The main gateway for tourists to southern Africa, Johannesburg is seldom explored fully by visitors, principally because of a misinformed view of the city. In the past year Johannesburg has made enormous strides in creating a safe, dynamic city which has won two awards from the British Guild of Travel Writers. This pocket-sized guide will give confidence to business and vacation travelers wanting to make the most of a visit to these major sites as well as Johannesburg's other attractions, including excellent museums telling the story of South Africa's turbulent history, markets which sell cheeses and Cape wineland produce, art galleries showcasing local painting, and bohemian cafes which personify the "Rainbow Nation."
