Shopping Centre in Green Point & ­Waterfront

One of the best places to shop for souvenirs in Cape Town, this inventively designed retail market gathers together over 150 tenants representing the cream of Capetonian and South African producers of fashion, arts, crafts and design – there's something here for every pocket. On the upper level is an exhibition space, and a wellness centre offering holistic products and massages.

Many boutiques and craft stores you'll find elsewhere in the city have outlets here, but there are also unique stalls such as Township Guitars (www.townshipguitars.com), which makes and sells all-electric guitars made from oil cans, wood and fishing wire.
