It is quite surprising to see that a city which enforced racial segregation once is now the epitome of multiculturalism. This is Durban, South Africa, a landscape which has witnessed immense political upheavals and today basks in the glory of its modernity. After the 2010 World Cup, the city has been completely revamped and rendered tourist friendly. The Downtown recollects past with colonial buildings and Art Deco architecture. Durban abounds with sun-kissed beaches touching the Indian Ocean, thriving with entertainment and hangout spots. Enveloped in an Asian colour, the city is home to the largest concentration of people of Indian descent outside of India.Its marketplaces and streets of Indian locales spill with the sights, sounds and scents of the Indian subcontinent. For a complete Asian experience, try Durban curry, an Indian cuisine served in South African style. If you want to surrender to an insider’s charm, ride in a rickshaw along the beach coast and it will introduce to a perfect form of exotic holiday.There is a vast expanse of well paved promenade which offers an access to the best of city’s beaches – the Golden Mile. If on a family vacation, visit U Shaka Marine World, a world-class water park, aquarium (fish, dolphins, seals, penguins and others) and restaurant complex which overlooks the ocean. Most of the visitors who come to the city prefer beach side accommodations and as a result, the area is populated with luxurious hotels in the coastline.Beverly Hills, Cabana Beach Hotel, Garden court Marine Parade, Suncoast Towers, Sunsquare Suncoast, Southern Sun Elangeni and Maharani are some of the best hotels in the precincts of this city.
