For those who prefer being above ground, visit the city's glittering choice of jewellery stores. More
  • Newtown Cultural Precinct, Johannesburg

    The Newtown Cultural Precinct, in downtown Johannesburg, has a distinctly cosmopolitan vibe; and underlying its trendy coffee shops, restaurants, art galleries and clubs is the same avant-garde attitude that made it a hot-bed of protest theatre, music and poetry during the apartheid era. More
