Greenmarket Square

Given that this has to be one of the most beautiful and architecturally interesting city squares in the southern hemisphere, no trip to Cape Town is complete without some quality bonding time on this historical gem. Come here for a full range of African folk art plus well-priced CDs and souvenir clothing. An added bonus is the Pan African character of the vendors (who welcome bargaining), especially on Fridays when they don traditional garb. Enjoy the array of groovy places at which to refresh and people-watch.
