Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.
Head to Sandton City Shopping Centre and The Bryanston Organic and Natural Marketfor some retail therapy. Get a sense of the local culture at Maboneng Precinct and South Western Townships. Get out of town with these interesting Johannesburg side-trips: East Rand Mall (in Boksburg), Irene Village Mall (in Centurion) and Dainfern Square (in Midrand). Spend the 29th (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, buy something for everyone on your list at Cresta Shopping Centre, get a sense of history and politics at Constitution Hill, and contemplate the long history of Union Buildings.

If you are flying in from Vietnam, the closest major airports are OR Tambo International Airport and Pilanesberg International Airport. In September in Johannesburg, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 12°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
