Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Kick off your visit on the 8th (Sun): take in the waterfront activity at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and then head off the coast to Robben Island. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Boulders Beach and then get great views at Cape of Good Hope.

To see where to stay, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Cape Town trip builder.

Los Angeles, USA to Cape Town is an approximately 29-hour flight. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Cape Town due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Los Angeles in October: high temperatures in Cape Town hover around 73°F and lows are around 53°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
