Information about Cape Town
Airport - Cape Town International Airport (CTIA) (IATA: CPT, ICAO: FACT) is the second largest airport in South Africa. Major local airlines include South African Airways, Nationwide, British Airways. The airport is a 22km (14-mile) drive from the center of town, so it should take no longer than 20 to 30 minutes to get into the city and surrounds. Sea: Cape Town has a long tradition as a port city.
Shopping - The V&A Waterfront is the prime tourist destination for souvenirs, though these tend to be typically touristy (i.e. expensive and not necessarily authentic). More authentic curios for better prices can be found every Sunday at the Green Point market outside the Green Point Stadium on Sundays, in walking distance from the V & A Waterfront. For the real deal with authentic artefacts complete with provenance and ethnographic background, go to Church Street where there are a couple of shops but be prepared for sticker shock.
