Whilst it is very small to other towns we have visited around the world there is still a great charm and the shops sell something slightly different. Worth a look

One of the places not to miss. Discover chinese shops and not to miss the excellent food. Lots of stores. You will also find very cheap clothes, souvenirs, electrical gadgets etc. Many mauritians go there for shopping. Usually very crowded and difficult to get parking...More

Not too much to it. It's very small area and we weren't able to find any place to have a drink og snack. Nice small shops.

The only thing that indicates that this is China Town is the entrance gate. Ubiquitous dirt, shabby buildings and a mass of cheap stores, mainly with metal artefacts.. For me, not and once again not

Worth a visit if you’re in and around Port Louis. Wandered around the streets whilst on our way to find the oldest Chinese restaurant In Port Louis - Lai Min. Some good photo opportunities. Try to find the plastic bottle sculpture of a dragon.

Located south /south east from the city center, this is an area where it is predominantly run by the local Chinese ethnic group of Mauritius.

China town is near to Caudan waterfront. There was not much to see there. You will mostly see Chinese food item shops. Walked around for 20 mins and then went back to the Caudan Waterfront which is walking distance from China town.

We were rather disappointed, lots of traders lost of bustle, but very little of real interest, not real colour of flair to the place as you might expect in most "Chaintowns", a bit of a let down - failed to be welcoming for outsiders nor...More

Went there with no special interest. It was interesting, to see how many shops can coexist in that small place. Narrow streets are busy as poeple are walking there, moving some stuff and even motorbikes come through it. It was a good experience and we...More
