Let's admit it, when it comes to choosing a travel destination, value for money is definitely one of the key decisive elements we all look at; it means we can stay longer, do more activities, eat more food, drink more drinks and maybe throw in a bit of luxury for good measure. Like so many other people, before I actually visited the country, I was under the impression that South Africa would be quite expensive. I have no idea why I thought that, but I did. And I was so wrong.. South Africa is cheap. And I don't mean you-will-spend-most-of-your-hard-earned-holiday-hugging-a-dirty-toilet-bowl kind of cheap, but great-value-and-phenomenally-inexpensive kind of cheap. For example, at a top quality restaurant on the waterfront in Cape Town we set ourselves a challenge -- how much could we get for the equivalent of 30 Australian dollars? Well.... How does eight entrée-sized dishes, a dessert platter, a strawberry daiquiri and a coffee sound? Pretty damn good? And we're talking top quality food here. Entries to tourist attractions, including tours were around $5, beers between $1 and $3, cocktails between $2 and $5... and these are tourist prices. Definitely one of the planet's best destinations if you are looking for value for money!
