Johannesburg is severely underrated as a tourist destination. This could be because it has no beaches, no snow-capped mountains, and no ancient buildings. But Johannesburg has something else - it is a cultural and industrial centre, with an enormous array of entertainment events running day and night. Johannesburg is also the scene of the fall of the abominable Apartheid system. So Johannesburg is not only a cultural centre, but it is also politically one of the most significant cities in Africa, and the most economically powerful. Furthermore, the human race evolved in the Johannesburg area. So there are many reasons to visit. This book gives an introduction to South Africa and Johannesburg in particular. It covers all the things to see and visit in Johannesburg and its surrounds. It provides addresses, phone numbers and GPS coordinates of each tourist attraction, so that you can find them easily.
