After a year of challenges, accolades such as these in addition to the announcement that visa and birth certificate regulations are to be relaxed are encouraging for all our partners in the tourism industry, and we commend our members for the efforts made in ensuring visitors to Cape Town have a memorable experience all year round. We are well-placed to highlight Cape Town as a top travel destination as we head into the high season, Duminy concludes.
