Welcome to Cape Town. Many thanks to Hisham for choosing this as a souvenir! The pic on the magnets shows the Table Mountain forms a dramatic backdrop to the city bowl, with its plateau over 1,000 m (3,300 feet) high; it is surrounded by near-vertical cliffs, Devil's Peak and Lion's Head. Sometimes a thin strip of cloud forms over the mountain, and owing to its appearance, it is colloquially known as the "Tablecloth". My friend Yusof went there several (or many??) years ago and he was one of the lucky ones who actually witnessed the tablecloth formation.

Often regarded as one of the world's most beautiful cities because of its geography, Cape Town is one of the most popular South African tourism destinations. Cape Town is the 3rd most populous city in South Africa, forming part of the metropolitan municipality of the City of Cape Town. The centre of Cape Town is located at the northern end of the Cape Peninsula.
