I spent 2 hours exploring the streets and shops of Chinatown, as I recognised the style of the buildings from the time I lived in Kuching, Malaysia, and it made me feel at home. This colourful area is well worth a visit, and it was...More

It is the most simple Chinatown I’ve ever known. I’ve been more than 10 Chinatowns in many cities/ countries but this is the least busy, colourful one, maybe because the population of Chinese people here is minority compared to Indian community. If you don’t have...More

We strolled through china town, but compared to other china towns we saw in our travels, this one was nothing special. If you are short on time, skip it altogether.

Wow! I really enjoyed this little chinese spot in Mauritius! It is curious to see how did they developed “their heimat” over there. I recommend at least a visit.

Not so crazy as expected, but still a lot of fuss going on. We were also there on a weekend day, maybe that`s why. Our kids were kind of shocked :) Maybe it`s a good experience for them.

Not much was happening in China Town. Nothing special. Not worth the stop we made. The whole of Port Louis seemed very quite that day.

It is a cultural thing that I pay it a visit. The place is not really for the average tourist unless you are interested to visit a crowded local market. Nonetheless, I was curious to see how the large Chinese population took root in Mauritius...More
