Paradise capital


Yes it is in Africa, but not much gives that away when making your way to Mauritius, as the degree of cultural diversity is high here in the richest city of the continent. Chinese, Indian, French, and yes indeed, African influences all merge in Mauritius and vie for your attention. Besides exploring and enjoying the cultural highs of all cultures and exploring the more historical areas of the city (Port Louis is a city with a large amount of historical sights dating back to the colonial days under French and British rule), the fantastic beaches and nature inland can keep you busy for days. Mauritius is indeed not your ordinary paradise destination. [Review by travelindicator]
