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.

Not much was happening in China Town. Nothing special. Not worth the stop we made. The whole of Port Louis seemed very quite that day.

It is a cultural thing that I pay it a visit. The place is not really for the average tourist unless you are interested to visit a crowded local market. Nonetheless, I was curious to see how the large Chinese population took root in Mauritius...More

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.

Do try hakka dishes like steamed pork with preserved mustard green (Moychoy Niouk). If you're looking for true authentic gems, I challenge you to find the Chu Feng Leung shop and try their traditional hakka cakes (hint: near Chinatown Deli Restaurant), especially fried bread fingers...More

Unless you need house hold goods. Just don't see why they would even put up the two signs " China Town", not even ! Maybe a hundred yards , maybe! A few hardware stores. That's it.,
