Simon’s Town and Cape Point in the spotlight in latest tourism video

Simon’s Town

Cape Town Tourism showcases more of the spectacular natural and cultural experiences in the city, along with some history; from penguins, whales and ostriches to the graceful ships of the naval port, Simon’s Town and Cape Point come to life in this video.

The goal of the Love Cape Town Neighbourhoods video series is to tap into a global “travel like a local” trend that sees travellers wanting to have immersive experiences in the places they go to, so visiting hidden gems that tourists wouldn’t necessarily know about and enjoying interacting with locals. A video series allows you to get a taste for the city, and it’s also available internationally, so that’s a benefit.

Neighbourhoods have been selected that are either already popular with visitors or ones with great potential, with interesting places to see and fun experiences to be had. In tourism, storytellers and local characters are an essential part of the experience, so the medium of video allows locals to give a snapshot of their own stories.

A guidebook can’t offer the same intimate experience as these videos, which offer a dynamic way to showcase local businesses and the kinds of things visitors would love to see and do. What’s important is that visitors are researching where to go by going online, so the videos literally place Cape Town in the hands of potential visitors via their devices.

Take a look at the video below and see all the great things they have to offer. Previously Cape Town Tourism created videos for Woodstock, Khayelitsha, Thec, Mitchells Plain, Kalk Bay, Constantia and Langa to name a few.
