With its fine beaches, great dining (yay bunny chow!), and colorful mixture of Zulu and Indian cultures, Durban is a place that too may people breeze past on their way up to Jo'burg. Walk the length of the beaches and enjoy the sun, shop in Victoria Market for crafts and spices, and eat your heart out -- Durban is more than worth a night or two of your time.Recommended for:

Durban is the 3rd largest city in South Africa BUT it has the largest Indian population outside of Asia. It is also a very busy container port city. Because of the Indian influence in Zulu land, the vibe in Durban is very unique and indeed interesting.

Very pretty town located on the Indian Ocean. I was here for a conference and didn't get an opportunity to do many touristy things, but what I saw was very nice. The beaches were very pretty, and the seafood was awesome.

think its a big harbour city next only to capetown. visited the sea world on the beach and thought of the helicopter ride but had to forego to go with friends to go play pool in the neighbourhood. it was still coming out of the aparthied era in the 1990's.
