Exploring Johannesburg’s “Main Street Life”

I have been out and about again – this time I wanted to check out the Art Hotel at Main Street Life: 12 Decades Hotel. The hotel’s concept traces the history of Johannesburg and it’s rooms are designed by some of South Africa’s most celebrated artists and designers.

There are a total of 12 rooms, each of them representing a decade of South Africa’s past, spanning from 1886 to 2006.

The rooftop of Main Street Life offers a 360 degree view over Johannesburg which is definitely worth seeing.
