Beautiful Bo Kaap, The Most Picturesque Neighborhood In Cape Town

There are many reasons the colorful Cape Town neighborhood of Bo Kaap is so popular with tourists and photographers — it’s scenic, historic and walkable. Originally settled by Muslims of Cape Malay descent, its mosques, museums, brightly-hued houses and views of Table Mountain make for a perfect afternoon of exploration. Here are a few photos that illustrate the visual feast that is Bo Kaap.
