See the city

City Sight Seeing bus
This is an awesome way to see the city - provided it's not too windy, and not too rainy. In fact, the optimal weather is sunny and windless - that way you're able to enjoy the hop-off spots to their full.

The bus leaves from the V&A Waterfront, just outside the aquarium. As you can see from the front of the bus, this is the "Blue Mini Peninsula Tour" which basically traverses the city, takes a drive over Kloof Nek, down to Camps Bay, and along the coast back towards Sea Point, ending back where you started at the V&A Waterfront.

Do this trip if you have half a day available of if you'd prefer to spend a long time at hop-off spots - you're sure to enjoy it. As an alternative you could take the day-long tour that goes via Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, over to Hout Bay, and back along the coast past Camps Bay, Sea Point, also returning to the V&A Waterfront.

An old old bus

And old old bus
Remember commuting in old buses like this one? No? Well, me neither, thankfully. :)

Have you used the shiny-new MyCiti buses? I unfortunately haven't had the opportunity as they don't yet operate out in the northern suburbs, where I live. The only time I've traveled in a similar one to the MyCiti buses was on a trip to Sydney. Well, not "on a trip to Sydney", I mean in Sydney, of course. ;)
