With Ultra South Africa just around the corner, our hearts are already pounding with the anticipation of the once-in-a-year experience, that is, if you’re fortunate enough. Your tickets are booked, you’ve looked up the line-up and the only thing left is to pack your bags!
While you can shop from your hometown, but wouldn’t you rather add some local flavor as you dress up just right for Ultra South Africa. Taking place in Cape Town and Johannesburg on 13th and 14th February respectively, we’ve already charted out a shopping guide for Cape Town (click to visit.)
As promised, here’s a shopping guide for Johannesburg that will make your stay at the city a much modish affair.
