8 reviews of Bo-Kaap (Malay Quarter)

E.Sonia Requejo Salces

Worth a visit

Bo-Kaap is a seventeenth century Muslim district in the oldest area of Cape Town. It means "above Cape" in Afrikaans, referring to the location, high on the slopes of Signal Hill. The low houses are painted in bright pastel colours, quite different from the colonial architecture that is more prominent in other suburbs. There's a spectacular cultural diversity on display here; the Malays were the first occupants, but not the only ones. A charming, safe neighbourhood that's well worth visiting.
