More Shopping Spots
Johannesburg offers shopping venues in any direction you choose to shop. Here are a few favorites.
Monte Cassino is not just a shop, it is a whole town made up like the famous Italian village. Totally enclosed with the ceiling representing the sky displaying a sunrise, a sunset, the hot sun of the afternoon, or a romantic sky with twinkling stars. Many shops and restaurant’s offer unique merchandise and tastes.
Fourways Mall has all the shops, plus, an outdoor area with miniature golf.
Killarney Mall, is a favorite with a modern atmosphere. Shops and restaurants offer delicious tastes for any palette.
Downtown Johannesburg becomes a daytime market with street sellers all over the pavements…offering a bit of chaotic shopping fun. But, the widest range of crafts can be found at the Rosebank Flea Market with displays of authentic African crafts and curio, and of course there is a lot of bargaining going on if that’s your shopping style.
