Centre is very poor - feeling of desperation - although clean it does not strike me as a place you could go and really enjoy yourself - restaurant was closed.

This is a bargain - super v iews of course, but also the whole experience of being in downtown Jozi. We loved the pulse and energy in the shopping mall below. Our UK visitors had a great time as well.

Another mall type shopping experience, become run down and the city is not fun to visit. Mainly black people and as a white person I felt threatened and very visible.

Been there years ago, and recently it appears so changed and so many different shops. The height still scares me.

I did it as part of a guided walking tour through the city with Maboneng Precint! Our guide was so enthusiastic about the city, its history and current revival! I loved visiting this old monster and to hear the history. The viewing over the city was great- especially getting information about buildings around the area. Shopping area was very busy and vibey.
