Best shopping in Cape Town

By Chris Boyle


Shopping in Cape Town can be a vibrant and exciting experience, with the chance to dive into an array of prestigious international brands, unique and trendy boutiques from local designers, and fascinating traditional and local art and crafts.

International designer and luxury shopping can be found at the dazzling Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, at Century City’s vibrant Canal Walk shopping centre, and a little further afield in the fashionable suburb of Claremont, at Cavendish Square mall. Trendy Kloof and Long Streets are the places to head for chic boutiques and curios, and are wellstocked with stylish restaurants and bars for when it’s time to take a break from browsing. Take a look at our shopping highlights and listings for a flavor of what’s on offer.
