Cape Town, often referred to as the “Mother City,” has achieved an impressive accolade in the world of travel. It has been named the fourth-best large city globally and secured the seventh position overall in the prestigious 2023 Reader’s Choice Awards by Condé Nast Traveller.

This recognition is not just a feather in the city’s cap but also a testament to its unique blend of natural beauty, vibrant culture, and warm hospitality. Enver Duminy, the CEO of Cape Town Tourism, expressed his gratitude, stating, “We’re deeply honoured by the vote of confidence from Condé Nast Traveller’s discerning readers. This recognition highlights the allure of our city and validates our ongoing efforts to make Cape Town a globally renowned and inclusive destination.”

Duminy also highlighted the positive impact of this recognition, not just for Cape Town but for South Africa as a whole. It boosts the country’s profile on the world stage and beckons travellers from far and wide to explore its treasures.

Alderman James Vos, mayoral committee member for economic growth, took a moment to appreciate the people who contribute to Cape Town’s success, saying, “The City extends its gratitude to the hundreds of thousands of Condé Nast Travellers for consistently choosing Cape Town. A special thanks goes to every Capetonian who warmly welcomes visitors from around the world. Your hospitality is the heart of our beautiful city.”

Vos also emphasized the city’s commitment to further enhancing its appeal through innovative campaigns and projects designed to attract tourists from all corners of the globe.

The Condé Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice Awards hold a special place in the travel industry as one of its longest-running and most prestigious recognitions. Each year, these awards gather input from hundreds of thousands of readers to determine the winners in various categories.

In the large city category, Cape Town faced stiff competition from global counterparts like Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, and Sydney, securing a coveted spot in the top five.

Condé Nast Traveller’s assessment of the Mother City was glowing, underscoring its charm and allure:

We eagerly await the opportunity to welcome visitors from all corners of the globe to experience Cape Town’s award-winning tourism offerings.”
