The period from October to the end of November is considered the best time to visit Cape Town. During this period tourists will be able to catch the most favorable weather. Budget travellers are recommended to visit the city during the period from April to May. There are not many tourists in Cape Town in these months, and so the rates are the lowest. The period from late May to late July is the rainy season.
Bus remains the most popular form of public transport, but it should be used only by tourists who need to make long distance rides. If you need to make a short ride, taxi will be a better choice.
Do not forget to take a taxi on a special parking only. You will find these parking areas close to all shopping centers, large restaurants and major government agencies. Tourists can also call a taxi by phone. Stopping a free taxi in a street will be very difficult. The cost of a ride should be specified in advance. Not all the cars are equipped with counters.
It is very convenient to travel in the center of the city by bike, but travellers are not recommended to go to remote areas of the city using the two-wheeled transport. Atlantic Tourist Information Centre, Cape Info Africa, Downhill Adventures and Homeland Shuttle & Tours remain the most popular bike rental offices. Tourists should not forget that taking bicycles to trains and buses is prohibited.
