A day out in Maboneng

The heart and essence of Joburg.

Arts on main in Maboneng is one of the must see places if/when you are visiting Johannesburg. Located in the eastern CBD area of Johannesburg South Africa, it has a contagious energy. Everyone seem to be living and so full of life, from Joburg locals to tourists enjoying the city.

This past weekend, I went there with my friend, Athule. Apparently Sunday is the best day to go as it has market sales, food stalls, art galleries and other fun activities opened and buzzing.

What to see and do

Interesting things to see include Gavin Art and Gallery Framing Studio. Besides enjoying the bustle and energy, enjoying the city view, visiting art centres, you can go Salsa dancing at the roof top with an amazing view of the city. The road side market has so much interesting finds.  111 112                                     118 I got this cool glasses there!

There is also wall where you can write down something you would like to do before you die. 113

What to eat

You will be spoilt with choice as there are different food stalls and restaurants around. My friend and I got this Congolese meal, which I must say is similar to the food in Nigeria. 120 We also got coconuts, how cool is that?
