You can't miss this lively neighborhood on the slopes of Signal Hill: its vivid rainbow colors can be spotted from a mile away. Cape Town's historic Cape Malay community has long called Bo-Kaap home, and their charming row houses are all painted bright shades of pink, blue, and yellow. Spend an afternoon here taking pictures and lunching on local Cape Malay treats at Biesmillah—the syrupy koeksisters are a must. A visit to the small Bo-Kaap Museum on Wale Street helps give context to the community's history and culture.
