fun!

Perhaps the Chinese city of Port Louis does not particularly stand out among peers, but it was interesting to see!

We visited China town in the afternoon. It was really hot. We have negative impressions and we didn't find the place interesting for tourist.

Dirty, run down street with mainly trade plumbing and electrical shops! One or two dodgy looking Chinese food outlets. Nothing like the Chinatown in other cities.

China Town is a very famous business area in Mauritius. It has tons of shops at affordable prices. One can almost find anything they want in this area. Bargaining on prices is customary.

There isn't much to see and not an awful lot to eat either, compared with other China Towns in the world. The only plus is the fireworks and fire crackers which are available in abundance at this one store, Wing Tai Chung.

Not so great, and no way good when compared with other China Town's across the world (I went to similar ones in Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Vancouver, Hong Kong, Seattle, etc)

We stumbled upon Chinatown, literally, upon finding the huge stone structure erected at the entrance and end of Chinatown. We had hope that it'll be interesting but unfortunately, no. It is lined with DIY shops, good if you want to do small replacement works in your home for shower heads and taps, cords, you name it. There are a handful... More

We briefly drove through China town during our visit to Port Louis. The place is teeming with food joints and can get super crowded at certain times of the day. We could not find a spot to park the car and get out and explore. The food available is going to be mostly chinese and you can go and try... More

Not worth the journey to walk to this. Must be the worst China Town I have ever seen. Only a couple of shops and nothing of interest. Give this a miss.

I was excited to see the Port Louis China town, but upon arrival at the China Town Gates a very creepy feeling came over me. The whole place is dirty, old, unkept and just plain uncomfortable. I was hoping to find a busy Chinese restaurant, which would be a good sign of good food, but I couldn't find any that... More
