Shopping in Mauritius

Beitragvon Pen » Sa Okt 23, 2010 10:55

Hi - We'll be in Mauritius soon, and I thought it may be a good idea to buy t-shirts for my family for Christmas - can anyone give me an idea of where the best place is to find bargain priced T-shirts (kids and adults)?

Thank you - I had more in mind markets - ie. which markets sell t-shirts at decent prices. And what I could expect to pay for a t-shirt for an adult? A child?

You will find t-shirts being sold everywhere. Quatre Bornes market is usually pretty good for clothing. You will find t-shirts being sold on the streets of Port Louis and in the market. For more expensive t-shirts the Caudan at Port Louis harbour and Grande Bay has some boutiques. There is also a bazaar in Grande Bay. At the Jumbo Score complex at Riche Terre ( ?? just north of Port Louis off a roundabout, past the Baie duTombeau turnoff) there's a large clothing store with large variety. Also the larger supermarkets/hypermarkets will sell them also. I am sure there will be places in the south also like Curepipe but I don't know those areas very well.

It will depend on what price, quality, etc you are looking for. Sellers on the street usually ask for more than they will sell for, especially if you are a non mauritian.

If you set a price before you go looking and decide to pay $x (or MR) and you pay that or less for something you liked then even when you find out later you could have paid less, you still won't be disappointed. At leat at the markets you can compare prices and listen to what others are paying before you buy.

Shopping in Mauritius is as diverse as the rest of island life. The islands reputation as a shopping paradise is well deserved thanks to the sheer diversity and quality of shopping opportunities. Ranging from duty free shops, shopping centres, arts and craft shops to beach hawkers and street markets, the shopping experiences in Mauritius are absolutely amazing.Grand Bay is the main shopping area on the island and is a shopping and leisure paradise. It was also the first area of the island to fully experience the tourist boom and many Mauritians head here for when they want a fun-filled night out. The area is great for its choice of restaurants, bars and discos.

Duty free Shops

There are a number of tourist only duty free shops on the island where you can make some great savings. Please note that you will need to take passports and valid air tickets along with you to take advantage of these savings. Alternatively you can make purchases at duty free shops on arrival and departure at the airport. Here you will find clothes and perfumes at discounted prices. There are also jewellery shops and consumer electronic shops offering duty free discounts. Payment can be made in both foreign currencies or the Mauritian Rupee and goods will be delivered at the airport on departure.

Markets

The traditional and colourful markets are a unique shopping experience which provides you with the opportunity to truly immerse yourself in the Mauritian way of life and gives you a chance to improve your haggling skills. The Port Louis market at the centre of the capital is the best example of this. Stalls of tropical fruits and vegetables side by side with medicinal plants and spices line the market. Another popular market is at Quatre Bornes which is every Thursday and Sunday. It specializes in textile products. Most major cities and villages in Mauritius have their own markets on specified days.If you love cooking you will be able to take back a variety of spices and pickles and do not forget to buy some vanilla tea or rum to try.

Shopping Centres

Caudan and the Port Louis waterfront shopping centres cater for leisure facilities and have a number of bars, restaurants, cinemas and casinos. Quatre Bornes and Curepipe shopping centres offer a variety of products all under one roof. At most shopping centres you will be able to buy clothes, fabric, jewelery, books and other products.

Thanks........
