If you want to vacation where South Africa’s locals choose to vacation, then Durban is your spot. Located along the East Coast of South Africa, Durban offers resplendent beaches and restaurants. The city has South Africa’s largest Indian population because during British control of the city many workers were brought over from India to work at the sugar plantations. Durban is also known to have a creative population; many artists, avant garde fashion designers and interior designers have emerged from the city to garner acclaim.
