For those who like to combine their tourism with a bit of healthy exercise, the Cape Town Gun Run is one of the most beautiful and gruelling half marathons in the world.
Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the Gun Run's course is designed to show its attributes to maximum effect.
The run starts off on Beach Road and then winds its way to the V&A Waterfront, through the central business district, along Sea Point promenade and then all the way back to the picturesque Green Point Stadium for the last lap.
This race was first held in 1993 and since then has become one of the most popular half-marathons in the world, attracting runners from Europe, North America and the Mediterranean.
Nestled below the famous Table Mountain, Cape Town is one of the world's most famous cities and a mecca for tourists.
