South Africa’s cities are being noticed by millions of people around the world right now, thanks to the fact that we’re hosting the Soccer World Cup. We’re front and centre, and we’re hip, hot and happening. Perfect timing then, to check out this year’s Hip Cities Guide – the insiders’ guide to the hottest places to eat, sleep, party, shop, drink and chill in South Africa.
