Street maps for the city of Cape Town are available to help people navigate their way around the central business district as well as the surrounding suburbs in the area. Directions are often needed by business people who may not know their way around the city at all or are not quite sure how to get to a specific place. Not everybody has GPS systems installed in their cars so having a physical map in the glove compartment or somewhere else in the vehicle is always going to come in handy to those who need directions frequently in and around the region.
Getting directions from a simple road map for the Cape Town area is something millions of people have used successfully for decades. Finding your way around the suburbs by motor car can prove to be quite a daunting task without the right kind of direction especially when you need to drive up over Table Mountain or around the Twelve Apostles to places like Hout Bay, Noordehoek or Llandudno. It is also important to try and make sure you avoid dangerous areas and suburbs where crime is high and people entering who may not be so “street wise” are in possible danger, especially at night time. The Cape is generally safe but there certainly are a few “no go” areas as with most cities around the world.
Millions of tourists flock to this region of South Africa every year and many of them hire a car to use as a means of getting from a hotel, bed and breakfast or other accommodation to see the sights of the city. Table Mountain, the beaches around the city, the V&A Waterfront, boat trips to Robben Island, Chapmans Peak, Simons Town, these are among some of the most popular tourist attractions that people visit in the region and having street maps for the Cape Town City will help in getting directions to these places.
