5 things 'you have to see' in Mauritius
Your first thought about Mauritius will of course be its sandy beaches. But there’s much more to explore than that. This article on Xposé.ie celebrates street food, street art, and striking architecture. Curious travellers, it says, are ‘venturing beyond the confines of their beach’.
So what are the alternative experiences you simply have to sample?
First up, the street food in Port Louis – try the vegetarian gato pima – or a snack through a hatch from a street food stall in Pasteur Street at 10 rupees a go.
The Jummah Mosque on Royal Road is made from ‘hand-cut volcanic stones’, and took 36 years to build. Well worth a visit.
Also on Royal Road, take in the stunning graffiti produced by Chinese artist Wenna. Or, elsewhere (details given), check out the street art by Mauritian artists Brian Lamoureux and Evan Sohun.
City Press, a 40-year old, traditional printing press on Remy Ollier Street is a must, says Xposé: a refreshingly ‘unusual sight’ in our digital world.
Finally, take in the dumpling sellers of Chinatown – these particular dumplings are something else, and ‘unique to Mauritius’.
Something for everyone, surely? See Mauritius with a difference…
