Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Cape TownAt the foot of one of the world's most famous mountains, lies Cape Town city centre, where locals & tourists gather to work, shop & play. It's a bit sleepier ... a bit more laid back than other major centres.  Perhaps it's because it's so spread out.  Perhaps it's because you can't get too stressed when you're surrounded by  such magnificent views.  It's a cosmopolitan city - and the fascinating bloodlines of ancient civilisations are reflected on the faces of its people - Khoi/San, Javanese, Malaysian, African, European, Indian ...
