Lonely Planet's "Best in Travel": Cape Town named second best city for 2017!

Cape Town in South Africa has been named 2nd in the "Top Cities" category in Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2017 list. The publication describes the Mother City as follows:
Cape Town's deceptively laid-back folk have been working hard to add cultural and culinary cred to the Mother City's famous natural charms, cementing its reputation as an African city with a global outlook. Local gastronomy is as impressive as Table Mountain’s flat-topped mass, with historic wine estates in every direction, hip markets selling the fruits of the Cape's fertile terrain, and inventive restaurants winning global plaudits. The art and design scene will be given a boost in September by the opening of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), the world's largest museum of contemporary African art and a post-industrial architectural marvel occupying a century-old grain silo.[src.]
