Port Louis, Mauritius - Mountain Peaks, Caudan Waterfront, Champ de Mars Racecourse, Talipot Palm Trees, Blue Penny Museum, China Town

Scenic, Mountaineering

With its extravagant setting underneath the imposing mountain peaks of Le Pouce and Pieter Both, Port Louis makes an intuition on anyone arriving on the main road from the airport – descending from the Central Plateau into the chaoticmetropolis centre with the Indian Ocean spread out in a perspective-defying fresco above the city is a wonderful experience.Despite being the national capital, the main fiscalcentre and the largestmetropolis in the country, Port Louis occupies a quite strange place in the consciousness of modern Mauritius. Its low-lying position has traditionally made it a detrimentalbackground, with disease in the 18th and 19th centuries habituallyshattering it, meaning that the professional classes have conventionally lived outside the metropolis, predominantly in the Central Plateau towns of Rose Hill, Moka, Vacoas and QuatreBornes.
