In case they do not have a car they should know how to catch a bus or a minibus taxi. There are also hidden restaurants like the Tramonto, which is very cheap.

Newcastle is an extremely small city and you won’t find a lot of a lot tourist attractions. It is not a holiday destination. We do not have a proper cinema so, entertainment places/areas are very limited along with restaurants but we are a very tight community and we look out for each other.

It is a small town in KwaZulu-Natal with over 50,000 occupants. It consists of a few small malls with the largest one being in town while others surround the town. There are also townships surrounding the town where you will find the essence of ‘Kasi flavour’.

Newcastle is a very small city. Newcastle has two shopping malls and numerous shopping centres. I would recommend moving to Newcastle if you are a person that doesn’t mind living in a small city. On the other hand, Newcastle is pretty safe compared to other cities, it is also listed among the cleanest cities in the region.

Newcastle, South Africa, is a small beautiful town but overcrowded with too many people from nearby towns. It’s lovely, people are friendly which is the reason why people loves it. People in my town loves going to church. Many people are Christians.
