City of Light

Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.

Head to Sandton City Shopping Centre and The Bryanston Organic and Natural Marketfor plenty of shopping. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, wander the streets of Maboneng Precinct, try to win big at Montecasino, and don't miss a visit to South Western Townships.
