Sandton - Shopper's Delight

Johannesburg is known to be the heart of South Africa, and inside Johannesburg there is a district that acts as pacemaker: Sandton. Once a district of small farms and affluent homes, Sandton has evolved into a home for the upper-class and a significant financial centre. Major financial groups and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange can be found in Sandton, as well as a number of attractions and activities that have made this district extremely popular.

Two of the most well known shopping centers in Johannesburg are located in Sandton. The Rosebank Mall and Sandton City are constantly buzzing with shoppers, investors and businessmen who prefer to have business meetings and lunches at these trendy centers. Nelson Mandela Square is located adjacent to Sandton City and is surrounded by world class hotels and restaurants, and is a renowned landmark in South Africa. The Roof-Top Market at the Rosebank Mall offers visitors over five hundred stalls to browse at their leisure. For chic restaurants and stylish nightlife, Melrose Arch is the place to be. Monte Casino is a popular attraction for both local and international visitors, whilst establishments such as the Everard Read Gallery bring art and culture to the district. The Wanderers is situated in the Illovo suburb of Sandton and cricket fans flock here to watch their favorite international teams in action.

Sandton is the perfect location for international visitors as it offers fashionable accommodation, nearby attractions, great shopping, historical and cultural sights and vibrant nightlife.
