Splash some cash in high fashion stores or funky street markets. Eat Thai or Indian or a host of flavours in between. Relax in a trendy cafe or take in a South African play or an international film. Get involved in the nightlife, hang out and watch the streetlife, feel the buzz. Cosmopolitan but oh-so African, its soundtrack the home-grown Kwaito beat, Joburg is South Africas most exciting, coolest city. This is the best place to explore South Africas famous townships: take a tour of Soweto and get high on the beat of the music, the colours, the jumble of streets, the sense of history and of life, life, life.
