Fashion District & Little Addis tour

An immersion into the migrant cultures of the city.

Probably the most fascinating tour presented by JoburgPlaces in the inner-city, it takes in the historic garment district, today re-positioned as the Fashion District. Visit the Fashion Kapitol and Fashion District Wholesalers, known for its ShweShwe fabrics. Also do some shopping in the area, before walking on the Ethiopian Quarter. Explore buildings full of mazes of shops, sample the best Ethiopian coffee and enjoy a lovely Ethiopian meal too. The tour is a cultural immersive experience that uncovers the fascinating migrant history and communities of the city.

This tour is guided by Charlie Moyo and promised to be an unforgettable experience.
