visit the most beautiful...
visit the most beautiful gambling resort, located slightly over a 2-hour drive away from Jo'burg - SUN CITY. And standing beside me are my buddies - Lina and Kallista, trying to look cooool under the sweltering African heat... here at the most magnificent hotel in the African continent - THE PALACE OF THE LOST CITY. Can you see the bridge on which we were standing on?? Well, at certain times within the day... it would shake/ sway/ tremble/ rattle etc... as if an earthquake had just struck the place. Impressive!
The Stadium is situated east of the Johannesburg City Centre in the Ellis Park Precinct which incorporates Ellis Park Stadium and the Standard Bank Arena, Ellis Park Tennis Stadium and world class Ellis Park Swimming Pool.
The Johannesburg Stadium complex covers an area of 37 000m2 incorporating the Stadium and warm up track, parking and pedestrian areas.
It seats 37 500 spectators for sporting events and up to 65 000 for concerts.
The unique design of the Stadium enables spectators to be close to all activities on the field and track, whilst excellent site lines gives superb viewing form all the Stadium's seating.
The Stadium can be utilised for multipurpose events such as boxing, wrestling, exhibitions, sporting spectacles, banquets, arts and culture festivals and many community events.
The Johannesburg Stadium housed many events of fame up to this stage and we would like to build fort on this. Events like the Tina Turner, U2, Spice Girls, Michael Jackson, the Nelson Mandela 80th Birthday Bash and the Billy Graham Service are some of the successful events staged.
The Stadium are one of the most modern Athletic Stadia in Africa. It hosted various big athletic events like the All Africa Games of 1999.
Busy But Nice
Well once again this is a shopping mall and you able to buy anthing here.
To be honest it does seem to get very busy here over the weekends but in general its a good place to go and shop. You decide , they cater for all your needs.
This is suppose to be SAA budget airlines which started operating now late 2006. You can check there website as they have some really good specials sometimes that you don`t want to miss out on. Other than that the prices is much higher than that of Kulula or 1time which is really ridiculous I would say for a budget airline.
Grill & Chill
At weekends this venue buzzes with live entertainment. Fridays are for chilling, with a DJ spinning lounge tracks, and on Sundays, there is jazz on the terrace.
Think vintage decor with autumn colours, white-draped tablecloths, comfy upholstered chairs, pink textured wallpaper, glass partitions, crystal chandeliers, soft white curtains and giant mirrors. There is a champagne and cocktail bar on the tiled terrace, a private area with a bar and elegant dining in the carpeted interior.
It is not cheap, but the menu offers a range to suit most pockets. Starters include chicken trinchado, or goats' cheese and basil bruchetta with lime-dressed rocket. For something more substantial, there's lamb stew, peri-peri chicken or steak. Seafood is a strong focus, with platters, catch of the day and specials, like seared tuna.
