Readers have to rate their favourite countries based on various criteria including food, accommodation, scenery, and value for money… and Cape Town scored 88.27 for 2022, putting the Mother City at number 9!

 

Johannesburg, South Africa (09 October 2022) – What are the best cities in the world? These are the coolest cities to visit on the planet, as voted for by the readers of Condé Nast Traveller… and Cape Town has found itself on the list once again.

The annual Readers’ Travel Awards celebrates the best of the best in travel, as voted for by people who love travel… the readers of Condé Nast Traveller. Readers have to rate their favourite countries based on various criteria including food, accommodation, scenery, and value for money. A score is then given representing overall average levels of satisfaction.

And Cape Town scored 88.27 for 2022, putting the Mother City at number 9!

This is what the publication had to say.

“On pristine beaches, penguins waddle about their business while leaping dolphins frame spectacular sunsets – and thrill-seekers head out on boats to come face-to-face with fearsome sharks. Away from the ocean, guests check into world-renowned hotels such as The Silo, the recognisable property where rooms feature contemporary African art and 360-degree views of the city. Table Mountain views are enjoyed over supper, especially during trips to Delaire Graff Estate for wine-swirling and impeccable tasting menus.”

But this is not the first time that Cape Town has been voted as “one of the best cities” in the world. In 2019, the Telegraph voted Cape Town as THE BEST CITY in the world… a title that the city had held onto for seven years! In 2021, the city was voted as BEST IN AFRICA and earlier this year the Mother City was named voted 11th best city in the world (and 2nd best in Africa)!
