It's only natural that a holiday in South Africa ends with having to buy an additional suitcase to cart home all of your new purchases. From distinctive arts and crafts to colourful clothing and rare jewels, shopping in Cape Town is hard to resist. The markets in particular are the best places to head to pick up something original and to get a taste for local life. The Pan African Market is best for folk art, beading, Victorian tiling, antiques and custom-tailored garments, while the popular Greenmarket Square is where you can choose from a full range of arts, crafts and CDs of local music. Browse the stalls, barter down a good price and bring home something to remember your Cape Town holiday by.
Serious shoppers will know that Africa is the place to buy unique jewellery and precious gemstones. In Cape Town there are a number of hotspots to pick up a show-stopping piece.
