A Cape Town neighborhood known for its vibrantly colored buildings, Bo-kaap remains mostly residential in nature, enchanting tourists with its narrow, cobblestone streets.

Take a relaxing walk through the district or enjoy the scenery from a cafe--either way, don't forget to take some memorable photographs of the striking neighborhood.
