Destination Details

Port Louis, Mauritius

Port Louis’ rightly famous central market, the center of the local economy since Victorian times, is a good place to get a feel for the everyday life of many locals. Watch the hawkers at work and buy some souvenirs. Most authentic are the wonderful fruit and vegetable sections (including herbal medicines and aphrodisiacs) and the meat, fish and seafood market. If you’re looking for souvenirs, a wide variety of Malagasy handicrafts are available, along with souvenir t-shirts of varying quality. The level of hustling here can be tiresome, however, you’ll have to bargain hard; start by slashing the price quoted by about 30% and get yourself a bargain.
