Cape Town vs. Durban in December


Winter is drawing to a close, and that can only mean one thing: VACATION TIME! Which city, in your opinion, is better to spend a holiday - and why?

The vivacious metropolis of Cape Town, revered as South Africa’s quintessential Mother City, is home to many of the country’s most gorgeous settings and natural attractions. From Table Mountain (vote for it to be one of the New7Wonders of Nature now), Cape Point and Robben Island; to the Winelands, the V&A Waterfront and the beaches - these, along with the well-developed infrastructure, architectural heritage and the legendary nightlife, is why so many tourists flock to its shores.

Durban, where it lacks in its environs, it gains in its tropical climate and warm, surfer-friendly beaches. From a Golden Mile coastline, a world-class casino and an entertainment world that rocks; to a mega mall, marine life and a kick-ass vibrancy to boot - this city proves that it’s no small fry and can without doubt, match up to the “class” of Cape Town.

What’s your take on the two cities… Where’s better, and why?
