The Top 7 Places to Visit in Johannesburg

South Africa

Yes, Cape Town is beautiful, but Johannesburg also has its beauty and it’s quite often forgotten or unseen. I decided that I wanted to show you that Johannesburg can also entertain you and that you can have fun here too. I have only mentioned 7 places but there are many places that you can go. There are even places just outside of Johannesburg. Gauteng is beautiful, you just need to know where to look.
