The Wikivoyage page for Johannesburg, South Africa says that by looking adult during Hillbrow and Brixton, a city’s dual towers, we can figure out that partial of city you’re in. Here on Hack Your City, that kind of navigation trick—not as essential in Smartphone Times, though still useful for a caller removing their bearings—is intensely a shit.

This week we’re going to Johannesburg, an mercantile center, home to millions and Africa’s many renouned transport destination, though for all a resources and new improvements, still a city deeply influenced by a story of Apartheid. We wish to know how to navigate Johannesburg both physically and socially, staying safe while also staying open to new practice and informative exchange.


We’re also seeking all a common Hack Your City questions:

What’s underrated? What places merit a few some-more perceptive visitors? And what hacks can spin an fine captivate into a good one? What would we suggest to someone who thinks they’ve seen “all” of Johannesburg? What’s a weirdest thing we like in a city?

How should a caller proceed a city? What opinion should they adopt? What internal traditions, behaviors, and laws should they be wakeful of? What should they know about a city’s past and present? How accessible are a locals, and how can visitors get along with them?


What’s it like long-term? What do we adore and hatred about a city? What do we suggest to other residents? How do we penetrate your commute, what’s your daily lunch mark or a best mark to people-watch? What mistakes do new residents make—any password transport names or uncanny parking regulations? And where do we go when we wish to get out of a city for a day or a week?

Lastly, how has a city’s vibe altered over a past few years? What aged transport recommendation no longer relates here, and what new recommendation does?
