Durban 'offers a taste of England'

Article content

9 December 2009

People holidaying in South Africa should visit Durban if they are looking for a taste of England, it has been claimed.

Writing for the Guardian, Lisa van Wyk stated that the city's best features are that it is "very English", yet benefits from excellent weather as well.

"It's small enough to have kept its character," she remarked, adding that it is "more Victorian-looking than most other cities in the country".

Ms van Wyk added that Indian culture has had a huge influence on the area, with Asian-style cuisine and a number of mosques and temples on the outskirts of Durban.

According to the journalist, it also provides a certain amount of safety in comparison to other South African locations, while at the same time being easy to get around because of its size.

Those looking for something a little different during their South African holiday were recently advised to visit Cape Town by Guardian contributor Josh Hawks.

It offers a range of diverse people and places, he explained.
