"Jo-burg" Johannesburg by etfromnc

Johannesburg Travel Guide: 1,106 reviews and 2,318 photos

Joburg. Jozi. Egoli. Place of Gold... Call it what you want, but Johannesburg has turned into the true heartbeat of South Africa. The city has grown from a small mining outpost into the second largest city in Africa and serves as both an inspiration and leader for the continent.

While this metropolis may have been founded on the tiny notion of a glimmering nugget, it's no longer the Stock Exchange or serving as the business epicenter for a continent that makes it famous. Rather it's the diversity, vitality, and warmth of its people, the countless cultures they represent and the infinite choices the city offers its citizens and visitors that continues to draw visitors from all over the world.
And you thought that it was the World Cup.
