A single mother of a 5-year-old, Mary was planning on coming to Cape Town to see Table Mountain. The trip would be a long 16 hours from Ireland. That made her even more nervous because her baby was only 5 years old a the time. She started searching online for things to do in Cape Town and came across Table Mountain National Park, only a 20 minutes drive from Cape Town City Centre. That finding made her excited, she wondered how she was going to ascend the 330 million years old mountain in time for the morning with her baby. 5-year-olds take time to get organized – or so she thought. Waiting on her plans to form a concrete idea, she took the initiative to buy Table Mountain tickets online as a bundled pass.
Her first choice of Table Mountain tickets was the website found here at TableMountainTickets.com because there was so much information on the Cable Car available, including Aerial Cableway, 小时, 次, cost, and how to get there for 2020. 门票包括指南和其他信息，如果她没有在Google.com上研究“桌山门票”，她将不会事先知道。. 她很聪明, 她只有几天的时间不知道如何买票; 该网站提供了所有数据，供您选择是现在购买还是以后购买. 开普敦天气变化迅速, 这就是为什么她选择购买, 考虑到据称接下来几天会下雨, 她想等一下. 那天早晨实际上是晴天, 但即使预报说下雨, 她听说开普敦一天四个季节. 可能令人兴奋, 玛丽想在开普敦天气晴朗的时候买票.
在观察开普敦天气之后, 她买了票 3 她到达开普敦后的几天. 即使早晨下雨, 1毫米的雨没有使她晕倒, 她观察到开普敦天气迅速变化的前一天. 桌山拥有自己的气候, 而且因为她一直住在山腰上，可以欣赏滨水区的景色, 魔鬼峰, 和开普敦中心区, 她选择用耳朵玩，看看当天的天气. 三天后，她早上好，去开普敦参观缆车, 天气尽可能好, 她选择在早上使用桌山门票. 通行证有效期自 8:30 我要 1:00 下午, 这时她需要为下午的缆车购买一张新的桌山门票. Morning tickets were not valid after 1:00 pm anyways – she thought so better to use it in the morning while it’s still fresh, and the line to the Aerial Cableway is shorter.
Her baby was ready at 7:00 am, and it only took a few minutes by Uber to reach the Lower Aerial Cableway, she searched on Google.co.za the night before. Also, online was available information on the opening times of the Cable Car, which she would not have known otherwise if she did not search “Table Mountain tickets.” The job was done, and she and her five years old boarded the cable car with the electronic tickets that they had received the night before. It only took 24 hours for her to receive the tickets by email, but she didn’t check because she had been so busy with things like Boulders Beach and the penguins of Simons Town. The previous day she was shopping at the Waterfront and looking for something to buy for her five-year-old, including stuffed toys and other souvenirs at shops like the PnP market.
The Upper Aerial Cableway was busy, 她发现自己面对许多人, 所有的人都有使用缆车票登上桌山空中索道的想法. 他们在那里拍照留念，做着和她一样的事情, 只是她更加了解缆车的时间，并且知道在人群山桌山的门票对她的回程有效之前要提早离开，所以她迟迟不会去 10:00 am. 在这之后, 人群聚集, 而且她在返回桌山的旅程中会有所延迟. Her five-year-old was well behaved the whole way. After Table Mountain, Mary wanted to skype call her family and friends in Ireland, so she set up a phone call with the sim card that she had purchased at Vodacom the night before at V&A Waterfront. The 4g connection was kind enough to host an HD video call from the Lower Aerial Cable Car using their Wifi. Free Wifi was available at the Lower Aerial Cableway, which made it easy for Mary to host a free video call to her family in Ireland. She stopped at the City Sightseeing bus stop at Table Mountain to show her family the road to Signal Hill and Lions Head, as well as Table Mountain North Face and the Cable Car. The family was shocked at how Table Mountain, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, could host an Aerial Cableway almost 1km up in the sky. Since it was around 10:00 am, Mary decided to go back to her hotel with her five years old to have brunch at the buffet section. Mary was wondering before her trip where to stay in Cape Town, and she found a cozy place nestled on the slopes of Tafelburg with Booking.com. It was at a steal of a price because Mary had planned her trip off-season, much cheaper than it would have been during Cape Town summer months, December to January. Hosting visitors during this time would be harder as locals on Airbnb find it challenging to keep up with the demand for accommodation in Cape Town. Best that Mary had booked her stay for the off-season months!
