Mall after mall: shopping in Johannesburg

Mall after mall: shopping in Johannesburg

Luxurious malls can be found throughout the city for shopping worthy of New York, London, or Paris.

In Johannesburg, the capital of consumption, you can indulge in endless shopping in malls that attract the wealthy from neighbouring African countries: the very chic Hyde Park, if you are looking for designer clothes and jewellery; Melrose Arch, full of pretty squares; Sandton City, a razzle dazzle choice; the gigantic Cresta Shopping Centre; the Rosebank Mall, where shops alternate with spacious terraces and outdoor cafes; and Ferndale on Republic where you will stroll among waterfalls and beautiful lawns.

Be aware that in terms of African crafts, the Rosebank Art & Craft Market takes the cake. For the best flea market, the Rosebank Sunday Market is renowned for clothing, ceramics, collectibles, used books, and jewellery. Rush to the Market Place if you are a CD or DVD collector. Finally, Bryanston Organic and Natural Market offers the best organic and natural products.
