There was no shopping in Port Louis. We just stay there for one hour at least, see the market on 15 min. The meat and chivkenmarket on 10 min. And go back to the car. I guess they park for free the first hour. Sugar museum not good (to boring ), botanical garden and Chateau Labourdenais was oke. Very expensive lunch in a restaurant how wasn't word the name "La poule D'Or", give the main back (so bad it was), had to pay the full price ?.
In a few words? This whole trip is too expensive gor what he is worth !!
