I have recently travelled in Japan and Sri Lanka and found that most of the places I wanted to see are inundated with Chinese tourists. The average bus load make more noise than a plague of starlings and they push accommodation prices up by sheer weight of numbers. I would very much like to see Mauritius and am thinking of visiting this (European) winter. Can anyone advise me if I'd be heading into another Chinese invasion?
What are the best months weather wise for a visit?
Hello, sorry if not posted in the correct place!
Hubby and I are landing in Mauritius on 11th Sept and looking to take a taxi to the North coast. Was just wondering if anyone wanted to cab share.
Happy travels :)
Myself and my boyfriend are looking to spend two weeks in Mauritius and two in Reunion. We are in our early 20's and are looking to go for the more adventure side of both islands than the luxury.
We are looking for advice on budgeting (How much money we will need for the full month, and what kind of budget accommodation we can expect to find).
Any tips anyone has is very much appreciated!
Thanks so much!
I've just came back from a 10 day trip to Mauritius and I can highly recommend the Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa. It's located in a non touristic area and offers all the luxury details you could ask for. A relaxing place to enjoy, explore and indulge.

This is important to animal lovers. I have just returned from mauritius and am horrified to hear that the catch and kill has been re introduced after an international outcry last year.
They are taking dogs including pets and sterilised ones and keeping them in horrid conditions before killing them. There are humane ways of dealing with this and sterilisation and education has been proven to work. They are now blaming dogs for causing rtas. The driving in mauritius is terrible and well known…
Considering flying from KL to Mauritius in October.
I hear it may be only worth several days at most so I am looking to travel to other locales/countries.
What are the best transport options to visit nearby more interesting countries?
Are there ferries and boats going or are planes the only option?
Air Asia is opening up the KL to Mauritius route with starting fares fairly cheap.
It is a long way to go-about 8 hours from KL after I travel 8 hours from Australia.
I have done much of Asia and thought a new destination would be good.
However my neighbour who has been there many years ago says it is not as good as many Asian countries.
Does it have a distinctive culture, food, attractions,cheap accommodation, friendliness of locals etc????????
Another option is to use Mauritius as a…
We are travelling to see our family in Western Australia in October and planning a couple of weeks in Mauritios en route.
So many options! We are a fairly fit mid-late sixties couple looking for a quiet stay to enjoy relaxing beach life with some swimming and snorkelling - preferably snorkelling close to the shore for a nervous snorkeller - me!
We are hoping to book a small hotel or guest house rather than the huge 5* resort hotels if possible.
Any advice on location and accommodation…
