Awesome pics of PE. That casino complex is hideous.
I've always really liked PE, I think it's South Africa's cutest city. Don't know why some of the South Africans here poopoo it so much
^^ It's more frustration with it being run into the ground by a crappy local government than poo-pooing the city itself or it's residents. It really needs some tender loving care and comprehensive local economic development framework to get it going. It has potential! Juxtaposed with other coastal cities in South Africa, as a tourist destination, it has so much lofty competition. If you're not at the top of your game as a coastal destination in SA, you get left by the wayside.
it's crazy i hadn't realized port elizabeth has 1.2 million

Now here is one great city regularly hushed down, I wonder why. Too much of CT, jozi and Durban parading perhaps?

This city, place it in most of the continent's countries and she becomes the capital city without a hustle.
Because it is small, economically in decline not growth and has massive mismanagement for years. It is undoubtably a city with potential, but not one that has come close to being realised. Its a pity, because it does have a great beach environment and yes should get more attention than it does.
Almost certainly will be won by the DA in the 2016 local government elections, so expect a turn around soon :)
Is it part of the main building ? Domestic flight entrance ?
