travel time to tangier from fez

by browneyegirls

Can anyone tell me how long a train takes from fez to tangier? are they frequent?

I will be in fez for a day and i am not sure whether to stay overnight there, or in tangier. Where is niceer to stay out of fez or tangier?

i will then travel on ferry to algecrias ( 2hrs), then take a 4 hr trin journey to malaga. i want to get to malaga at a reasonable hr

RE: RE: travel time to tangier from fez

Trains from Fes to Tanger take about 5:30 hours and leave at 01:50, 07:00, 09:00, 13:20, and 17:00. Schedules at http://www.oncf.ma/scripts/horaires1.asp. You'll want to leave at 9:00 if you want an afternoon ferry, which requires a connection in Sidi Kacem, but conductors are very helpful, and a lot of people will be making the connection with you. First class is well worth the small premium.

Overall, Fes is nicer than Tanger and you get more for your money. More to the point, why bother to find your way around in Tanger if you will only be here long enough to sleep? I would say: extend your Fes time so you are actually able to enjoy your day there.

If getting to Malaga at a reasonable hour is a value, you could consider taking the bus to Malaga. It only takes 1:45 hr (http://www.ctsa-portillo.com/ima/pdf/algeciras.pdf), and the bus station is right across from the train station (both a 10 min walk from the port).

You will usually get to Algeciras faster if you take the cheaper FRS boat to Tarifa (35 minutes plus 15 minutes to disembark and clear customs) and then the free green shuttle (keep your boat ticket!) to Algeciras. The FRS boats leave every 2 hours and never run into traffic jams at the dock since they are the only company in Tarifa.

Travel Tips for Fes

Donkeys have right of way

by MichaelFalk1969

Many passages in the Medina are so narrow that the only means of transport is either human labour or a donkey. It is incredibile what these sorry animals have to shoulder here - don`t be surprised when you see one with several TV-sets or refrigerators on its back. When you hear the sound "barak, barak", best get out of the way quick, a donkey is coming and you don`t want to get run over. The donkey has always right of way.

Ville Nouvelle country

by JamalMorelli

The ville nouvelle is lovely to me. It doesn't have any of the feel of ancient mystery or magic but it has great examples of creativity in commercial architecture in Fes and an island of country, which brings us to this tip. If you are staying at or near the Grand Hotel near the garden a short walk will take you to this stretch of country. It is where I run every morning...

Couscous, salads, sandwiches

by 78Eva about Sandwich Florence (Flurans)

I don't know how many times I ate at Sandwich Florence in Fes when I lived there. It's a good, cheap place to go to frequently. The owner and his son were very friendly. After a while, when they know you, they are even nicer, and you often get a banana or a yoghurt as dessert for free.
It doesn't look very fany, the usual little eating place at the side of the road with a few tables and tiled floors, but the food is good and I think the place is clean. I never heard of anyone getting an upset stomach there (in contrast to the little restaurant that is closest to the school). I usually came here for couscous. Vegetarian couscous was 2,50 $ and with meat 4-5 $. One portion really fills you up.
You can also eat Harira, the Moroccan soup, differents meats and omelettes, salads and french fries.
You can get soft drinks and bottled water.

Medersa Bou Inania

by Veroali

Medersa means a theological school or college of Islam. This Medersa is located near Bab Bou Jeloud, one of most crowded lanes in Fes Medina.
It was built in 1350 by Merenid Sultan. The wood work and ornamentation is perfectly made, in green, white and braun color. Opposite the entrance door is the prayer hall and on the right the Minaret.

Views from Borj Sud

by barryg23

From Borj Sud, there are excellent views over Fes El-Bali, giving an idea of the layout of the medina and just how vast it really is. The best way to get here is by petit-taxi and it costs about 6 Dh one-way from the Ville Nouvelle. Other good areas to get a panaroma view over Fes are from the Merenid tombs and Borj Nord, both North of the medina.
