Sandton City and Mandela Square
The Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton is a key tourist attraction - see below.
Over the last 15 years, much of Johannesburg's business has moved out of the city centre towards the Sandton region in the city's northern suburbs. While many banks and industries still maintain their headquarters in the Joburg city centre, the majority of new enterprises, financial institutions and businesses have established or relocated themselves to the Sandton region, including the JSE Securities Exchange, Johannesburg's stock exchange.
As a result, it has fast become one of the country's most important financial hubs, and over the years, smaller businesses, shops, restaurants, conference facilities and accommodation options have followed. Owing to the nature of the area, however, the majority of these cater towards the upper end of the business and tourist markets, with the more budget-friendly options typically found in the neighbouring suburbs.
In recent years, as the Sandton CBD has expanded, so neighbouring suburbs have also developed. Today there are a number of equally appealing suburbs spread throughout the region that offer attractive opportunities for business people and tourists alike, many of which are listed on this website.
If you wish for fine wining and dining, entertainment, socialistic, spectacular hotels, or a jam-packed shopping session, pay a visit to this upmarket venue, in the heart of Sandton, Johannesburg’s buzzing business hive.
