One of the world’s 50 largest metropolitan areas, Johannesburg was first built on the gold and diamond trade in the 19th and 20th centuries.
During the past 15 years, Johannesburg has begun a rebirth as a modern business metropolis, with an atmosphere that feels lively, affluent and cosmopolitan. While the city’s business and financial district remains in the neighbourhood of Sandton – just 10 minutes from Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff, Johannesburg – even the Central Business District is experiencing an urban revival.
Johannesburg has also gained renown as an exciting leisure hotspot, offering an array of vibrant cafés and restaurants, designer boutiques and world-class shopping centres. There are many new art and cultural attractions in creative districts such as Newtown Precinct and Maboneng Precinct.
The weather is comfortable year round, with very mild winters and reversed seasonality from the northern hemisphere, making Johannesburg a great holiday destination for people who enjoy the great outdoors, cultural discoveries and world-class golf.
