Cape Town has quite a few huge shopping malls like in the US. As the residential areas don’t have many shops and people are used to driving, the shopping experience for food, surf shops, hairdressers, restaurants and movies is mostly taking place at the malls.
While the new construction of the Milnerton Mall is making very slow progress, only 8 minutes drive away (half way to Table View) the Paddocks Mall is a great place to shop.
In Table View the larger Bay Side Mall is around 15 minutes away.
Fashion and movie lovers should also check out Cavendish Square which is about 25 minutes away.
People who prefer to go into the city centre can get to the famous V&A Waterfront within 20 minutes drive.
