WATCH: A vision of a better Mitchells Plain you have to see

When you think of visiting the Mother City, places like Mitchells Plain found on the Cape Flats - do not often make the itinerary grade.

However in an all-inclusive look at one of South Africa's most popular cities, the city's tourism body Cape Town Tourism has released the latest in their  “Love Cape Town Neighbourhoods”. 

The video in the series focuses on the Mitchells Plain neighbourhood and how its people are working to better the vibrant area. Previously Cape Town Tourism created videos for WoodstockKhayelitshaThe Bo-KaapKalk BayConstantia and Langa to name a few.  

It shows people helping children, growing food gardens and artists making the neighbourhood blossom.

The recent Open Streets event that pulls the entire community together features, too, and it’s easy to understand how this event is growing in popularity.

“I think the best thing about Mitchells Plain for me, is the people. That connection between everyone. We don’t have the most aesthetic areas but it’s got heart. You may not see it if you just fly over it, but it’s got lots of heart!” – Fatima Sydow, Cookbook Author and Mitchells Plain resident.  

Take a look at the video below and see all the great things they have to offer.
