Matthew’s day using the Cable Car
It was the night before in Cape Town, and not knowing whether the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway would be open the next day, Matthew used his phone to check whether the Cableway would be open the next day. Anticipating this, he searched “Cape Town Weather” because the weather in Cape Town dictates that the Cable Car is either open on a given day or closed due to high winds, rain, and or adverse weather conditions. Great! It said, “Sunny, clear skies with moderate wind and 30 degrees”.
That means the Cable Car would be open. 다음, Matthew would need to find out if it would be sunny the whole day or raining at any point during the day. If it was raining, then a ticket expiring for morning or afternoon had to be used in time.
Table Mountain offers two types of tickets, morning and afternoon. So Matthew checked both times to see when the weather in Cape Town was at it’s most appropriate time to buy the tickets online for the Table Mountain Cableway in advance.
Morning tickets are valid till 1:00 pm, 그래서 그는 줄이 길어지기 전에 아침에 티켓을 먼저 얻을 수 있다고 생각했습니다., 아니면 지금 온라인으로 구매하여 대기열에서 시간을 절약 할 수 있습니다..
Matthew가 손님과 함께 있었기 때문에, 그는 Table Mountain Tickets에서 온라인으로 티켓을 구매하기로 결정했습니다.. 방문자에게 티켓 정보가 풍부하게 제공되는 유일한 온라인 장소.
티켓 구매 과정이 순조로 웠습니다, 매튜가해야 할 일은 예정된 날짜를 작성하는 것뿐입니다, 시각, PayPal을 사용하여 온라인 결제, 신용 카드를 사용한 안전한 결제.
이제 결제가 이루어졌습니다., Matthew는 티켓이 주문되고 있다는 확인을 받고 싶었습니다.. 운 좋게도 티켓은 티켓을 조달 중이며 내에서 제공된다는 메시지와 함께 제공됩니다. 24 시간. Great, 그는 생각했다, 하지만 카드는 내일 용이어야합니다, 케이블카 시간에 티켓을 어떻게 얻을 수 있나요? 이때 Table Mountain Tickets가 티켓 바코드가 포함 된 확인 이메일을 거의 즉시 보냈습니다..
손에 티켓, Matthew는 케이블카가 안전하다는 것을 알 수 있도록 자신의 케이블카 패스를 인쇄하고 싶었습니다.. 인쇄 된 패스는 전화기가 죽거나 고장 났을 때 긴급 상황이 발생할 수 있기 때문에 전화기 패스보다 낫습니다..
매튜에게는 인쇄소를 찾는 것이 쉬웠습니다., 이 늦은 시간에도, 그의 호텔에서 티켓을 인쇄 할 수 있습니다., 다음날 패스를받을 수있는 편리한 방법으로. 이 탐험을 기대, 그는 흥분해서 티켓을 주머니에 넣고 잠자리에 들기로 결정했습니다.. 바로 다음날, he woke up early to beat the queue at Table Mountain. After a well-rested sleep, he packed his bag with lots and lots of supplies. Water, a light jacket and sunscreen were a must, as well as a hat to keep the sun off of his eyes. The camera phone was excellent, so he just took it along.
With a backpack in hand, he headed out the door to go to Table Mountain. Uber arrived reasonably quickly after he opened his phone up outside to order a regular taxi ride. The driver arrived within minutes, and he greeted him to the car as they confirmed the destination, “Table Mountain,” they both agreed. Matthew, wanting to establish, said, “Aerial Cableway.” The driver nodded.
Heading there was not long, maybe 20 minutes from Cape Town City Centre. There was even a part that passed by the Lion’s Head and signals hill turn-off. That was easy! Now for the hard part, the driver said he was not from Cape Town, so Matthew hoped that he would know where to get off for the Cable Car. 짐바브웨 드라이버는 케이프 타운 및 기타 북아프리카 국가에서 표준입니다., Matthew는 며칠 전에 공항 셔틀 운전사로부터 배웠습니다.. 주시하려면, Matthew는 Google Maps to Table Mountain Aerial Cableway로 스마트 폰을 보관했습니다.. Kloof Nek Road에서 Table Mountain Road가 왼쪽으로 향하는 곳에서 Cableway가 1km 더 내려 가기 때문에 찾기 쉬웠습니다.. 그가 도착했을 때, Table Mountain Aerial Cableway는. 그만큼 7:30 직원 케이블카가 떠 났어요, and he was left as the Lower Aerial Cableway wondering what he should do. There was a ticket office and a sign for the Red Bus, so next, he looked for other symbols. “Tickets Office,” there was a sign in the distance, but as soon as he could see, there was another sign. “With tickets” 과 “Without tickets.” The queue was getting long, and he assumed it would be full in another hour, so he left for the tickets cue that said: “with tickets.” That was the right choice because in another half an hour the ticket queue was full. There were so many people that cars and hordes of visitors flocked to the Lower Aerial Cableway.
Cape Town that month had experienced an influx in visitors due to the publicity of Table Mountain’s international status as a New 7 Wonder of Nature and it being a warm sunny day without clouds. Matthew had read that some days the cloud covers Table Mountain in what is known as the “Table Cloth,” suitable name, but today it was bright and with an excellent reason. It was a dry season.
The dry season is ten months out of the year, so Matthew thought it would be an excellent time to plan a visit to Cape Town then. The wet season months were June-July, not a superb season if someone was looking to be in Cape Town, whether on work or holiday.
With that in mind, he set off as one of the first passengers on the newly renovated Table Mountain Cable Cars. Seventy passengers loaded up the cable car to its full capacity before announcing, “stay clear of the doors, please.” Doors closed, and he was up. 4 ½ minutes later, he reached the top of the Cable Car in what was a spectacular round-trip with the floor of the cable car rotating a full 360 Degrees. All directions provided vantage points not seen in any other way in Cape Town except for a helicopter tour. That means this ticket gave value for money! A card for less than the cost of a helicopter tour with more view and time at the top than any other in Cape Town.
