Peace and quiet in Johannesburg

As Joburgers head to the coast for the holidays in a mass exodus, Johannesburg takes on a whole new, surprisingly peaceful, atmosphere. It is the perfect time to stay put and to take advantage of the great specials for holiday accommodation in Johannesburg.

Us locals often don’t explore our own city, yet there is so much to see and do. Whether it’s a love of theatre, history or even beer, Jozi has you covered. Faircity Mapungubwe Hotel is located in the heart of the inner city, an ideal home base for an urban adventure.

Theatre enthusiasts have the Market Theatre and Joburg Theatre within easy reach, offering productions as diverse as our population. We have immense talent in our country and there is just something special about seeing a live performance. There is often an opportunity to meet the performers after the show, so don’t forget your selfie stick.

Constitution Hill is a living museum that tells the story of South Africa’s journey to democracy. The site is a former prison and military fort, and is home to our country’s Constitutional Court. Eleven judges stand guard over the Constitution and protect our human rights. When staying at holiday accommodation in Johannesburg, you will be at the heart of our history and culture.

Mad Giant Craft Brewery promises to serve you bold and audacious craft beer at 1 Fox, which is also home to The Good Luck Bar, one of Joburg’s best live music venues. If food is your thing, the Food Marked Shed offers amazing international cuisine, as well as arts and crafts. The market is open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

The Maboneng Precinct is a collaborative hub of culture, business and lifestyle, that offers a creative take on history, architecture, art and nature. The Living Room is an eco-urban venue, a rooftop terrace with beautiful, panoramic views of the city. Small international films or documentaries, and many locally-made films rarely get seen in theatres. The Bioscope is the city’s only truly independent cinema, where you sit comfortably in car seats as you enjoy oftentimes thought-provoking content.

This is just the tip of the iceberg – book your holiday accommodation in Johannesburg at Faircity Mapungubwe Hotel, and start exploring the sights and sounds of our vibrant city today.
