Tourist shopping

Definitely for the tourists, but having said that, it is a pleasant area, with plenty of shops and eateries.

superb place. The best place in the vicinity. Great view. Best shopping area. The promenade is crowded during weekends and evening hours. Good experience.

Out of all the places to visit on this fantastic island the Capital is in my view the last one on the list. Beaches, Parks etc are far better choices for your time here. One hour walk around and a lunch is all it takes to fully absorbe that site.

Don't go. It's overrated. Waste of time. Most cities with a waterfront have a better version than this. Port Louis is very congested. The umbrella attraction was incredibly overrated. Total waste of time unless you want to go to a mall.

A lot of traffic congestion to get both in & out of town. Our taxi dropped us at the harbour but by 50 minutes we were ready to go. The meat & vegetable markets were interesting with A lot of photo opportunities. The rest of the area we felt was simply a tourist trap

Situated in the centre of Port Louis, the Caudan actually offers ample shopping, quick meals, fine dining, the latest Bollywood movies and much more. Here's a gathering place for visitors and Mauritians alike. Local attractions like the Post Office, Aapravasi Gat and the Central Market are easily reached by foot.
