We often go to the oriental plaza when looking for a different experience. Its a nice trip from Pretoria, and it is nice to have some different food flavors.

The plaza is one of those unique Johannesburg institutions where the people are warm and friendly and you can probably find most things here. The shop keepers regularly refer business to one another...I love it!

This is the place that Indians, under the Apartheid Group Areas Act, were forcibly removed to from their previous location in Fietas. Fordsburg. They have since made it their own and it has become a thriving market for competitively priced goods and services as well as a must-see tourist destination following the recently acclaimed South African film 'Material'.
