Chinatown information

Lonely Planet review

The Chinese have traditionally occupied a quietly industrious position in the life of Port Louis. The region between the two 'friendship gates' on Royal St forms the centre of Port Louis' Chinatown. Here you'll see the rich mercantile life of the hard-working Chinese community, the busy Chinese restaurants and grocery stores, and the streets echoing with the unmistakable clatter of mah-jong tiles.
