The Victoria Street Market in Durban is unique in South Africa. Barrels of Indian spices and incense infuse the air of this flea market and a visit is essential for those who want to experience Durban's relaxed Afro-Oriental atmosphere and pick up some great bargains. The market is a melting pot of vibrancy and you’ll definitely walk out with a souvenir or two.
