Johannesburg in your Pocket

A little over 100 years old, Johannesburg orJoburg(as it is known by locals) still retains its gold rush roots, attracting people from across Africa and the world to its streets.

The contrasts are everywhere: of shiny shopping malls and roadside craft; designer-label junkies and fast-talking car guards; old money and the flashy, minted-yesterday kind; hipsters and hustlers. One minute it's all shiny elegance and, the next, rough grittiness.

Joburgcan give you the warmest smile or flip you the bird. The sunsets and summer thundershowers will take your breath away as quickly as the recklessness of its minibus taxi-drivers. From a twisty, segregated history has emerged an African cosmopolitan centre, a young city obsessed with the new, offering surprises for locals andout-of-townersalike. Johannesburg In Your Pocket is an insider's guide to the city, and, like the place, we hope it reveals some shiny gems.
