Bo Kaap Reviews
More info about Bo Kaap
Whimsical, bright, eccentric, colourful and diverse; these are the words that come to mind when you arrive in the Bo-Kaap of Cape Town. Formally known as the Malay quarter, the Bo-Kaap is situated on the slopes of Signal Hill and serves as the pinnacle of Malay culture in the Mother City. The Bo-Kaap is known for its bright houses, cobblestone streets and flavourful history.
A drive through the Bo-Kaap will make you feel like a character in Alice in Wonderland. There are so many bright colours and odd shapes it’s hard to not be delighted. Many of the houses are a mixture of Cape Dutch and Georgian architectural designs giving the neighbourhood a sense of uniformity which somehow defies its apartheid origins. There is so much to do in the Bo-Kaap; countless restaurants, sightseeing and of course a visit to the famous Iziko Bo-Kaap Museum is sure to keep you busy!
