Cape Town in Top 10 party cities worldwide

More of what we already know, but if you’re a tourist then by all means enlighten your bad self.

Cape Town,South Africa has cracked the nod as one of the top 10 cities in the world to party, according to Lonely Planet  (the largest travel guide book and digital media publisher in the world).

In a new guide, 1000 Ultimate Experiences , the good folks over at Lonely Planet have listed the World’s Top 10 party cities and our neck of the woods landed in 7th place.

Here’s the list:

  1. Belgrade, Serbia
  2. Montreal, Canada
  3. Buenos Aires, Argentina
  4. Dubai, UAE
  5. Thessaloniki, Greece
  6. La Paz, Bolivia
  7. Cape Town, South Africa( yes please)
  8. Baku,Azerbaijan
  9. Aukland , New Zealand
  10. Tel Aviv, Israel

This what the Lonely Planet had to say about us:


With the 2010 World Cup bringing a global audience to South Africa, the partying will only get harder as travellers converge on a city already well known for nightlife. Luxuriate on some of the world’s best beaches by day and kick back under the moonlight at suave cocktail bars by night. Two hours east, in the Indian Ocean, lies the elegant beach village of Mossel Bay, with more great beaches and chic flair. Visitors must try some of the wines crafted by South Africa’s world-renowned vintners, either at a Cape Town bar or at one of several wineries nearby.[]

Not very convincing i must say..not sure how Mossel Bay fits in, but we still cracked a nod hey and thats good enough for moi.

Good times.
