Cape Town – the World’s Best Holiday Spot 2023!

2 min read

We are so excited to share that Cape Town has won the top spot in the UK Post Office Travel Money’s 17th annual Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer! Out of 40 destinations worldwide, the Mother City claimed first place as the best value for money holiday destination.

First place is calculated by comparing each country’s cost for 8 essential items that UK tourists need. This includes: a three-course meal for two with wine, a bottle of local beer, a glass of wine, a can of Coca-Cola, a large bottle of still water, a cup of coffee, sunscreen, and insect repellent. South Africa came out with two items as the cheapest, the three-course meal and the bottle of beer. The costs related to spending a holiday in South Africa dropped by 7.5%. In second place is last year’s winner, Marmaris, Turkey and in third is Sunny Beach, Bulgaria.

So why make Cape Town your next holiday destination? Besides the affordable costs compared to other countries, South Africa has some amazing qualities that make it extremely popular. Our beautiful natural biodiversity can be seen in Cape Town by visiting Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, and one of the many stunning beaches. You can find gorgeous wine farms within 30 minutes to an hour outside of Cape Town CBD. Our culture and heritage are thriving – visit one of the many museums, heritage centres, or cultural performances to find out. A trip to local restaurants and bars is obviously a must and supporting local businesses means supporting the local community and economy. As we say in South Africa – local is lekker!

And then, of course, there is the rest of South Africa to explore!
