Johannesburg in detail


Jo'burg has countless bland malls dotted around the suburbs catering to all your chain-store needs. For something bespoke, try the boutiques and small galleries in Maboneng or one of the city's excellent markets, many of which mix up opportunities to graze on or take away artisan food as well as indulge in some fashion, accessory or souvenir consumption.

Don't Miss: Jo'burg's Best Markets

Between Wednesday and Sunday somewhere in Jo'burg there's a market being held where food vendors dish out savoury and sweet treats. You'll usually find a smattering of arts, crafts and fashion vendors at these weekly markets, too, which act more as a reason to hang out with friends while grazing rather than a serious shopping expedition.
