It is the most simple Chinatown I’ve ever known. I’ve been more than 10 Chinatowns in many cities/ countries but this is the least busy, colourful one, maybe because the population of Chinese people here is minority compared to Indian community. If you don’t have...More

We strolled through china town, but compared to other china towns we saw in our travels, this one was nothing special. If you are short on time, skip it altogether.

Wow! I really enjoyed this little chinese spot in Mauritius! It is curious to see how did they developed “their heimat” over there. I recommend at least a visit.

Not so crazy as expected, but still a lot of fuss going on. We were also there on a weekend day, maybe that`s why. Our kids were kind of shocked :) Maybe it`s a good experience for them.

The Chinese have traditionally occupied an important position in the life of Port Louis, and the area between the two 'friendship gates' on Royal St forms the centre of the city's Chinatown.

Not that big china town you would expect as in other countries. But nice place to visit with a few good restaurants. Some shops to make a good deal. Traditional Chinese pharmacy available.
