This mountain-backed capital bustles with big-city commercial activity by day, and by night is quiet - except for Le Caudan Waterfront, with a casino, cinemas, shops, bars and restaurants. There's a Chinatown and a distinct Muslim area around Muammar El Khadafi Square. The city center is easily walkable. A good place to get a feel for city life is Port Louis Market, near the water in the heart of downtown. The Natural History Museum houses a stuffed replica of the dodo, which has been extinct since late 17th century. Visit the Mauritius Postal Museum, stop by Port Louis' oddly located Jummah Mosque, and admire Fort Adelaide, which so closely resembles a Moorish fortress locals call it the Citadel. The views from Fort Adelaide's hilltop and harbourside location are amazing. Père Laval - who is said to have converted more than 67,000 people during his 23 years on Mauritius - is remembered with a colourful plaster statue atop his tomb and shrine. Pilgrims swear by the statue's healing powers and many come to touch it.

Toamasina (Tamatave)
12/7/2023
12/7/2023

This town of 70,000 is home to the country’s largest port. Its once-fine colonial houses give Toamasina (Tamatave) a shabby elegance. It is a busy place with sailors and tourists, offering a variety of bars, restaurants and hotels. Most visitors spend only a day or two in town as the attractions are really found outside in the country. Visit the colorful market, where vendors display a wide array of produce, seafood and spices such as vanilla, cloves and black pepper, and locally made quality straw goods. A tour by rickshaw, the common local transportation, is a fun way to explore the town and get a glimpse into the daily life and activities of its people. Be prepared to bargain with the driver when establishing the fare. The official language is Malagasy, with French as the second language, spoken mainly in the cities.
