Getting to know some Cape Town neighbourhoods.
Cape Town is one of, if not the most beautiful cities in the world, (our biased opinion) .But what makes Cape Town different from every other beautiful city in the world. We have Table Mountain, yes and stretches of white coastline but there is a whole other side to the mother city that often gets overlooked in your travel magazines. We’re talking about the neighbourhoods.
Take a stroll through Woodstock, on a Saturday afternoon and take in the energetic vibe and all the streets have to offer, stop over and have a look at the arts and crafts ‘hut’ don’t be put off by its appearance, inside you will probably find the best-hidden gems. Woodstock reminds me of that great grandmother you see now and then at family functions, she might be old but she has a certain charm and has a way of putting a smile on your face, just like the charming coloured houses along the streets, and the street music that fills the air as you stroll down the road.
Of course, the Old Biscuit Mill is a must see when you visit Woodstock, it is almost a requirement that when one visits Woodstock, one must step in the Biscuit Mill and sip on a rose water ice tea or some form of craft beer, or else technically your visit did not count.
Bo-Kaap is often featured as a highlight in Cape Town, and with good reason. With houses painted in rainbow pastels. Bo-Kaap is a fan favourite neighbourhood in Cape Town. With its cobblestone streets and historic mosque, it is a great pace to spend an afternoon, not to mention it is a great place to get in touch with your inner travel hipster and get those Instagram photos. #nofilterneeded
