Nice quiet naighbourhood - For people who want to unwind and relax away from the big city and township noise, Observatory is the place to be.

Old part of Cape Town - Observatory is an old part of Cape Town and is a bit dodgy compared to other suburbs. I would not recommend Observatory as a tourist destination.

Observatory - An amazing place to visit. You could pick up wonderful memorabilia from days gone by. Quaint vintage shops and restaurants. Lots of little art shops and studios. Well worth a visit.

Very trendy and busy. The people there never sleep - Really love Observatory. It's centrally located packed with lots of restaurants and bars.
