I departed an economic FlySafair flight from King Shaka international Airport, Durban; then the Arrive at the most beautiful of SA Airports…CTIA. The feel and the ambience was all there upon arrival. It’s a different time of the year. Drought, Winter Storms and adversity on the horizon. The city has less hustle, the cars don’t parallel park along Victoria Road towards Camps Bay, putting homeowners in difficulty with the limited space in the most expensive stretch of National Property stretching from Sea Point to Bakoven.
The sun is rising later, and fog and mist dominate the peak traffic hour around nine. The city bowl is always a spectacle and the other side of the table mountain national park beckons a very different picture compared to summer. Sunset at around 17h30, and temperature midday can be as low as 11 deg Celsius. So plan appropriately for the adverse weather. I travel, eat, pray, love, and even workate (WORKATION…its a thing) along the Mother City for next fortnight. But I realized that as areas go, and especially on the most affluent part of Signal Hill on the TABLE Mountain, FRESNAYE has been rated most expensive property evaluation nationally. Ok, and all the way on to Hout Bay, we are looking at high rise apartments that can fetch from anything from 15 mil ZAR and heap up to 290 BAR….really?
The V&A Waterfront is much a central point regarding the tourism information centre. Do try the city sightseeing bus. The historical significance did get much mention throughout the different routes and stops. The stops allow for botanical gardens outing, wine tours, Harbour adventure, Rural and Historical monument visits. The only problem for some tourists is that some audio is not available in their preferred language. Regarding the issue of visas, banking, and financial services within the mall, there is retail outlets like BidVest exchange as well as Western Union in order to assist with international transactions.
