    If you are searching for a place to take impressive pictures or enjoy a walk surrounded by colorful houses- then this is the place for you.

    Bo-Kaap is an area in Cape Town which is known for its colorful and unique houses, which will definitely put a smile on your face :D
    I personally am always fascinated by pretty exterior design and fancy cities, so this area is definitely unforgettable.

    There were quite a few poor people though, who came up to us and begged for money, so I will recommend to still take extra care of your belongings, even in this doll town.

    Great experience. Very touching. Unsure if this is the correct site (in Langa, CT). Food was great and to see the families working hard to make ends meat was enlightening. Visited in June 2019

    I have just returned to Dubai after spending a week with friends who reside in Newlands, which is part of Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs.

    Newlands itself houses both the International Rugby and Cricket Stadiums, a Brewery, The Kelvin Grove Club, some excellent restaurants and The Vineyard Hotel. Several shopping centres are in the vicinity of this old established residential suburb.

    The Southern Suburbs contain major landmarks such as The University of Cape Town, The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, The Rhodes Memorial, The Groot Schuur Hospital where the Heart Transplant Museum is located, etc.

    Cape Town International Airport is a short drive away, as are some excellent beaches such as Fish Hoek, St. James and Muizenberg.

    Cape Town City Centre is also not too far away although traffic can be an issue during rush hour.

    Although I have visited Cape Town on many occasions over the years, this was the first time I stayed in Newlands / the Southern Suburbs.
