    Posted by on Oct 30th, 2013

    Make some space in the trophy cabinet because Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, has named Cape Town as the 3rd best city in the world to travel to in 2014. The Best In Travel guide book for 2014 was recently released and it covers the top 10 best countries, top 10 best value travel destinations, top 10 regions etc. as well as the coveted top 10 cities in which Cape Town grabbed third place behind Paris and Trinidad.

    Nicely done Cape Town.

    Not top honours, but i’ll take top 3.

    I didn’t go through all the other categories so who knows there may be some other bragging rights for Cape Town.

    Maybe Joburg also got an award….jokes.

    Coming on top of an annual increase in visitors to Cape Town of 8%, this is great news for our Tourism industry. Recent accolades for our City include the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards, wher Cape Town was first in the category Top 10 Cities in Africa and the Middle East and was ranked 11th in the Top 25 Cities in the World.
