing community and vibrant village ( fantastic restaurants such as Satori and the beautifully located Brass Bell). Eating fish and chips while sitting on the harbour wall is a must!
Boulders Beach is a must to view the African Penguin colony and enjoy a swim protected from the Great Whites!! While in the vicinity try the Cape Point Nature Reserve, and make a round trip past Scarborough and Kommetjie on the way home. Misty Cliffs is truly breathtaking!
Take a trip up Table Mountain in the cable car. Hire a car and take the wine route that meanders through the fruit and wine making region. Spectacular scenery!

We are a country of color. We are a country of different cultures. We are a country like no other country. We are different in everything we say and do. Yet we fail to accept and embrace the differences.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of South Africa?I am wondering of people's perceptions of the country- both those who have visited and those who have not.
