V&A Waterfront

The V&A (Victoria & Alfred) Waterfront is the culmination of a long-term project undertaken to breathe new life into the historical dockland of the city. Although some Capetonians deem the Waterfront too "mallish," it apparently remains South Africa’s most popular attraction—probably because currency exchange rates overwhelmingly favor the majority of recognized foreign currencies over the rand. Expensive apartments have been built at the marina, and hundreds of shops, movie theaters, restaurants, and bars share quarters in restored warehouses and dock buildings, all connected by pedestrian plazas and promenades. A major plus is that it's clean, safe, and with massive under- and over-ground parking promenades, car-free.
