What is the number one can’t-miss travel destination for 2019? According to British Airways, Durban South Africa should be at the top of everyone’s list.
Each year the airline develops and releases the list of must-see destinations for the following year to come. These destinations are cities that British Airways expects holiday-makers to flock to—an important expectation since the list is part of the airline’s efforts to determine how to schedule their service and which cities to connect to which travel hubs. The key is to anticipate which places are about to break out, about to become the next big thing in travel.
And for the first time, Durban not only made the list, but topped it as the number one destination for 2019. With cheap flights to Durban literally on the horizon, worldly travelers would be amiss to miss out on the opportunity.
South Africa as a Growing Travel Destination
South Africa has been becoming more and more popular with the world’s tourists, but usually, the attention goes to Cape Town. And Cape Town is well-worth the world’s attention, but now the up-and-coming city is Durban, and it’s not hard to see why.
Durban, also known locally as Zululand, or the Kingdom of Zulu, has a humid, tropical climate year-round, with beautiful beaches on the coast of the Indian Ocean. The exciting nightlife is one of the most vibrant in the country. Tourists flock to destinations like uShaka Marine World and to participate in any of the varied and exciting events at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
