    I visited The Playground on a beautiful sunny day, as you walk in you can feel the energy from inside the venue humming out. The playground truly is a feast for the eyes, mouth and soul with amazing murals, great food and a vibey bar area.

    This is the site where the Freedom Charter was signed so whilst the square is a bit rundown it is an important historical place with great significance for the townships.

    It was a nice place to visit, but you really had to look to find unique things or really good deals. Don't be afraid to barter!

    This mall is trying to cater for the entire South African demographic. They have succeeded in this however, it turns out to be the same as just about any other mall making for a rather mediocre experience. Not sure if I would travel all the way there again because sadly it's bland and nothing outstanding. If they really want the likes of me to return it needs a one of a kind restaurant or shop.

    We found ourselves wondering out of our comfort zone and ended up at 44 Stanley. Not sure of the neighbourhood, my daughter and I were a bit sceptical when we first arrived. But we were pleasantly reassured about safety by the secure parking and felt safe at all times inside the establishment.
    44 on Stanley is very much an upmarket market, with various local designer stores and lovely, but extremely busy restaurants. It is advised if you know before hand where you want to eat book a table in advance before you browse. The setting of most of the restaurants is outdoor, so I am not sure what it would be on a rainy day.

    It is not a very large market area and the shops are speciality local designer stores.
    We had fun just browsing and it was most definitely worth the wait for a table.

    The Box Shop is an outlet for new entrepreneurs and designers. It also has a neat cafe with a good view out over Soweto.
    If you like new and innovative designs - cloths, sun glasses - all sorts - you will like Box Shop.

    Enough of everything -- shops, restaurants, cinemas, banks. This is a convenient and manageable center. It is well structured and easy to navigate. I found the security good, and it certainly is a place that satisfies all choices.

    What an amazing way to spend a few hours in a Sunday. Lots of stalls to browse. Particularly loved "I was shot in Joburg" an initiative to help former street children. Amazing things to buy and for such a good cause. Nice rooftop bar to sit and have a drink in the sunshine. We had a drink at Canteen under the trees and enjoyed people watching. Will definitely visit again.

    Spoil yourself with a lovely aroma of Indian spices and food at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for replicas of bags, footwear or clothes you will find a wide variety of choices to choose from.

    The area has a lovely play area for children. Multiple places to eat. Interesting shops with South African stuff. The area around 27 boxes is also very interesting and seems it would fun and exciting in the evening and night. Much better than a mall.

    As we live in Malawi and mainly visit malls for essential shopping, we enjoy visiting Mall of the South. It has ample parking, all necessary shops and lovely restaurants.

    Get the feel of a factory, they have a restaurant downstairs and a courtyard outside as well as the beautiful space at the top with views of Johannesburg. Good food, nice coffee.

    A small but well layer out gallery with good lighting & divided spaces. The exhibit was good & the write up interesting.
    The staff were friendly & very helpful in directing us to other contemporary galleries.
