Tour South Africa: Cape Town

Today I'm introducing a series called Tour South Africa. I've asked a few of my favourite South African bloggers to share what they love about where they live. I so often am asked by people I meet here in the States, what is South Africa like?, where are interesting place to visit?, what I can I do in South Africa?, is the food and wine/beer good? So here's the first of a series of virtual travels in the beautiful country of South Africa.

"Hi there, this is Lana from lanalou style and I'm so happy to be here on South of the Sahara today! I'd like to share three of my must-visit places in Cape Town with you today...

Firstly, a trip to Kalk Bay is a must. It's a small seaside village that has that permanent holiday feeling all year round. Full of quirky, little shops, restaurants and galleries, it makes for a fun outing. I highly recommend having scrambled eggs and a croissant at C'est la vie, a sweet bakery tucked away on a cobbled side street. {C'est la vie, Rosmead Road, Kalk Bay}







A trip to The Old Biscuit Mill is another must, especially on a Saturday morning when they hold the Neighbour Goods Market there. Make sure you get there early to beat the crowds and enjoy a morning of discovering great local clothing, jewelry, organic foods and more. {The Old Biscuit Mill, 373 - 375 Albert Rd, Woodstock}





Lastly a trip out into the winelands makes for a great day out. There are so many wine farms to explore so make sure you have enough time. Along the Helshoogte Pass on the Stellenbosch wine route, you'll find three top wine farms right next to each other, Tokara, Delaire Graff and Thelema. Make sure you visit each and experience their unique differences and then enjoy a light lunch at Tokara's deli. {DeliCatessen at Tokara, Helshoogte Pass, Stellenbosch}"
