    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Durban is a culturally rich city in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. With a population of about 3.5 million and a subtropical climate with beautiful long stretching beaches it's easy to see why it's a major center of tourism.

    Filled with lots of restaurants, shopping centers and beach activities it's ideal for a chilled out summer holiday. Surfing is big in this city and there are heaps of places to hire boards out to try catch some waves. There are many shark nets set up by the populated beaches but beware there have been incidents involving shark attacks and getting too far out into the ocean could be dangerous.

    Like most areas of South Africa one should be aware of crime. It is not advised to be in certain areas of town at night and you should always travel in groups and know where you are going.

    The Morningside area was nice - good bars and restaurants and an awesome hostel called Tekweni Backpackers. Durban has a really friendly vibe and people will hustle to sell you things whilst you sit on the beach, like ice-creams and necklace souvenirs.
