China Town, Port Louis

1.0
Visit China Town to find a thriving collection of shops and restaurants with the flavor of the Far East. Homes, stores, and community buildings were established here by the Hakka Chinese in 1826. Today, the area's pagodas, restaurants, and small shops maintain the feeling of that time period, indicating a strong cultural lineage despite diversification in recent years to include influences from across East Asia. Come here to see the markets in full swing and indulge in some street food.

Where to stay in Port Louis

Port Louis doesn't have a huge range of places to stay--and the city is not the most bustling after dark. Still, you'll find a couple of options here and there. On the waterfront, a few viable luxury lodgings offer amenities such as annexed seafood restaurants, bars, and air conditioning. Alternatively, head farther down the coast for numerous better value options in dedicated tourist resorts. Even relatively small fishing villages have some decent homestay or guesthouse lodgings.
