Cape Town - The mother city was voted best city in the world for a fifth time by readers of The Telegraph in Britain.
The poll was conducted by the UK newspaper, and according to 90 000 people who voted in the annual Telegraph Travel Awards, Cape Town was the number one city, beating cities like Vancouver and Tokyo.
According to the newspaper’s website, Cape Town clinched the title of best city for its coastal location, shadowed by the iconic Table Mountain, the fine wine and well-known Boulders beach where the penguins roam freely.
Late last month, Cape Town was also one of the 19 cities which joined the list of 180 cities which have been recognised for their contributions to the development of art and design.
The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) Creative Cities Network which started in 2004 aimed to connect cities which invest in promoting art and design as well as creating sustainable development initiatives to drive the cultural and design landscape in their respective countries.
