Capetonians love to eat and their multi-cultural roots means that the local cuisine is a melting pot of flavors and styles, from Cape Dutch to French to Indian, to name just a few. Fish and chips and braais (barbecues) aside, be sure to try these five local Cape Town dishes: http://ailo.la/sl08

Everything you need to know about sharks in Cape Town

Anyone who has ever seen the 1970s cult classic movie Jaws lives in fear of being attacked by a shark every time they enter the sea. While the threat of shark attacks in Cape Town is a reality, with great whites, bull and tiger sharks populating the waters off the coast, it’s important to remember that sharks kill an average of about five humans a year (while humans kill millions of sharks annually). Sharks may be fierce predators but they’re not out to kill us. Attacks often happen when we're mistaken for seals (just think how a surfer paddling on his board looks from below). You can still make the most of Cape Town’s beautiful beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters and amazing surf spots; you just need to be shark smart. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you hit the beach: http://ailo.la/gtpn

Cape Town is a sprawling metropolis and the distances (and safety concerns) don’t make it easy to get around on foot. While there are plenty of transportation options, some are more efficient than others. Here’s our guide to the different modes of transport and how to use them: http://ailo.la/waxa

Here’s a round up of our favorite places for a good frothy beer: http://ailo.la/41c #craftbeer #southafricanbeer #craftbeerbars #breweries #hops #beer #capetown #southafrica http://ow.ly/i/FkknH http://ow.ly/i/Fkkoq http://ow.ly/i/FkknM

There’s a reason why Cape Town is nicknamed the ‘Mother City.’ Fossils have been found that date back 5 million years and some of the earliest communities on record are believed to have lived in the area. In fact, one researcher went so far as to propose that the very first human lived there after the discovery of 117,000-year-old fossilized footprints. To give you a bit more background to this historical city and help you impress the locals with your extensive knowledge, here’s a brief history and some fun facts about Cape Town: http://ailo.la/xj4v #history #capetownhistory #independence #afrikaans #wine #diamonds #capetown #southafrica

The Capetonians love a good braai (BBQ) and their diet is very meat and fish heavy so being a vegetarian or even vegan in Cape Town can sometimes be a challenge. However in recent years, a wave of new restaurants and cafes have opened up that promote healthier living and cater to the meat-free and dairy-free diets with some innovative offerings. Here’s our round up of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in the city: http://ailo.la/w0j2 #vegetarian #vegan #vegetarianrestaurants #veganrestaurants #healthyeating #eatingout #dining #capetown #southafrica http://ow.ly/i/E9kaU http://ow.ly/i/E9kaQ http://ow.ly/i/E9kcX http://ow.ly/i/E9kaH http://ow.ly/i/E9kaE
