    I was taken on a guided tour of Bo Kapp and given a brief history of the area. The guide herself Faldela was fantastic and very welcoming. Bo Kapp is a beautiful, vibrant colourful place with many of the houses painted in amazing yellows, oranges, purples etc. The malay cooking is brilliant and tastes out of this world and the company is fabulous. I'd highly recommend going on this tour.

    I had a really good time exploring the area with Faldela - although it rained - she made the best of it :-) The food was amazing and the atmosphere was really nice - real and very warming! ★★★★★

    It was a very personal and interesting tour through the beautiful bo-kapp. And a very instructive cooking course, with a good price-performance ratio, to be recommended at any time.
