Durban is yet another amazing destination in South Africa, offering its own unique spin on the great South African life. It is the perfect getaway destination, and the best part is that finding cheap flights to Durban is a breeze considering all of the competitive pricing between the domestic airlines here in South Africa. When in Durban, you will discover that most of the magic happens during the day in the sunlight on the beaches, where everyone goes to cool off and enjoy themselves. Of course, you will also find a very exciting nightlife, but the daytime experience at the beaches is the one to be had, depending on your personal preference, of course.
Durban is a one of a kind destination with something for every kind of person. The cuisine is something out of this world, and you will find that Indian food is rather rampant that side of South Africa, and if you like spicy food, you will be in the right place. There are, of course, various other options as well. Even the pickiest of eaters should find something suited to their taste.
When considering that Durban is largely a beach destination, it makes sense that it is often passed up for a Cape Town trip, since there are many people that consider Cape Town to be the better destination, but even though the Mother City will always have a special place in all of our hearts, Durban really has something one of a kind to offer. Once you have experienced it, you will understand that it is a unique experience that you will not soon find somewhere else.
Durban is especially full of magic over the holiday season when the beaches are packed with people having a good time. It is quite interesting to watch the one of a kind culture in front of your eyes. If you are there over the holiday season, be sure to go check out the beach, but arrive as early as possible, since it may be hard to find a good spot later in the day.
Whether you have seen many towns and cities in South Africa or none, if you choose to go to Durban and you have never been there before, you will find that it really is something unique and, even though it may not be as culturally diverse as other destinations in South Africa, the culture is something one of a kind.
