Quick but good to visit

A great place to visit but you will not spend a long time here. Jump out and take your photos is my best hint.

Conveniently located and close to Gautrain Sandton station. It has a huge statute of late Nelson Mandela which is a hot spot for photo-taking. There is a small fountain outside the mall where you can see a lot of kids playing with water and have fun. The mall has a lot of restaurants, cafe and shops. One could easily spend... More

This square and it's beautiful Mandela monument, it's the center of the very modern and active Sandton neighborhood. It's a safe place even at night.
