Reviewed 6 August 2012

Look at the pictures and you will see what the attraction of Bo-Kaap is. The whole area is littered with lovely pastel colours and vibrant hues. Worth a look and the area can easily be reached on foot from the centre of town in just a few minutes. Otherwise, it just seemed like a quiet part of town - perhaps a guide would make the area come alive, but for general tourists I would say take a quick look and then move on.

Loved the little brightly painted homes. Interesting shops and restaurants along the way. Suggest taking the Downtown Cape Town Walking Tour with Ursula Stevens. She gives a great narrative of Bo-Kaap and other downtown highlights. Book it at the Tourist Centre.

A vicinity not to be missed because this is the real Cape Town with the traditional life style to be admired

Not sure what else there is to do except see a few small roads of pretty houses. Covered in 10 minutes.
