About Cape Town Shopping

For the international Tourist, shopping in Cape Town is relatively inexpensive due to the favourable exchange rate and comparatively low production costs.

Did you know? Although often viewed as the safari or game paradise of the world, South Africa also has plenty to offer in terms of world-class shopping.

For the Tourist, jewellery is particularly inexpensive and as many of South Africa's most talented goldsmiths and jewellery designers live in Cape Town, shopping for their sought after creations will delight those looking for serious bling. Textiles are well priced, in particular leather goods, sports and outdoor wear. The same applies to art works, antiques, books and wine.

Most Cape Town shops will accept your international credit card and traveller’s cheques and nearly all major Cape Town shopping centres have foreign exchange bureaux. You can draw money with your international bank and credit cards from almost any ATM (Automated Banking Machines) which are plentiful in Cape Town.
