Cities of the World MAURITIUS
The little island, lying in the center of the Indian Ocean is a real tropical paradise. Along the white sandy beaches and shaded by coconut palm trees, there are many luxury hotels.
We can take excursions to the nearby islands or take a dive in the turquoise blue water. In the center of the island, on the top of a volcanic plateau, emerald green sugar cane plantations can be found. On the Domaine Les Pailles estate, we can glimpse how rum and sugar are produced from sugar cane. We can try Indian dishes and look at the colorful Hindu temple.
We might enjoy the Sega dance and taste the teas from the Bois Cheri plantation. We might also take a Jeep tour through the Black River Gorges National Park and look at the marvelous waterfall of Chamarel, while in the zoo, the famous pink pigeon and the golden bat can be found. In the city, there is the Blue Penny Museum and one of the world''s most beautiful tropical parks, the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden.
