Weekend in Tangier

by diverbh4

I will be traveling to Tangier by myself as a little side trip March 12-14 and was wondering what are good things to see/do there.
Also what is Morocco/Tangier well known for producing(my little souvenir).

Tangier is best seen with the help of a local guide in my opinion. If you wander into the Medina you are bound to get lost. Also the guide can show you around the places you like to see. To get a guide its best if you ask at your hotel - there is a government type organisation that provides sight seeing guides and they are not too expensive. Morocco is great for any handicrafts especially metalwork and intricate jewellery or artefacts and of course those hanging lights ! But rugs and carpets are great too but you need to have a purpose and be patient and bargain hard.

Leathergoods are sold everywhere in Tangiers too as they are everywhere in Marocco. Marocco is big leathergoods producer.

The exciting about Tanger IS the ability to get lost and find things a guide would never show you, the ancient buildings leaning and almost touching at the peaks, Mick Jaggers hangout in the 60's, Cafe Hafa to see the sunset and sip mint tea etc.
A guide is not required in Tanger, just a half decent map but even these are not always necessary as many of the roads in the medina (in particular) are not shown, as for Marrakech and other cities.
Things to see, without a guide - the beach, Place de France, Grand Socco, Mendoubia Gardens, Caves of Hercules (14Km Cap Spartel), The Kasbah, Teatro Cervantes, The American Legation/ Museum, Musée d'Art Contemporain de la Ville de Tanger, Hotel Continental for old style architecture, Forbes Museum.
I may have a map so get in touch if interested.

Argan oil. A nutty flavour oil which can be used for cooking but there is also a cosmetic version. So if you are buying clarify which you want.
Although not originally from Tangier but a region further south it is very Moroccan!

Travel Tips for Tangier

Hire a guide.

by Rraul52

If you don't want to be harassed by the aggressive vendors and want to avoid all the tourist traps I suggest you hire a private guide. I was able to find an excellent guide in Rick Steves Spain/Morroco tour book. Our guides name was Aziz who turned out to be a real treat for my wife and I. After talking to Aziz and telling him what our interests were and what we wanted to see we experieced Tangier minus the tourists and tourist traps. We were not approached once by vendors and it seemed that everywhere we went everybody knew Aziz. I highly recommed hiring a private guide when you go to Tangier if you want to get a real feel for the people and their rich culture.

The Weather in Tangier

by Redang

It is very important to know it before the visit:
- www.weather.com/outlook/travel/businesstraveler/local/MOXX0008
- weather.yahoo.com/forecast/MOXX0008.html

How to transform from Fahrenheit to Celsius? Deduct 32, divide by 9 and multiply by 5.

Example: 85 Fahrenheit, minus 32 = 53, divided by 9 = 5,89 by 5 = 29,4 Celsius.

DAR EL MAKHZEN or SULTAN's PALACE

by LoriPori

The Dar El Makhzen was built by Sultan Moulay Ismail. While this Palace is not the largest a Sultan could reside in, the DAR EL MAKHZEN is still tastefully finished with wooden ceilings, arabesques, marble fountains and two inner courtyards.
The Palace was abandoned in 1912 and was later turned into a museum of Art and Architecture.
Entrance to DAR EL MAKHZEN MUSEUM or Musee De La Kasbah, is one Euro or 10 dirhans.

THE GRAND MOSQUE

by LoriPori

The GRAND MOSQUE is said to have been the site of a Roman Temple and at one time housed a church built by the Portuguese.The Mosque is unique in having square towered minarets instead of the usual round ones, but as far as mosques are concerned, the building itself is quite small and unimpressive.

Typical top of the minaret

by matcrazy1

There are very few muslim mosques in my country, Poland, and none in the area I live. So, it was very interesting for me to see many of them at my first day in Morocco, just in Tangier. Unfortunatelly, all of them were closed for me as a non-muslim.

I surely first paid attention to tall minarets that is thin towers on or near a mosque from which traditionally a man (a muzzeine) calls Muslims to pray five times a day. In Tangier's mosques, voive of alive muzzeine is replaced by a tape record transmitted by four loudspeakers put on an upper part of a minaret.

The minaret of Sidi Bou Abib Mosque dominating Grand Socco is typical in shape: square and topped by thinner, square as well, tower roofed with green (generally royal and muslim, saint colour) tiles.
