Our first stop of the day tour was at Aapravasi Ghat. I had no idea of this part of indentured servitude, especially in such a more recent part of history, 1834-1920. Our guide was excellent. We could almost feel the presence of those souls from China, India and South East Asia while they waited to be transshipped to other parts of the world. When we visited the grounds were open every day but Sunday

Being South African Indian and having a heritage coming from indentured labour, this was close to my heart. We spent a rainy morning here. Well laid out displays. Informative and well documented. Friendly helpful staff. A must visit if you are in the area. No fees to enter

It is worth negotiating the heavy traffic opposite the bus station in order to access this museum at the very end of the waterfront near the harbour. It gives an informative history of indentured labour and the conditions that workers endured through film, exhibits and photographs. There are interactive video screens for children (although not all of them were working). It is an insight into the history of Mauritius and better organised than some other museums that have an entry fee.

Totally free and exclusive world heritage site and exclusive immigration depot point which became very popular in the 1800/1900s Very nicely explained stories of people who used to come from abroad to work in the sugar industry of Mauritius. Worthwhile visiting!
