Jo'burg in 2 days

i am having a 2 day stopover in Jo'burg and was wondering what are the must see places of the city. I know it is not a long time, but i need only the basics. Also any advice about hostels in safe areas would be appreciated. Cheers

The Rosebank market - there is a section open from Tues to Sun with crafts, otherwise the main market is open on Sundays. Go on a township tour through Soweto, Hector Petersen memorial, the Apartheid museum at Gold Reef city, and take a trip down a mineshaft at Gold Reef city if you can take the heat. Do not know of any hostels in safe areas, but there are a number of enterprising people in Soweto who are running excellent B&B's.

Good rooftop market open only Sundays - 9 am to 11:30 am - on Bath Street, one block from the Grace Hotel in Rosebank. Excellent place to bargain and buy.
