When I considered going to Johannesburg, majority of the people would say, “Are you insane? Johannesburg is dangerous!”. Well, as is with any city, you have to know where to go, research how to travel around the place, and well, besides having fun, you have to always be aware and careful. There are spots where you can go and there are some where you shouldn’t go and that’s also how it works in Johannesburg. However I have been in Joburg 4 times already and I love “The City of Gold”.
Here you can find my list of TOP 10 things to do and to visit in “The City of Gold”:
1.Enjoy a breathtaking view of Johannesburg on the 50th floor of Carlton Center (tallest building in Johannesburg)
Don´t forget to pin my post:
2.Visit “The Kwa Mai-Mai Traditional Healers Market”, which is known to be the oldest market in Johannesburg
3.Visit “The University of Witwatersrand”, which is one of the most famous universities in South Africa
4.Explore the vibrant student area of Braamfontein (eat yummi food at Neighbourgoods Market, chill at rooftop bar The Beach, and carry on partying at Kitchener´s)
5.Go on a Soweto tour and don´t miss out on visiting Hector Pieterson Memorial and Vilakazi Street (the only street in the world that used to house 2 Nobel Prize winners, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu)
6.Visit the Apartheid Museum and learn about Apartheid and South Africa´s history
7.Watch a cricket game at Bidvest Wanderers Stadium
8. Explore the vibrant neighbourhood of Maboneng (visit Art´s on Main, Market on Main and check out the nice bars and restaurant along Fox Street)
9.Visit Constitution Hill
10.Visit Walther Sisulu Botanical Garden
