Places to visit in Port Louis District include the Port-Louis harbor, Caudan Waterfront, Casinos, Desforges Street,Jummah Masjid, bazaar and shopping malls.

Port-louis has the biggest harbour on the island. A sugar terminal has been built very near to the harbor for the exportation of sugar-cane which is the number one pillar of Mauritian economy.The harbor has over the decades been extended through reclaimed land. The Caudan Waterfront for example which is just next to the harbor has been built over these reclaimed pieces of land.

The city is also the biggest business hub on the island and most government departments are situated in Port-Louis. Given the number of people that work in Port-Louis , this leads to a chaotic situation traffic-wise on week days. People from all over the island travel to Port-Louis and many roads become congested.This is why the government is trying to decentralise the business to business parks away from Port-Louis , one such example is the Ebene Cybercity.

During the night the city is empty most night life being concentrated around the Caudan Waterfront where people have dinner or watch a movie
