staying in fes alone

by piperrose

Hi

I am staying in Tangier with friends but really want to visit Fes. Is it safe to travel alone as a woman and also could I do the trip in one day or would it be better to stay overnight.
Is it quicker to travel by car than train ?

RE: staying in fes alone

by JamalMorelli

It is safe. Feel free to call me, Jamal Morelli. I am an ex-pat living in Fes. I could introduce you to other women that you could travel with in Fes, and get the most out of your experience. Probably, the only reason I would say make sure to have some connection with someone in Fes is that peoples temperatures are hot about the Lebanon issue, so it's good to have someone watching out for you. Contact me through www.morellistudios.com - there are phone numbers, e-mails, etc.
And it is always faster to travel by car (unless it is plane), if your car is up to it!
Good luck! Jamal Morelli

Or - another sure bet - book yourself in to a respected hotel and then have a authorized guide navigate you through the medina!

Or even better still - talk those friends of yours into making the Fes trip.

Take care...

Travel Tips for Fes

Climate

by keeweechic

Winter can be cold and wet in Fez with January usually being the coldest month. During the summer months the temperatures can go to the other extreme and even reach the high 30’sC. A comfortable time to visit is during September to November and April to June.

Andalus Medersa

by barryg23

A medersa is a religious building where students study muslim law and theology. It usually has an open courtyard, with a fountain (for ablutions) in the centre and students rooms overlooking the courtyard.

Andalus medersa was the first one I saw in Morocco and though by no means the most visited or celebrated of the many medersa's in Fes, or indeed Morocco, it was one of my favourites. Not too many tourists make it to the Andalus quarter and we had the whole of the medersa to ourselves. It's so quiet and peaceful in here that it's difficult to believe that only a door separates you from the madness of the medina outside.

Missing Risotto?

by JamalMorelli about Restaurant Nautilus

At Restaurant Nautilus, which is now located both on the basement and top floors within Hotel de La Paix, you can do bistilla and risotto, tajine and pasta, booze, tea and cigarette smoking. The place even sports a lute player to get buzzed to - Nice place, nice people, rockin food if you can't swing any at a friend's house... The risotto and safron - it's not the easiest dish to get right so as to please this Italian man (nothing compares to you, Tio Enrico...) and they do a decent job of it.

Medina

by iaint

As I had left myself a bit short of time to "do my own thing" in exploring the medina, my riad manager helped me to organise a 3 hour guided tour - my own guide for 250 mad.

In almost all respects it was a smart move. I learned a lot and saw a lot, plus no time was wasted getting lost!

I saw the tanneries, the Medersa Bouanania, the Zawiyya Moulay Idriss II, the Kairaouine mosque, a couple of souks, as well as being subjected to the hard sell in carpet, leather, metalwork & antique places.

The latter were the downsides. I don't like paying a guide to take me to his favourite haunts so he can pick up commissions.

People watching near Bou Jeloud at Bouanania

by JamalMorelli

I don't need to explain the tourist's inner need of people watching (though the reverse is strangely hated - being watched).

Scratch that itch, tourdonkey! Grab one of those teeny-tiny espressos or go for a big pot of tea and hang out on the balcony of the first big cafe to your left as you enter the medina from Bou Jeloud. (There will be men outside the cafe encouraging you to go in, in case you can't find it yourself) Panorama Bouanania.

Check your e-mail too, boo.
