Durban’s Exotic Indian District

Durban’s Exotic Indian District

Durban has its own Indian district. Sadly they don’t have a catchy name like Chinatown, but they do have Victoria Street Market. Kurtas, saris, incense, other fabrics, spices and pretty much anything appropriately Indian is available here. The place is a thrill for the senses, with over a hundred and fifty stalls filling the air with sharp, spicy scents. Apart from spices, there’s a market for seafood, meat, fruits and vegetables. And naturally, the Indian atmosphere wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t get a chance to bargain so go ahead and test your negotiation skills against the vendors. The atmosphere here is heady with exotic energy. Close by, you’ll find the Grey Market, which has more Indian shops and architecture. Make sure you tuck into an Atom Bomb curry.

In this episode of ‘Bakkie Stories’ road-trip through South Africa, we step into another world and get spicy visiting Durban’s buzzing Victoria Markets.

#BakkieStories

The 100 year old markets are famed for their East meets West produce, with stalls laden with perfectly formed pyramids of jewel coloured spices. Watch Maya, Alice and Saunders as they explore the market, filled with aromas of spices and incense. Plus see what they think of the traditional Durban dish, ‘Bunny Chow’, a hollowed out bread roll filled with fragrant and spicy curry. Tasty!

Bargains for Durban!

Bargains for Durban!

A must for those traveling to Durban and looking for handicrafts. Make sure to bargain, prices will definitely drop. Plenty of stalls from which you can buy and bargain. Prices for handicrafts and souvenirs are cheaper here than Johannesburg. If you are there on a Friday make sure to walk across to the  ramp/bridge where local ladies showcase and sell their handicrafts. Awesome, wonderful and beautiful display of handmade items. A must for the ladies or if you want to gift your lady something unique and special.
