South Africa’s Cape Town has once again been ranked as one of the world’s best cities. Popularly known as the “Mother City”, Cape Town boasts beautiful beaches and picturesque landscapes – feats that have placed the city at number 11 on the list of the best cities in the world per a Timeout Index Quiz poll.
It has surprisingly beat other famous cities such as New York and London.
CAPE TOWN ALMOST MAKES TOP 10 BEST CITIES IN THE WORLD, COMES IN AT 11TH PLACE!
If you’ve ever been to Cape Town, then you know, it is breathtakingly beautiful.
Participants of the poll were asked to rate cities around the world based on hiking spots, food, cultures, beaches, and nightlife.
“What’s the restaurant scene like? The bar circuit? How easy is it to date? To make friends? What do you think of the art and nightlife? Where dare we say it, is the coolest part of town?” are some of the questions “city dwellers” were faced with.
NOT TOO EXPENSIVE BUT NOT QUITE SAFE EITHER
Per a Cape Town ETC article, this year’s theme focused on cities that aren’t boring or overly expensive, or overrated.
Voters were also asked to base their scores on practical stuff like walkability, good public transport, and safety.
