Controversial, predictable, surprising—maybe. But inspirational? Always. No matter where T+L readers rank the World’s Best Cities, the list keeps us planning, going, and dreaming every year.

No. 9 Cape Town, South Africa

2 of 11

Score: 88.271

Forget everything you thought you knew about Africa. Cape Town is cutting-edge, artsy, and buzzing with energy. There are few places in the world where you can exercise your shopping skills (head to Woodstock’s Neighborgoods Market on Saturday mornings for Afrikaans jerky and silk-and-leather sandals), take off on a safari, or indulge in world-famous cuisine all in one weekend. Atlantic-facing Clifton Beaches are the South Beach of South Africa, known for enormous natural boulders tumbling into the sea, pristine sunbathing conditions, and the capoeira dancers that entertain crowds with fire and African drums on Monday nights.
