Two Holidays in One with Emirates
One of the advantages of flying with Emirates and connecting at Dubai, however, is that you can stop-off for up to three days in Dubai and get excellent hotel rates, giving you two holidays at a very reasonable price (virtually the price of one vacation), while breaking up what may be a very long trip.
For instance, the flight to Mauritius is 12 hours long from London.
In addition, Emirates offers excellent cheap flights to Mauritius while still maintaining its impeccable reputation for high quality, service, and luxury. I don’t know how they do it, really. I suppose it’s the oil money.
Mauritius is a Rare Gem
Particularly for North Americans, a flight to Mauritius will be more expensive than one closer to home. But Mauritius is a rare gem that truly needs to be experienced.
Mauritius is a favourite destination of many in Europe, Asia, and Australia. In 2011 Mauritius was voted for the third year in a row as the World’s Leading Island Destination (http://www.worldtravelawards.com/award-worlds-leading-island-destination-2011).
The BBC World News in partnership with Futurebrand surveyed over 3,000 people on their perceptions of destinations with regard to five categories, including tourism, and Mauritius came in top, with tourists placing increasing importance on good value for money (See BBC’s Mauritius a top travel destination for 2011).
Mauritius is acknowledged as a place where you can get excellent value for money and where you can experience real luxury within your reach.
Indeed, it has been said that Mauritius has the highest concentration of glamorous hotels on earth, all of them on their own spot of the country’s miles of glorious white sand beaches.
You can find exclusivity and style here, even if at home you may not be exactly living the lifestyle of the rich and famous. And the hospitability of Mauritians is a famous and well-deserved reputation they have earned.
Mauritius is a Healthy Society,
very safe to visit
Not only is Mauritius a stunningly beautiful island, it is a buoyant, healthy, stable, orderly, democratic, self-confident, and economically-growing society.
In many other islands, tourists have to be blocked off from the locals because of the tremendous differences in income, higher levels of crime, and the general disorderliness of the non-tourist areas.
You will not have to worry about that in Mauritius.
The people are warm, hospitable, and very patriotic. They have a very diverse and unique society about which they are justly proud and are only too willing to tell visitors about.
They speak French, Creole, English, Hindi, Arabic, Tamil, Telegu, Marathi, Hakka Chinese, and are dominated by the Roman Catholic, Hindu, and Muslim religions which all have lived together in harmony side by side for centuries.
For all their tradition, they are also a very modern people as well. Ralph Lauren, Principles, Marks and Spencer’s, and other major clothing brands are actually made in Mauritius and you will see their clothes commonly worn and sold in the country.
Cheap Flights to Mauritius:
Low Season, High Season,
and “Winter” in August!
One last point about booking your cheap flights to Mauritius.
That is, remember that Mauritius is in the Southern Hemisphere which means that their winter and summer is opposite from the Northern Hemisphere.
Mauritius is technically a sub-tropical country with many microclimates. Because Mauritius was formed from a volcano, the height differences between the centre and the coasts are significant, and it actually affects the temperature, up to 5° C (9°F) at times.
The winter period runs from May to September and hotel and flight rates can drop from 30 to 50% during this period. That is the Mauritian low season.
The Mauritian winter in the centre of the island can be like a rainy September in England. Maximum daytime temperatures can still be at 20° C, especially on the coast where it is hotter.
From January to March is the cyclone season in Mauritius.
Mauritius is well prepared for these, and it is actually very curious how many Mauritius actually look forward to cyclones as opposed to fearing them, as happens in other countries. Mauritians will tell you how the cyclones help keep the place clean by giving the country a good washing every year!
After a bad experience in the 1960s, Mauritius instituted very rigorous building codes and safety procedures, and very little damage is ever done during a cyclone since then. It is one of the admirable things about the island.
As a tourist, however, you will not have to worry about that, particularly if your vacation is well-timed.
Securing cheap flights to Mauritius will be your first step to a dream vacation, in a luxurious and stunningly beautiful environment, surrounded by beautiful and happy people, pleased to see visitors who are also coming to enjoy some of the most delightful places on God’s green and turquoise-blue earth.
