Cape Town is a shoppers’
paradise and has some of the most modern shopping malls and precincts in the world offering a wide range of
merchandise. In true Cape Town diversity you can shop
at street side markets or browse quaint independent
retailers in areas like Kalk Bay to large jewellery
emporiums and designer label stores.
Most shops will accept your international credit card
and traveller’s cheques and nearly all major shopping
centres have foreign exchange bureaus. You can draw
money with your international bank and credit cards
from almost any ATM.
Value Added Tax. When shopping in Cape Town, remember
to retain your tax invoices - you are entitled to a
VAT rebate on departure from South Africa.
As with all our suggestions at Afton Grove we have compiled
