A good tour of an old sugar refinery. Well restored, displays are informative. Take at least an hour to stroll through the factory displays. Nice row of shops afterward. Didn’t have a chance to eat at the restaurant, but noted how crowded it was.

The bus doesn't go directly to the entrance. You'd need to take a bus to the Pamplemousses roundabout and walk to it from there. That would take no more than 10 minutes.
