Belfast is the largest city and capital of Northern Ireland with a history dating back to the 19th century.
The city boasts the title of the birthplace of the Titanic ship and the home base of HBO's Game of Thrones series. In remembrance of the tragedy that took place in 1912 the world's largest RMS Titanic museum was opened in Belfast in 2012 just in time for the 100th anniversary.
With such a diverse history it is no wonder the museum won the World's Leading Visitor Attraction (World Travel Awards, 2016). Belfast does not shy away from their troubled past, instead celebrates how far they have come, something all of us can implement in our own lives.
Take a tour of the nine galleries, the Titanic Belfast tour tickets go for about R142 - R319 or go to a music bar to experience some traditional Belfast music.
