    Yes the international media often show negative picture of Johannesburg because of its crime rate .But the actual picture is not like that. Few years back, Johannesburg wasn’t succeeded to score good image in my mind but when i visited the city myself, the whole concept changed dramatically. Johannesburg has a lot of tourists’ attractions and lots of activities to offer which overcome the security concerns.
