Often considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world by its geography, Cape Town is the most popular tourist destination in the country. Originally developed as a supply station for Dutch ships traveling to East Africa, India and Asia, over two hundred years before the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. The arrival of the Dutch sailor Jan van Riebeeck on April 6, 1652 marked the establishment of the first European settlement in sub-Saharan Africa.
