Mauritius has abolished taxes on most shopping items, meaning that its a great place to come to buy luxury goods, such as designer clothing, jewellery, perfume and electrical goods. Tourist shopping centres are located around the island, with a good selection of designer shops at the Caudan Waterfront complex in Port Louis, as well as in the smart resort town of Grand Baie. For real bargain hunters, join the locals at the textile markets and clothing factory outlet stores of Curepipe, Quatre-Bornes and Rose-Hill. In terms of traditional handicrafts, Mauritius offers little of huge interest, with the possible exception of locally produced baskets, tea, spices and fabrics. Another popular souvenir are model ships, for which Mauritius is famous.
