Cape Town Shopping and Sight Seeing
|Old slats used to make shabby chic frames sold at The Old Biscuit Mill|
As the name suggests this regenerated creative hub filled with artists work spaces, studios, shops and eateries was once…you guessed it, a biscuit mill. Head here on saturdays for Neighbourgoods Market, a veritable feast of world cuisines are on offer at the stalls. It’s a foodies paradise.

Merchants on Long
South Africa first concept store purveying home grown African designed and made clothing, accessories and interiors. This is the exclusive stockist for many interesting up and coming African labels so it’s definitely worth checking out. Once you’re shopped out, nip across the road to trendy Merchants Shabeen for a quick cocktail.
Cape Town – Sight Seeing
Don’t leave Cape Town without taking in the view from the top of Table Mountain, but apart from the usual tourist sites there’s so much more to do in this beautiful city.
If you have more time in Cape Town I would highly recommend driving out to Franschhoek for a wine tasting experience. There are younger vineyards here and the wines at some of the newer houses are exceptional. Two of the best vineyards that TheStyleTraveller recommends are Babylonstoren and Leopard’s Leap.
