Cape Town named the most beautiful city in the world

2014-06-03 13:32
Cape Town has (once again) topped a travel list, and this time, the list has been appropriately named “20 of the most beautiful cities in the world."

The list was compiled by Buzzfeed this week and although the site isn’t huge in terms of all things travel, it is quite huge in the online social sphere, so Cape Town being named as the most beautiful city in the world by Buzzfeed is a pretty big deal.

Here's some of what Buzzfeed had to say about Cape Town:

"The mountains of the Cape Peninsula are made of a hard stone found nowhere else on earth and often form sheer cliffs that fall into the cold sapphire colored waters of the Atlantic on the city’s west, and the warm jade colored waters of the Indian on the city’s east".

How lovely?

To take this point further, we've taken to the streets Instagram, for pics that really prove that Cape Town is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

This city has a lot to offer:

Gorgeous drives...

scenic views...

Social and cultural hubs like Woodstock...

The colourful streets in the CBD...

and, of course, the people of Cape Town
Other cities that made the list include:

2. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

3.Istanbul, Turkey

4.Paris, France

5. Rome, Italy
