Cape Town, South Africa
Just like God gave Rio de Janeiro a Sugar Loaf Mountain, and man put a huge statue of Christ on top of that city, God gave Cape Town a Table Mountain, and man put a cable car there, to take you to the top.
At the most south-western tip of Africa, the majestic Table Mountain towers over the city in a protective-like manner whilst the street life below bustles with colour and vibrancy.
Side-walk cafes and lively street markets make it an exciting place to spend your days. Not to mention the fine, white, sandy beaches.
Cape Town covers the Cape Peninsula, a mountainous area surrounded by unprecedented natural beauty, many beaches and the Atlantic Ocean.
Property values in here are up from 10% growth per annum in the 1990s to between 20% and 30% growth per annum since 2000.
Current prices compare very favorably with similar properties in other parts of the world.
