Searching for People living in Johannesburg to advice me for my trip


I am Sharona, I need to travel to Johannesburg soon. I have never gone there and I will definitely be pleased to have someone to guide me for housing, place to eat, visit, etc.

Thank you in advance for your response.

eager to hear from you all..


Hello Sharona and welcome to :cheers:

While waiting for members to tip in, I invite you to browse through threads of the Johannesburg forum to gather some informations.


Hi Sharona,

Where in Johannesburg are you visiting?


Hi Tina I will be around Sandton City..
Thanks for replying :)

I love places with lots of art & culture and you should definitely visit Maboneng (Chill at Uncle Merve's) &in  Braamfontein and have cocktails at The Living Room, have the best Nanchos in town at the Smokehouse & Grill , and visit Neighbourgoods Market (Saturday & Sunday).  Sandton you can eat at Doppio Zero or Tashas and see the Michaelengolo Towers, Nelson Mandela Square.

Mellville (close to Rosebank) is a nice place to bar hop at night (7th Avenue) thats the name of the street with bars on both sides of the road, if you are into clubbing and all. During the day you can check out 27 Matchboxes, a mall in Mellville and have cronuts or eat at the Turkish Restaraunt there.

You could hop on the Gautrain from Sandton and go all the way to Hatfield or drop off in Pretoria and sight see. You could also drop off in Rosebank and check out the Zone & Rosebank Mall and have coffee at Starbucks & buy traditional African things at the Rosebank Craft Market.

You can also do Goldreef City & Monte Casino

Soweto? You can hop on a sightseeing Tour bus and tour Soweto

Places to stay really depend on your budget:-)

I hope i have helped a bit.

Oh thank you Tina..

Can you send me a private message please..

I am not able to send right now.

I will like to ask you some more questions :)

Of course if you can...

Thanks for your precious help :)

Sure, check your messages
