‘Aside from being a landscape paradise, Cape Town is also one of the best cities for architecture lovers’

The most popular snap of Chappies, received love from over 13 000 people.

“I don’t know many cities in the world that can offer the wide array of landscapes and outdoor experiences as Cape Town does,” Suma writes below one image.

While not featured in photographs, Suma also mentions the Cape of Good Hope, Bo-Kaap and Woodstock in passing.

“With mountains gracing every view and hugged by an endless coastline, this city is a stunner,” she adds.
