Neighbourhood
“The Chinese have traditionally occupied an important position in the life of Port Louis, and the area between the two 'friendship gates' on Royal St forms the centre of the city's Chinatown. Here you'll take in the rich mercantile life of the Chinese community, busy Chinese restaurants and grocery stores, and streets echoing with the unmistakable clatter of mah-jong tiles.”

Historic Site
“Popularly known as Adelaide Fort, this place gives you a chance to experience the stunning views of the city of Port Louis. Adelaide was the wife of William II but after Britishers captivated it, they renamed it to Citadel Fort. The Moorish style architecture gives it an archaic appeal and all the arches are horseshoe shaped.”
