The City of Gold as many call it because it was built on gold mines is welcoming adventurous individuals including many expats year by year! Nowadays they arrive not because of the gold rush that shaped the life in the city ages ago, but because of the booming economy and cultural diversity that Johannesburg offers. Here are our top reasons on why you should move to this beautiful city in South Africa.
It has a booming economy
One of the top financial hubs of Africa, Johannesburg is home to the headquarters of a large number of local and international businesses and corporations. People from all over move to the city for professional opportunities, and many people find them.
The amazing weather
Johannesburg weather is one of the best in the world. It’s as simple as that. It’s nearly always sunny. It’s mostly warm and not too hot (even though this summer might prove to be the record-worthy exception). The air is never humid and cools down sufficiently at night so that you can comfortably live without air conditioning. Winters are short, with very cold nights and warm sunny days.
The inner city is a cultural hub
Johannesburg’s inner city, thanks to urban renewal projects, is becoming more and more popular by the day. Areas like Maboneng and Braamfontein boast great restaurants, art galleries and bars, and guarantee a day well spent in the city of gold.
It’s a melting pot of cultures
Johannesburg is home to an amalgamation of cultures from all over Africa. From Yeoville to Fordsburg, communities range from Nigerian to Indian and everyone in between. Wherever you are from, you won’t experience any difficulty in getting by in Johannesburg. Different ethnic groups live together in the region and help the city develop!
The City of Gold houses a fusion of different cultures, is rich in history and boasts some of the best restaurants in the country. Most who move to this bustling city refuse to leave and, like most other cosmopolitan cities, it’s one of the best places to call home in South Africa.
