Durban - Durban has done it again: added another accolade to its growing list of honours.
Now it has beaten Cape Town and Johannesburg to be named the South African city with the highest quality of life.
International company Mercer has released the results of its 2015 Quality of Living survey, placing Durban in 85th spot, ahead of Cape Town’s 91st and Johannesburg’s 94th place.
The ranking covered 230 cities around the world and a press release stated that Durban’s ranking was mainly due to its “high-quality housing, plentiful recreational offerings and good consumer goods availability”.
It was kept out of the top 50 because of crime problems.
