Reviews Bloemfontein

Overall rating 8
Overall Guide : Bloem has been a place that you grow to love, i find myself missing it when i go away because its not so small that you feel like your trapped but its also not so big that you have to... more leave 30 mins before hand to get to your destination, obviously there is crime everywhere but fortunately i have not experienced crime first hand (touch wood).
Not to be missed Pretty Gardens for brunch , Art Museum , Bloem spa

Overall Guide : Bloem is a very nice place. A bit dangerous with all the illegal taxi's at the tourism center. The centre of the city is a place you don't want to be. Nice places to be is the waterfront and Mimosa... more Mall.
Not to be missed Bloemfontein Botanical Garden , windmill casino
Overall rating 7
Overall Guide : Bloemfontein is a small cty in the Free State, far from all major attraction sites AND accomodation is very expensive. The property costs as much as Johannesburg.
