Cape Town - Cape Town has been announced as the best-value long haul destination in the world in the UK Post Office Travel Money Report, 2016.

The report measures countries based on the price of a basket of items. At £48.89 for a "basket” of 10 tourist items - including meals and drinks - Cape Town ranks significantly cheaper than Bali (£62.56), where the cost of eating out has increased by more than 50% in the past 12 months.
 
Enver Duminy, CEO of Cape Town Tourism said this by no means devalues what Cape Town has to offer. He prefers to term this as “affordable luxury”, given Cape Town’s global reputation for hotels, restaurants, retail experiences and more.
 
Cape Town has been named as Luxury City Destination of the Year for the second consecutive year in the Luxury Travel Guide Africa & Middle East Awards 2016, for example. The Mother City also won the 2015/16 Telegraph Travel Awards as Best City for the fourth year running.

In Condé Nast’s Reader’s Choice Awards, Cape Town took the honour as the number one food city in the world for 2016 and, also in the Condé Nast's Reader’s Choice Awards, Cape Town was chosen as best city in the world for bars and restaurants.
