Randburg is a city in Gauteng. It is near other major areas like Fourways and Sandton, making it quite central. There are many amenities, such as restaurants, shopping malls and other recreational activities to enjoy. If you prefer to keep your commercial consumption low, there are also some great hiking spots and parks. You definitely will not be bored here.

Rentals in my city are quite pricey. General cost of living is also high and it is a dangerous area. The benefits of my city are that it is close to Sandton, good schools and major shopping malls. There are many parks close by where you can go for a run, cycle or out for the day with the family.

My city is very diverse and offers several different activities. We have a rich political history in South Africa and there are many tours and monuments to see. We have amazing entertainment and eateries too. Our uniqueness comes from our diversity not only as South Africans we also have many people from our neighbouring countries who have chosen to make South Africa their home. Randburg is no exception to this, here you will find many different languages, cultures and food to sample.

Johannesburg is an incredibly diverse and unique area which provides plenty of enjoyable and interesting experiences, places as well as people. Although there are many situations in which you have to be extremely cautious of certain surroundings, overall it is a city that is rich in culture, languages and food.

Randburg is a very quiet and safe city. It is full of garden flats and malls and food outlets. One needs to be careful though not to travel very late hours and secluded places. There is a 24-hour police station that is close by as well. The people are friendly and always willing to assist.

The first thing someone moving here should know is the beautiful and magnificent Nelson Mandela Bridge. After that, they should also know the amazing social places to hang out with friends and family like the Monte Casino. someone moving here should know of the Soweto town and all its thrilling activities like snake holding and handling.
