I have seen numerous other malls sprout in the Cape town, during the past 12 years. But canal walk is still unique. Many hotels and condos in the neighborhood, just outside city centre, what a versatile mixture of outlets, CW is just special.

You will not know its size till you are inside. It's a great experience super eloquently layed-out and a great experience of shopping with almost everything you need under one roof. Great variety of clothing shops, banks, grocery shops, it is a complete SUPER CENTRE perhaps the only thing missing is a schools and hospital

I liked the shops selling quality goods and the late night closing of shops. As I had travelled on business I could do my business from 9am to 5pm and still find the shops open till 9pm.

The mall is very huge and it covers all the good brands under one roof. You can easily spend one full day here shopping. There is one pastry shop in the mall which serves amazing pastry you should try. The signboards and facilities are very clear and helpful to explore this shopping centre

We saw a lot of interesting National shops but many international shops as well. The food court was fun for the younger members of the party and the parking was good

Still a good mall for shoppertainment. This mall is starting to creep up toward being high end in terms of choice of stores. It used to be a family mall, now become more for the middle to upper class and tourists industry. The toilets a still a hygiene risk.

Every conceivable shop you could want. From speciality shops, to major department stores, to African tourism souvenirs arcades.
