For the international tourist, shopping in South Africa should be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thanks to the favourable exchange rates and comparatively low production costs, Pounds, Euros and Dollars go a long way. Whether you’re shopping for African curios, contemporary art or the latest designer fashions, you’ll find them in Cape Town, South Africa’s creative hub. Many of South Africa’s finest jewellery designers live in Cape Town, and their exquisite creations can be purchased at reasonable prices. For the serious shop-til-you-droppers though, Johannesburg offers a thriving mall culture with a variety of superb shopping facilities. From the upmarket Sandton Shopping Centre on Nelson Mandela Square, surrounded by stylish clothing boutiques and contemporary art galleries to the Oriental Plaza with its unforgettable selection of fabrics or the Eastgate Mall with its incredible variety of stores, whatever you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it.
