Immerse yourself in the treasures of South Africa on this exploration of three local Durban Markets, where Durban's rich fusion of African, Asian, and European cultures can be witnessed. Begin with a scenic drive down palm-shaded Victoria Embankment, passing the Vasco Da Gama Clock, the Yacht Club, and the Durban Club. Then, tantalize your senses at the Victoria Street Market, known for its selection of textiles, from fine silks to stunning calicos. Learn about Indian spices-with a Durban twist. Continue with a stroll to the Herb Market where you'll grind herbs. Discover the difference between African and Western medicine as you browse herbs to cure virtually every ailment. Finally, make your way to the Bead Market where vendors travel from the coastal regions to sell their beautiful handicrafts. Get your hair braided and snap a photo. Afterward, enjoy a scenic drive past Durban's City Centre and its storied landmarks.
