When the word Tourism and Cape Town are put in the same sentence, names that come to mind or become the topic for discussion are Hout Bay, Consantia, Bo Kaap and Atlantic Seaboard, rightly so because of their abundance of attractions, both man-made and natural.
But on very few occasions will you hear the name City Bowl in the conversation and not many people have even heard of it before. In fact, no one even plans to visiting Cape Town and thinks of City Bowl as his or her main destination, with the previous mentioned areas being the obvious preferred choices.
But truth is, one can hardly blame tourists for sidelining City Bowl, not much about this beautiful area of Cape Town is available online making it difficult for tourists to find it as a suitable choice when searching on the internet.
