The V&A Waterfront hugging Cape Town’s harbour definitely caters for serious shopping with a wide range of brand name boutiques and jewellery stores. The cost of items such as watches (Breitling, Rolex and such), designer handbags and sunglasses are very favourable when compared with prices abroad.
Canal Walk in Century Boulevard has over 400 shops, entertainment options and eateries to explore. The Cape Quarter Lifestyle village is a quaint destination with a European feel, located in De Waterkant, while the Blue Route Mall is a good option for families. Every area of Cape Town has its own shopping district and the quality of its goods at competitive prices – particularly jewellery and fashion – is well known.
