You can buy an amazingly wide range of items in Mauritius. The country has an enviable reputation for textiles production, particularly pull-overs and knitwear. Shirts, trousers, suits, dresses, suits for women, shorts, swimwear, basketwork, embroidery, pottery, cut stones and recycled glass are all very much in demand. Those who love cooking will be able to take back fruit jellies, chillies, and other types of spices and pickles. And don't forget to buy some vanilla tea or rum.
Culinary traditions from France, India, China and Africa have been passed on through generations. Along the years, each community has adapted and mixed each other's cuisine to their liking, which has resulted in a Mauritian cuisine. This can be seen in the Creole dishes which blend the different ingredients and culinary styles. The ever-present creole "rougaille" is served with a number of "achards" (pickles) or dals and rice from Indian origin.
Discos and bars are in plentiful supply in Mauritius. Most are found in Grand Bay, the main towns and coastal resorts.
