One of the best ways to experience Mauritius like a local is to rent an Airbnb. This was our home in Beau Bassin, Mauritius. We absolutely loved it!!! Have you ever used Airbnb? What was your experience?
Quatre Bornes Market, Mauritius: A colorful shop to match its colorful, friendly owner. After first posing awkwardly for the photo, we decided to start asking her questions about the incense she was selling and that seem to loosen her up.
Port Louis, Mauritius: There is no better way to get acquainted with both Mauritian history or its presently thriving economy than spending a day in Port Louis. Tours of Port Louis will usually include stops at the Central Market, the Natural History Museum and the Blue Penny Museum. If, like us, you are not museum people, then we would definitely recommend spending a day in Port Louis exploring the city on foot.
Chinatown, Port Louis, Mauritius: A street vendor serving up a steaming bowl in Chinatown. Within walking distance of the Central Market and located between two “friendship gates” on Royal Street is Port Louis’ Chinatown. It is perfect for street photography. Capture street scenes on busy streets as locals go about their business with textured and colorful old buildings as the backdrop.
B-A-N-A-N-A-S: Just love how the banana salesman went the extra mile to present his bananas by hanging them from the ceiling. Head over to our blog to get a glimpse of the Real Mauritius and its beautiful, colorful and friendly people in a stunning and honest photo essay.
La Route Du Sel, Tamarin, Mauritius: Driving along the main road past Tamarin (located in the West), you will come across the Tamarin Salt Pans known as La Route du sel. Built in the 18th century to process salt, these glistening pans appear quite magical in the early morning light.
