South Africa is another country on the long list of countries that witnessed the surge in Muslim visitors that made its tourism more Muslim-friendly. Cape Town does have a sizable Muslim population. The Bo-Kaap area, which was known as the Malay quarter, continues to be household for many Muslims. This highlight of this area is the rainbow-like houses and the Mosques. The Bo Kaap museum showcase the contribution of Muslim immigrants in Cape Town and it is absolutely worth a visit. To be crowned as ‘Best food city in the world’ sometime back, is not an understatement. The amount of Halal restaurants serving these traditional food have been on the rise, making it possible to relish local food. A key attraction is Table Mountain, a flat-topped highland and bulging landmark overlooking the city. It is opined as one of the seven wonders of nature. On top, the panoramic views of Cape Town from the various directions are incredible. On the bottom of the Mountain is the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, which is one of the most beautiful gardens in Africa and is fitting for eat al fresco. Robben Island is where Nelson Mandela was confined to prison for eighteen of the twenty Seven years. A ferry shuttles to the island where guided tours of the historic island are available. The Castle of Good Hope is the oldest colonial building in the country. Constructed in the 1600’s as a defensive fort exhibits live cannon-firing demonstrations. Some call it Shopping, while some call it retail therapy, the V&A Waterfront is a shopping area situated in the Cape Town harbor, and occupies an aquarium, a giant wheel, activities for kids, boat rides where you can experience seals. This area also has a many of Halal restaurants.
