Capetown & The Garden Route - East City, District Six, Woodstock, & Observatory (Chapter)
This is the East City, District Six, Woodstock & Observatory chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cape Town & the Garden Route guidebook.
East of the City Bowl are the empty lots of District Six, the working-class, industrial suburbs that are regenerating, with creative industries, cafes and bars clustered at the East City end. Woodstock is the canvas for striking street art, and a hub for the blooming craft-beer scene, and bohemian Observatory makes a great base for budget travellers.
