Against the backdrop of Table Mountain, gaze upon this fascinating corner of candy colors that line the streets of the tip of Africa.
Like multicolored matchboxes, Bo-Kaap is stacked with lime-green, hot-pink and tangerine-orange houses. This unique hotbed of history and culture is draped over Signal Hill, above the wild drama of central Cape Town.
Through your Ray-Ban Chromance lenses, soak up every one of the sharpened colors of Bo-Kaap – and then soak up its bright and bold flavors, too. Head to the monthly food and craft market and sample traditional dishes such as samoosas and koeksisters, or roll up your sleeves and take a colorful, spice-packed Cape Malay cooking class.
