Good to visit for a photo op with the giant Madiba statue. The mall is huge, so you could probably spend all day there if you wanted to. Nice restaurants around the square where you can sit outside.

This is a must visit for shopping but mostly eating. Very safe to walk around in once you are there and there are safe taxi's to take you back to your hotel later.

Nice restaurants in the square and the huge statue of Nelson Mandela is a MUST SEE for all tourists new to Joburg. Go on, hug his leg and get a photo next to the legend!

The square leads into a large shopping mall and several restaurants. A lot of people are there to spend their free time and taking pictures. We enjoyed a nice glass of wine and watched the people milling about.

Variety of restaurants, high end mall, proximity to the best hotels in town, modern and architecturally well designed, all make it a must visit in Jo'burg.
