I am used to the sight of billboards along the highways that advertise a range of products. In Mauritius, however, there are no highways as are seen in large countries. Instead billboards are placed in most unusual settings. On top of walls that separate neighbouring houses:
In the space between the road and a house:
On the side of 3 storey buildings:
On the roof of a home:
Or the roof of an abandoned building:
On the roof of a store:
And, of course, at the entrance into the city:
The small island of Mauritius has made efficient use of its space in order to advertise its products. As a visitor, I found it interesting and innovative.
Have you seen innovative ways of placing billboards?
