Cape Town's setting is one of the world's most stunning.

In this beautiful city even transient visitors can't help but devote a few million brain cells to storing images of its grandeur: its striking Table Mountain backdrop, its glorious beaches and enchanting vineyards, its rugged landscapes and its strange and wonderful plants and animals.

Cape Town is famed for its hospitality: its mix of trendy establishments matches up favourably any other cosmopolitan centre. There's a lively cultural scene, particularly when it comes to music, which seems to pervade every corner of the city. The general ambience is open-minded and relaxed.

Weather

In winter, between June and August, temperatures range from 7°C to 18°C with pleasant, sunny days scattered between the gloomy ones. From September to November the weather is unpredictable, with anything from bright warm days to howling southeasterly storms and winds of up to 120kph. December to March can be very hot, although the average maximum temperature is only 26°C and the Cape doctor generally keeps things bearable. From March to April, and to a lesser extent in May, the weather remains good and the wind is at its most gentle.

A Top Day in Capetown

The first thing I do when I wake up in my flat in Rondebosch is to take a walk out onto the terrace and say good morning to the mountain. If it's a clear day, the towering grey-blue bulk in front of me seems to be beckoning, and it's on with the hiking boots and off to walk to the summit. A few hours later, tired but elated, I sun myself on the rocks alongside the cute little dassies, and admire the view before taking the cable car down again for a late breakfast at Lola's on Long Street (their lattes are to die for). To pamper my aching muscles, I head to the Long Street Baths for a long session of steam bath, massage and sauna before a bit of leisurely retail therapy at my favourite quirky boutiques. I'll spend an hour or two lost in thought among the Africana of Clarke's bookshop, then try on ridiculous party dresses and scrabble for retro handbags at Second Time Around or Never on a Sunday.

My credit card suitably swiped out, I grab a curry roti and an ice-cream cocktail at Mojito's before grabbing my towel and hitting the beach (Camps Bay or Clifton if I'm feeling brave enough to compare my bikini - and my butt - with the beautiful people surrounding me!). If the south easterly's blowing, I'll turn my back on the beach and instead head up to Constantia for a glass or two of sublime Pinot Noir among the rows of vines that nestle against the foot of the mountain. Sundrenched and satisfied, I'll meet friends for sunset cocktails at La Med in Camps Bay, then head back into town for an arthouse movie at the Labia cinema on Kloof Street followed by my favourite butternut ravioli on the terrace at Green's.
