Mauritius Shopping

Shopping in Mauritius is an experience in itself. You can experience the Mauritian buzz in the various markets of the country. There are stalls upon stalls of fruits, vegetables, medicinal herbs and spices. Spices were introduced in Mauritius by Pierre Poivre in 1750 and these have gained popularity over the years. Spices and herbal teas are very popular with tourists and figure on the must-buy list for most visitors.

Other than this there is basketwork, embroidery, cut stones, recycled glass and pottery work which are in demand.
