With world-class facilities and excellent accommodation both along the golden beaches and in its leafy suburbs, Durban is striding to the fore as a tourist destination, business centre, and as the gateway to Kwazulu-Natal. As a port city, Durban is an intoxicating blend of cultures languages and cuisines. Some things are just better experienced in Durban such as rickshaw rides, flaming hot bunny chows, sticky Durban Rock, and pineapples covered in spice. Lost? Get to Durban and ask around; the friendly locals will be delighted to educate you in their ways. Although the Durban lifestyle is far more laid back than other South African cities, the action is non-stop with every type of adventure up for grabs. Sports stadiums, nightclubs, malls, theatres, museums, beaches, markets, casinos, and loads of specialised activities are all on offer in Durban.
