To do at least once

July 3, 2019

There are fans of shopping, and then there are others … like me. Great walk on the Caudan Waterfront to the mill, just for the pleasure of admiring the view, and to soak up the atmosphere of the place. It is very pleasant to live it at least once. To be done early with a visit to the Citadel for a nice view of the port from the top of the hill. Botanical garden is a must

Capital City

April 2, 2019

The smell, noise and colours at the Port Louis market is unique. Great experience their to haggle with the vendors. The view of the capital city from the Citadel was superb. We enjoyed the quiet and calm of the botanical garden
