Overall Guide : Incredible diversity! Amazing landscapes and an abundance of African wildlife in various game parks in and around the city! There is a wide variety of accommodation is available from bed and breakfast, guest houses, lodges and hotels. Top quality accommodation... more to suite your budget. Port Elizabeth is a great place for surfing, kite surfing, mountain biking, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling or birding! It can be a little windy - but this is a great value for money city!

Overall rating 6
Overall Guide : It is very boring in PE there is nothing that attracts the visitors. The city has an old building all over. The airport has got one store because it is too small. There is only a casino the people are... more using it to take their families out. Casino is very dangerous to relay on or to take out their stress.
Not to be missed big roads or highways , malls

Overall Guide : It is a family destination not a place if all you want is clubbing. Its great for watersports and the whole outdoor thing. Weather is varied and there are great places to eat that would suit all budgets. I would... more say Addo elephant park is well worth a visit also sundays river where you can canoe and fish. I wouldn't advise the lion park.
