Must see tourist attraction. 6m bronze statue of Nelson Mandela is a centrepiece for taking photos. Good dining places and restaurants serving local and continental dishes all around, overlooking the square. Huge mall where one can easily get lost if one is not familiar with the layout. Hours and hours of shopping due to the availability of many items. Convenient for large families or those with children.
Very clean relaxed beautiful busy place. I would go there anyday. I love the fact that they don't allow people to smoke everywhere. Quite helpful for some of us with allergies. The security is top notch the security guards are on top of their game. They make it look really cool to be a security detail🙂
