Shopping in Johannesburg
As South Africa's largest city, it should be no surprise that Johannesburg hosts some of the best shopping in the country. Great shopping districts can be found all across Johannesburg, from upmarket Sandton City to the Rosebank Flea Market.
Retail hotspotsThe Sandton City Mall is a high-end shopping mall that boasts a range of international and South African boutiques. Similarly, the nearby Nelson Mandela Square is known for its designer stores and upmarket brands. Conveniently, both the Sandton City Mall and Nelson Mandela Square have great places for people to rest their weary feet in one of their many cafes and restaurants after a long day of sightseeing and shopping.
For other options, shoppers will enjoy one of Johannesburg's favorite retail centers, the Killarney Shopping Mall, which offers a stylish and modern shopping experience. At the Oriental Plaza, shoppers will find a range of discount fabrics, while the Rosebank Rooftop Market is a shopping mecca for African handicrafts, jewelry, spices and local food.
Other major shopping centers in Johannesburg include Cresta Mall, Clearwater Mall and the Carlton Center. For a city so closely connected to South Africa’s history, Johannesburg also has many great spots to seek some retail therapy.
