We enjoyed a couple of trips to Port Louis. Unlike some. if we are in a resort, this doesn't mean we are unwilling or incapable of venturing out, or seeing something that is a contrast to the excesses elsewhere. Chinatown and the markets of Port Louis are a little chaotic and bustle. Traffic fights for the inch of space on... More

Its just streets filled with cheap, cheap stuff and knock-off's in every shop window. It is not a huge area. I saw no good restaurants. It had no vibe to it. It was a short visit. I was unable to find a thing to buy or eat.

Not memorable - nothing spectacular. I will definitely not say I'm going to Mauritius to visit China Town. I'm sure it appeals to some, but not to our family. Quality of goods - questionable.

And yes,a perfect example of 'old is gold'.There's not many shops over there, but I can't resist spending a pretty penny each time i go there. Even though the buildings r old, that place continues to tempt me,for it's one of the rare places we get to witness Chinese culture in a remarkable way in Mauritius. In short, my favourite... More

Went there. Seen it. Smell it. It is not worth the effort. The town is over sold and underkept with little regard for tourists dollars. The local poor peoples suffering is seen everywhere. City fathers needs to wake up. Uggh.

Been to lots of better Chinatown all over the world - this one is not special. Some what lack lustre, not much shopping, limited food and certainly no colour - which is how Chinatowns stand out!, Typically found a quiet restaurant serving scrumptious food at fabulous cheap prices - just like any other Chinatown! Won't miss it if we didn't... More

Small but nice to have a walk around. The buildings are a bit old and not very well kept. But nice atmosphere. You can find some nice restaurant, selling typical chinese food.

54, Royal street. A little shop of less than 100 sq ft. Hardly visible from the street as almost no facade. A small Chinese medicinal outlet seems as if forgotten in the bustle of this city. The lady running this shop tells me that the shop has 70 years existence. You can get the whole choice of Chinese medicines but... More
