Mauritian travel isn’t all about white-sand beaches, turquoise water and palm trees. The island is one of the top destinations you can travel to and then fly on to other fascinating destinations.

There are three major destinations you can reach via Mauritius with Air Mauritius and visiting each one is a memorable experience.

Perth

One of the sunniest cities in Australia is only six hours and 30 minutes from Mauritius. Perth has a teeming art culture and a mix of grassed parklands, botanical gardens and natural bush. There are walking tours of the city with Aboriginal guides to learn more about the country’s indigenous art, food and history. Perth is known for some great wineries along the Margaret River region, where travellers can sample award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay varietals.

Singapore

Singapore is one of the world’s financial hubs and only seven hours and 10 minutes from Mauritius. Travellers can expect a tropical climate, fascinating architecture and a cultural mix. The famous food market, Lau Pa Sat, is every foodie’s dream, where you can find hearty beef noodles in thick gravy, creamy prawn laksa, or delicious sticky dim sum.

Nairobi

Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, combines growing urban sprawl with its world-famous wildlife. This beautiful African city is only four hours and 20 minutes from Mauritius. The Nairobi National Park is set on the city’s outskirts, making this one of the world’s only capital cities with a national park bordering it. The Karen Blixen house and museum are popular attractions and is where the writer of Out of Africa lived from 1914 to 1931.
