This South African city has so many claims to fame, it's no wonder the best things to do in Johannseburg are all so exciting.
A few fun fact: it’s the biggest city in the world not built on a water source—it was actually built on a goldmine—and the second biggest on the entire continent of Africa (after Cairo, obvs). For all its success on paper, the place is far from trouble-free and a notoriously risky destination for tourists. The advent of controversial cab provider Uber has done the area a lot of good, though: suddenly, anyone with a smartphone can book safe, affordable transport from door to door. The rewards of this characterful city far outweigh the risks. Do some exploring, meet some great people and discover a town that really feels like it’s being reborn when tackling the best things to do in Johannesburg.
