“Life in the burbs”
Review of Southern Suburbs

Southern Suburbs
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Cape Town's Southern Suburbs are often knocked as being a bit quite and boring but living here I can assure you they are not!! You have a constant breath taking view of the back of Table Mountain and vineyards, restaurants and excellent shopping. Come and see!

I lived in a large old house in the quiet Southern Suburbs from May-July 2012. The houses in the area are beautiful during the day and there are some decent restaurants and grocery stores nearby. I'd recommend Rondebosch Commons and Liesbeek Parkway for running or biking. Newlands Stadium is a fun place to see a rugby match. I did feel sort of trapped out here since it's not safe to walk to the nearby towns at night and we're about a R70-120 cab ride from the city and other major attractions.

An attractive part of CT but it's just a suburb… not sure there's much to visit…? It's like going to Surrey in the UK… ??
