Putting a sign up saying “china town” and having a few chinese shops dont qualify as a china town in my book. No need to go there imho

This was within walking distance of the cruise terminal but through a few neighborhoods. Shopping was very reasonable. I purchased silk scarves and accent items for my Zen room at a very fair price. There was less opportunity to negotiate prices in this area of...More

There are many shops and restaurants with the unique culture and flavor that you can only find here. There are so many vendors and stores selling traditional foods such as chow mein and fish balls that you simply must try.

Well worth a visit for authentic Chinese culture. Great restaurants as well as street hawkers. Diversity within one road where different cultures exist in harmony

There are better China towns elsewhere. Plenty of shops with cheap souvenirs, lots of eating options, and more than anything, daily necessities for locals; with not much to interest a tourist. We wouldnt recommend taking young children along.

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.
