    24/7 damn stupid stuff !! making a concert to make people come there ! guess the profits the businesses there made was equal to the price of the concert ! they could have simply given the money to the businesses in that case !
    Energy wastage !!
    Should sensitize the population on wasting less energy and buying near their own places ! Surely this is irresponsab ! surtout ek problem pollution ek climatique !
    #FAIL !!!

    Was there. Not much to do though. I mean, there was enough activity to see, but nothing to participate in! But I went just to see how the 24/7 was organized.

    My major problem were the traffic jams. I spent 2hrs getting to Grand Bay, and out! Got a small parking in front of a shop, in the back-streets of Grand Bay. Not too far from the center, fortunately.

    About business being made, I personally did not see many people shopping. Most were sitting on the beach, watching the concert.

    24/7 in other countries doesn’t work like that. It’s nothing special for them. It’s just that people don’t have time during the day, so businesses have gradually started opening at night to cater for people wanting to do stuff after work. Restaurants open to allow people to dine out, then maybe a trip to the theater or cinema. Or just casual shopping.

    In Mauritius, it’s like a festival. So much that at Grand Bay, I thought it was a night-time fancy fair. I guess Mauritians are just not used enough to the concept of dine-out night-life.

    @Inf : You said it right, its more like an opportunity for families to get out at night and enjoy. In fact, I go there for the same reasons too, checking out what and how it has been organised, meeting people, and taking pics :P

    @inf: completely agree with you. the concept of 24/7 in mauritius is a nice start because we have to start somewhere… but i think that it is not heading in the right direction… like you said, for me from the start 24/7 was just a fancy fair where you could get out at night with the family and buy cheap (can i say tasty? ;p) fast food in a relatively secure location. for the concept of 24/7 to really work, a change of mindset of the population which is for the great majority, including me, which rather stay at home, watch tv and go to bed…

    Well, the 24/7 is not really to open the shops all night i think.
    It’s more like an event with animations, musics …
    It’s quite a good thing for Mauritius because people are coming and it’s friendly.
    People get out of their houses and see other part of the island.
    Not really sure the shops are making much more sales … but it’s better than having a dead island with everything closing a 5 pm and nothing to do during the evenings.

    mauritius is too undeveloped for something “grandiose” like that,,,,, also the main SHIT WAS TO SAVE ELECTRICITY LOL….I CAN’T SEE HOW THE FUCK THEY CAN SAVE ELECTRICITY!,…..BIGGEST FAIL EVER…

    i am looking forward to the New ebene,… that would be amazing/…
    why these idiots did not think of a mini airport in ebene?…would that help mauritius in developing?…

    Hi all! Was at the 24/7 festival at Grand Bay on 19th of December. There was a singer at big building with Emtel Advertisment the traffic lights at between 17:00 and 18:00. The picture in the middle top row below Quelques photos on this page. Does anybody by chance know, who this great guy with the impressive voice is?

    Kind regards,
