  Miniature Railway in Domaine Les Pailles
by ZenLady34

This place is situated 5km south of Port Louis. It is a former sugar estate which has transformed into a tourist trap.
We were taken there on one of our excursions and the prices they give are a robb of.
A part of the group took the miniature railway trip around the estate. They had to pay 150 RS and it took ten minutes and they were back!
No guide on the train who could have explaned which places they were passing by or anything! They came back asking: "what is this place? Is this Bois Cheri Tea Estate?"

To my experience Domaine Les Pailles is over priced and one can skip this place without a doubt.
