It's official. Again! For
the fifth year in a row, the greatest city in the world
has been named as Cape Town! And that's according to
over 90 000 people ¡K
The 2017 Telegraph Travel Awards are
selected according to votes cast by 90 000 readers of
the United Kingdom newspaper.
The paper describes the winning city as "a coastal gem
in the shadow of an iconic mountain, where fine wine
flows and penguins roam. It could only be Cape Town".
Cape Town beat Canada's Vancouver and Japan's Tokyo to
win the coveted travel award. Frustratingly for
Vancouver, it's the fifth year in a row that they've
come second. Tokyo, however, has shot up the chart from
seventh two years ago, to fifth last year and third this
2018 is expected to be an even bigger year for South
Africa's Mother City, as the country celebrates a
century since Nelson Mandela was born.
Other cities in the top 10 include Venice (Italy),
Sydney (Australia) and New York (USA). ¡V Source:
