Few places are better for getting to know a holiday destination than its markets. The call of the merchants, the sight of ordinary life progressing much as it has done for centuries - and Durban is no different.
Enjoy some fantastic music during your time in Durban, the new blues capital of South Africa.
As you stroll through the stunning streets of Durban during the month of October, don't be surprised if you hear the squeal of a harmonica, swung notes on a piano or the sweet sound of a saxophone. For the International Blues Festival will be taking over the city from the 14th until the 19th, and you won't want to miss out on all the fun.
