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.

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.

If you are visiting mauritius then China town in port Louis is a place to be.. It has both a cultural and economic dimension. It still has some of the old building and trade.. Food stall.. Etc.. It is sort of little china..

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