launches dedicated tourists routes

Published: Wed Oct 06 2010, part of the travel network, has launched a new section dedicated to specific travel routes. This section offers travellers proposed itineraries for an afternoon, a weekend, or an entire week.

These suggested trips and routes, dubbed Johannesburg Destinations deal with 10 of Johannesburg's most popular regions, as well as regions often overlooked by tourists. They include comprehensive maps, recommended reading, and brief introductions to the various regions.

Routes close to Johannesburg include those of the popular township of Soweto, which suggests hotels, shopping centres, museums and other important heritage sites; Johannesburg proper; Sandton; the Magaliesberg; and the Cradle of Humankind.

Further afield, popular wildlife regions the Kruger National Park and the smaller Pilanesberg Game Reserve is also showcased.

All of these safari routes offer cultural, sporting and accommodation suggestions, as well as highlights within the actual reserves, and link into various comprehensive listings included in each of these categories.

These routes were borne out of the site's commitment to offer tourists brief but considered first-hand suggestions on how to spend time in Johannesburg and its surrounds, without the restrictions or costs involved with organised tours.

The routes are designed to help tourists enjoy their holiday, and make the most of it, without too much stress or planning if they are not familiar with the area or the attractions it offers. This should make planning what to do on a Johannesburg holiday much easier for tourist choosing to visit the region.

Local businesses are also seeing the value in this approach, as MyJohannesburgInfo's endorsement encourages tourists to visit attractions that major travel guides and organised tours may overlook.

The travel routes are constantly being updated, and the management team at is constantly adding to this increasing popular section of the website.
