Hello, my name is Diana and I have a blog called Miss Moss.

As someone who loves travelling and always researches a place before I go there I completely understand the appeal of finding out where the locals eat, drink and shop. That’s why I created this guide. You’re guaranteed to have the best time in a foreign city if you have someone showing you around, so if you’re not lucky enough to know a Capetonian then consider the Cape Town City Guide a handy substitute.

a few disclaimers.

1.  It doesn’t cover all the bases.

I’m not attempting to rewrite the Lonely Planet guide to Cape Town. I haven’t listed any of the major tourist attractions, beaches, landmarks, etc – which are super easy to figure out. Visit any tourist office or just google ‘Cape Town’. For a list of all the restaurants in town visit Eat Out.

2. It’s a work in progress.

There are many places that I’ve heard are GREAT… but I’m yet to visit.  In an effort to be transparent I’ve only included places that I have actually been to. BUT I will be updating the guide all the time, and will eventually include more places on the other side of the mountain as well.

3. Suggestions are welcome.

If you’re a local reading this and you have a suggestion of a rad place to visit then please email me. as I said I’d love to continue building and adding onto the list. If you suggest a place I haven’t visited yet then I will go there and experience it first hand before it makes the cut.


in short.

if a friend had to call me up and ask what they should do or see in cape town, this is what i’d tell them.

thanks to.
