Extremely stuffy shed with stalls selling cheap Chinese goods and duplicated by majority of them. Dangerously overcrowded and a real fire hazard!

we attempted to see something there twice. Both times it was a ghost town. It is close to the port area so you may always visit but there is nothing to see there

Situated next to Central Market in Port Louis. Nothing much - for Chinese goods, everything still expensive - you can get better deals in Central Market.

China town in Mauritius is mainly a market for hardware and does not hold much interest for tourists

We walked up and down the main street of Chinatown which is full of industrial type businesses and diesel fumes. We did not see any inviting Chinese eateries but lots of construction work and trucks. Overall we were really disappointed as we intended having lunch there

While going around in Port Louis our car took a wrong turn and there it was the China town welcome board. We went around in it for quite a while but could find a stop where we would want to halt. Again on another trip driven in a taxi we went past China town, but alas there was no spot... More
