Bo-Kaap Cape Town  South Africa
The Bo-Kaap was one of the few Cape Town neighborhoods to escape apartheid's bulldozers—the cluster of bright buildings, once known as the Malay Quarter, housed many of the slaves who worked for the 17th-century Dutch colonialists. You can also see some of the oldest, most beautiful mosques in the country here, including the Auwal Mosque, on Dorp Street. Upscale shops have been moving in lately, but don't miss one of the originals, the Atlas Trading Company, a spice merchant. To go back in time, explore the Bo-Kaap Museum, furnished like the house of a typical 19th-century Muslim family.
