Marvellous Mauritius

Located in the south-western part of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius offers a wide range of activities for tourists ranging from hiking, beaches to shopping and fishing. It can be difficult to imagine how a country larger than Delhi but smaller than Goa, at 2040 sq km in area can have such a wide scope for tourists. Mauritius in fact consists of 4 separate islands which are Mauritius itself, St Brandon, Rodrigues and Agalega. Its capital, located on Mauritius is Port Louis.
Discovered by the Portuguese in 1505, Mauritius was subsequently held by the Dutch, French, and British before independence was attained in 1968. It is mainly an agriculture based country with tourism and industries contributing some of the revenue. Mauritius has a tropical type of climate with dry winter from May to November and hot, humid summer from November to May.
Many languages are spoken here, the official ones are English and French and the other widely spoken ones are Creole, Hindi, Urdu , Hakka and Bhojpuri. No, it is not a mistake , it is true that Hindi and Bhojpuri are important languages in the country. For all you food-lovers you wont feel homesick as the cuisine of Mauritius is a blend of Indian, Creole, Chinese and European. Not only is Mauritius blessed with beautiful landscape and terrain but also with exquisite cuisine, enchanting culture, a reasonably small population and a high literacy rate.
