We are total suckers for any Cape Town travel video that showcases our beloved city. When we came across the amazing Expedia Cape Town Vacation Travel Guide, we just had to share it with you! From the YouTube video, here’s what they had to say about this video: “We sent one of our star cameramen back to his old hometown for this shoot, and when we received the footage we were blown away. Not only are the shots spectacular, he returned with three times as much footage as usual! Despite out best efforts to cull shots and limit the video to the usual eight to ten-minute run time, our writer, composer and editor were so seduced by both the colors and stories of Cape Town, they decided to let this one run out to almost twenty minutes. So here it is, our longest video ever. We hope you’ll be as inspired by the richness and rhythms of Cape Town as we were.”
After watching this beautifully filmed video, we are even more inspired by the Mother City than ever before. Have a watch and you will soon see what we mean!
