Bo-Kaap is a historical and colorful suburb situated in the foot of signal hill in Cape Town. The residential area is known for its brightly colored houses that showcase both Georgian and Dutch architectural styles and narrow cobblestone streets.

This colorful place also comes with a colorful history. During sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Dutch imported a number of slaves from Malaysia, Indonesia, and other African countries to Cape Town, and they came to be known as Cape Malays. In 1760, slaves were given the privilege to lease a number of houses in this area, which in turn, the slaves painted in bright colors to express their freedom and happiness.
