    Handmade model ship

    by Bob_Shan Written Sep 2, 2014

    Favorite thing: Mauritius is famous for handmade model ship, a kind of delicate art piece. Transporting it out of the country is a challenge but that is why it is precious :)

    Regular one cost around $100, bigger ones - usually much nicer - cost around $500, and you need $100 more to ship it back home

    Driving in Mauritius

    by Exomauritius Written Jan 31, 2008

    Favorite thing: In Mauritius, driving is on the left side of the road and drivers have to give way to traffic from the right. Visitors wit a driving license issued by a competent authority in their respective countries are allowed to drive during their stay in Mauritius.

    What to wear?

    by Exomauritius Written Jan 31, 2008

    Favorite thing: Take your best beach and casual wear. In the winter months (June - September) light woolen clothing is recommended for the evenings.
    Please show due respect when visiting Hindu religious places. Wear appropriate clothing and remove leather shoes and belts when entering the temples..

    Country of Mixed Cultures

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I loved this country as I must say I've loved all the places where I've been to. But Mauritians are happy, sincere and kind people.
    I visited Mauritius in Autumn which is best time at year if you want to relax. It's the beginning of high season and you can see it when most of the restaurants are almost empty at dinner time and at daytime you find beaches just for you two. Also weather isn't too hot.

    Favorite thing: A trip to Mauritius will not be complete without a boat ride or a cruise to admire the views of the island from the sea, and to enjoy the sea. I tooked a speed boat ride and it was a very fun experience.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are plenty of beautiful beach resorts in Mauritius, each with its own piece of beach paradise among the sun and the sea. It is interesting to look at the beautiful architecture and facilities of these beach resorts.
