Walk among giants • Conducted by knowledgeable guides, Past Experiences’ Ka’Ching Tour takes in the rich and diverse architecture of Joburg’s mining houses, banks, public art sites and high-rise buildings that dominate its iconic skyline. In troubled economic times, particularly in the mining industry, the walk offers a welcome perspective on the glories and iniquities of the city’s 130-year history, while producing insights into an uncertain future. You will also have the opportunity to view an early mining stope and appreciate the impact of migrant labour on the city´s development at the Workers´ Museum in Newtown. After you’ve worked up an appetite, conclude the day’s activities with a sumptuous high tea and spectacular 360-degree panoramic views at the Randlords rooftop venue. www.pastexperiences.co.za. FLASH FACT: At 173m, the cylindrical Ponte Tower is the tallest residential skyscraper on the continent and a marvel of architectural innovation, with a central core soaring above a jagged rock basement. Marked for extensive redevelopment, its neon sign atop the building is the largest in the southern hemisphere and a key part of the iconic Johannesburg skyline.
