  • I love the way the old buildings have been given a new energy, bringing life back into a very dismal area. Great little food zones. Vibey on the weekend  more »
  • Many street stalls with souvenirs. Relatively normal-looking shops and restaurants. Pretty corners, e.g. an indoor food market or a shady courtyard where you can sip smoothies or similar. However, the sense of security was limited in the hustle and bustle of a Sunday afternoon. On the one hand a good idea to make a part of the city suitable for tourists, on the other hand a hot world is chewed up and one or two street corners further on, where there is no more security, "rages" the real and uncomfortable Johannesburg, which is really high contrast and strange. You have to be able to deal with it and like it.
