I Love Cape Town Central Because …

Updated Wednesday, 2 January 2019

Hi, I’m Jason Rodwell from the Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel in Cape Town Central.

Cape Town Central IS BEST KNOWN FOR Long Street and the nightlife surrounding it.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT Table Mountain which is, in my opinion, one of the best things Cape Town has to offer and such an amazing natural wonder.

THE BEST “artsy” PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT Green Market Square.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO spend time in Nature, walking / hiking.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO stay indoors, eat good food and be in good company.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS January / February, BECAUSE the weather is amazing and its the best time for festivals.
