Wedding Tourism is a fast growing segment. The country hosts under water weddings, beach weddings and catamaran weddings and is now also organising Indian weddings. Besides, the country is also equipped with a wide range of adventure activities including zipline tours (largest in the world), sky diving, under water adventures, mountaineering, so the destination is best for combining adventure activities with MICE packages. Mauritius is witnessing a 25 per cent year-on-year growth in the MICE segment from India. MTPA also provides various incentives for MICE organisers from India, informed Anand. Mauritius offers a hybrid mix of continental and Indian cuisines and the country has a handful of Indian restaurants, said Anand.
