Hey Charles, what are the coolest things to do in Johannesburg?
Jo’burg is great for its social life, for food and cocktails, for hanging out and just soaking up the environment. On Saturdays, check out the Neighbourgoods Market in Braamfontein. It shows off the city’s creativity, with amazing food and cool fashion. It’s a part of the regeneration of the city. In 1995 and 1996, Johannesburg was a no-go area; today we have so many vibrant places that showcase our spirit.
Tell us about the street art in Johannesburg
Murals are how artists showcase their skills and how the city shows off its culture. But before, during the dark time under Apartheid, art was a way that people communicated when they had their freedoms restricted. Today, the centre of the art scene is Maboneng, which is one of the most successful regeneration projects in the world. You’ve got galleries, boutiques, amazing bars and restaurants like Pata Pata.
