Johannesburg is the financial, industrial and cultural giant of South Africa.
Johannesburg is the gateway to Southern Africa with over 50 airlines flying in to O R Tambo International Airport. Tourists are advised to spend at least 2 but if possible 3 or 4 days in Johannesburg. The Apartheid Museum and Soweto are an absolute must if you only have 1 day. Try and be there over a weekend to visit the Rooftop market at the Norwood mall. Otherwise you can visit the market which is permanently located at the Mall in Rosebank.
Getting from O R Tambo International Airport to Johannesburg is really easy and quick using the Gautrain. The Gautrain and its Gaitrain bus service mean that you can stay in very many parts of Johannesburg and have access to public transport.
South Africa’s largest city was built following the discovery of gold in 1886. The area became one of the world’s richest goldfields and home to a fast growing city. Johannesburg is the only city on earth that has been completely built in one century and is not built on a river or by the sea.
Johannesburg is today a vibrant, bustling, multicultural metropolis, which has a lot to offer local and international tourists.
Johannesburg is a city of constant change and its art, culture, entertainment, sport and recreation facilities make it an exciting destination to visit.
