Shopping in Cape Town

Greenmarket Square within the city centre sells hand-crafted African gifts, including wooden masks and near life-size wildlife. The quaint Bo-Kaap area specialises in local beadwork, while the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront mixes classic with cutting-edge international retailers. Shop all day at Canal Walk, Africa's biggest mall, or go window-shopping at Platandia, one of Cape Town's most exclusive diamond shops. On Saturday most street shops close at lunchtime.
