Cape Town has a number of great shopping malls. The V&A Waterfront offers the more exclusive designer brands, while Canal Walk is the biggest shopping mall in the Western Cape and one of the biggest in South Africa. For more alternative clothing options, visit Long Street and Kloof Street in the city centre, or for cheaper deals on brand clothing, there are two outlet shopping parks at Sable Square and Access Park. For something a little different, there are a number of flea markets which mainly sell African curios. Some of our favourites are Hout Bay harbour, Hermanus main square and Milnerton market, while Greenmarket Square has the most popular market in town, where you can find a wide range of African folk art, music and clothing. Kalk Bay is home to many antique stores for unique bargains. Make sure to keep all of your receipts, as you can easily claim the VAT back at the airport when you leave South Africa.
