The Cape Winelands District Municipality (CWDM), in collaboration with their Local Tourism Associations (LTA’s), launched 13 Tourism Town Mobile Apps making it easy for visitors to the Cape winelands to explore thousands of things to do.
This free application for smart phones puts a complete guide to the towns in the palm of any visitor’s hand. Each app enables the user to gain access to information regarding local events, establishments, attractions and tourism activities for that specific area with a personal touch. The 13 LTAs include Stellenbosch 360, Franschhoek Wine Valley, Dwarsriver Tourism, Drakenstein LTA Paarl, as well as Drakenstein LTA Wellington, Worcester Tourism, Breedekloof Wine & Tourism, Wolseley Tourism, Tulbagh Wine & Tourism, Ceres Tourism, Robertson Tourism, McGregor Tourism and Montagu- Ashton Tourism.
This visitor- and tourist-friendly app is available for both iOs and Android. It has an advanced GPS system that provides detailed navigation on its map function that also contains sub-categories of things to do, places to eat, and where to stay, and a calendar of events, that the mobile users will be able to access at a much faster rate while they are on the go. Tourists will be able to check-in, post photos and follow their favourite wineries and establishments. The app also gives access to the smallest businesses that may not have been discovered by visitors in the past, creating some smart enterprise development around tourism.
As part of the launch festivities CWDM, in association with the 13 LTAs, are giving away a one week trip in the Cape winelands with a full itinerary set up, including the best of accommodation, food, wine and activities that the region has to offer. Download the free app, Indigo New Media, with your town of choice, and win.
