Mauritius: The New Chinatown

According to an article on CNN, Mauritius’ much-loved Chinatown has been transformed by a new generation on the island.


“A group of young people formed the New Chinatown Foundation to try and bring vibrancy, and identity to the district,” says the piece. “New Chinatown Foundation members organize street cleaning and pull together to repaint neglected buildings. Stephan Ah-Sen was born in Mauritius and is part of the group. He organizes flash mob dances in the middle of Chinatown to help drum up energy within the district’s center.”

Chinatown, near Port Louis’ central market in Mauritius, looks set to continue being a colourful assault on the senses, capitalising on its history of more than 160 years as an epicentre of Mauritius.
