Well compared to NYC (where I see you live) it’s nowhere near as “bustling”. I’d say it’s more like West Coast US. It’s got a very hipster vibe, so there’s tonnes of coffee shops and bars – the nightlife is great. But it’s not as “big city” as, say, Johannesburg. Joburgers call us Slaapstad (“sleepy city” – the Afrikaans name is Kaapstad).
It’s a beautiful place, and the culture here is amazing. But it’s less suits and subways and shouting drivers, and more beaches and craft beer and waterfronts. Without a doubt the “hipster” capital of Africa. So if you’re into good food, coffee, and beer, it’s your kind of place.
