Howzit! If you're looking for student accommodation in Durbs, then you can expect a laidback jol, where surf & turf rule and the lifestyle is a heady mix of spiced-up flavours and aromas. This is a city that offers beach life and street shopping bargains, bar none.
Durbs’ tropical charm and laidback attitude is what makes this city-by-the-sea a great hangout: its year ‘round warm weather and friendly social scene is addictive.
You’re sure to have a good time along The Golden Mile, which stretches over Durban’s hotel-lined sea-front, and is home to an array of pubs and restaurants, plus there’s an aerial cableway, which gives you a cool view of the city.
To really get a taste of flavourful Durbs, you just gotta eat curry at an authentic Indian curry joint: you’ll discover numerous Indian eateries in Musgrave.
For global cuisine do the hip thing in Morningside and especially Florida Road: this strip, where Durban’s trendies and arty types hang out, offers more than 30 restaurants, all of them offering different eating experiences.
Durbs’ answer to the waterfront lifestyle is Wilson’s Wharf, a shopping and entertainment venue: it may not be as glam as Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront but it’s the perfect jol because what it lacks in aesthetic it makes up for vibe.
Speaking of vibe, nightlifers will enjoy the city’s bars, clubs and lounges, which rock on into the early hours of the morning: Morningside, the Durban beachfront and Stamford Hill are all home to jol joints.
Do culture at the BAT Centre, an exciting arts & culture community centre, where you get to check out cool performing and visual arts and sip on cold beer.
Shop at Victoria market, on the corner of Queen and Victoria Streets, where you can get lost in all the colours, aromas and bargains.
