single female travel and shopping trip

by josephinebc

hi
I really want to go to marrakesh on a shopping trip for lamps,throws and fabrics .I know there are some cheap flights around but what i am looking for is recommendations for a reasonable hotel near to main shopping areas suitable for a single female .
Is it easy and reasonable to get things shipped back to the uk ?
The cost of airport transfers ?
And any other suggestions that may be useful
josephine

Plenty of budget accommodation is available around the Djma el Fna area, & where you need to be for buying you lamps and fabrics. The hotel Islane is convenient and safe. Also consider staying in Guilz area for a bigger choice of hotels & some night life. The hotel Tolousain is popular with budget travellers.
Regarding shipping, The cheapest easiest method is by post, Max weight 30KG = 1115Dh (£90)Economic rate. You will need to know the times the customs officer will be at the main post office & you will have to let him examine every item you are sending.
You will need receipts/invoices for the goods. Everything you send must be wrapped in blue sacking which is readily available in the souk. You should stitch the sacking yourself after examination. Use a waterproof pen to address your parcel. There maybe people at the post office to help you.
Alternatively you can pay for excess baggage and bring everything back with you. You will have to declare these goods and possibly pay VAT, there is no duty on handicrafts.
From the airport take the bus for 20Dh one way/30Dh return or taxi 60 to 100Dh, you have to haggle.
Hope that helps

Glad to see Sue/windcity has already answered as I was going to say she has lots of knowledge on shipping!
As for what to see and where to stay also check out our travelpages - mine for example! - i have tips in my pages that aimed to be helpful - that also include recommendations for Hotels Islane and Toulousain, Hotel Foucould is also pretty good and mid-budget, also have a read on my tips about shopping and buying things in Morocco and Marrakech - along with other VTers pages too

All the best, I love many of the beautiful items that can be obtained in Morocco - so many great colours, esp rugs and textiles, leather pouffes are excellent too

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

exotic smells and myriad of colour

by andreaRachid

I have been a number of times to morocco and will be arriving in marrakech on 19th september. Im told right now it is around 34 degrees, it gets pretty nippy at night so take something warm, take an umbrella coz they do get sudden downpours, ver short but heavy. Taxis are cheap in general but arrange the price before you get in coz they tend to charge higher prices to tourists. Most places serve Halal food and range from cheap to expensive. Marrakech is very central to take tours. From the voyage du routiers (bus station) buses are cheap and go often. I myself will be staying three weeks in ouarzazate, this is 5 hours from marrakech and cost around 8 euros. Ouarzazate is the Hollywood of Africa, Babel, Gladiator, kingdom of heaven is currently being filmed there and right now prince of persia is beining filmed. You can tour the film studios and there are a few castles to visit, accomadation is cheap there, the locals are the most friendly of all morocco and many can speak a little English.The cach ride from marrakech will take you through the Atlas mountains..its superb views all the way which maked the trip seem much quicker than 5 hours.
Be careful when shopping in marrakech they ask extortionate prices and usually you can bargain down to 50%of original asking price...there are many tourist police in marrakech as many tourists get cheated but if you have your wits abut you you will be fine.Have fun! Eating Harira soup in place jemna fna and buying chebakia from the cheeky chappy Hassan in the souk there.

Covered streets in the souqs

by johnsakura

You just have to get lost in the souqs. You can't even see the sky which will make you feel weird when comming out of it. You then see the strong sun shining while being used for a couple of hours inside the souq with great shadow.
In summer time the average temperatura is above 40 degrees celcius and this type of coverage is essencial to smoth the temperature a little bit.
The most common materials to cover the souqs are palm fronds.

Aicha Number 1

by johnsakura about Street Vendors

ok, so you'll find so many restaurants on the main square that it will be hard to choose one. Eating on the main square can actually bring you stomach problems and more serious stuff. I never got a thing!!! All my friends usually go to fancy restaurants and they all get sick and I don't. I'm vegetarian and food quality concerns me much.
I already went to Marrakesh many times and I always go to the some place where also the majority of maroccos also go cos she's very well known for having good food. Its the Main Square Restaurant Number 1 from Aicha. She's very nice, also some worker like Moname, Hassan, Rachid etc are great! try this one. Try the vegetarian couscous, tomato salad, potato cookies, fried eggplant....
Meat has not a very good reputation in Morocco and I'm not talking as a vegetarian now! believe me... you can get really sick indeed eating meat.
Water from the tap in marrakesh never did any harm also...

get lost in the souks

by jacobzoethout

Take a dive in the souks; you will definitely get lost in the maze of narrow colourfull market street. Being a western tourist you will attract lots of attention from the salesmen and from children and young men who want to be your special guide.

The inner courtyard of Dar Mnebhi

by sachara

The Marrakech Museum is housed in the Dar Mnebhi, a nicily restored traditional Moorish palace from the 19th century. It was originally the house of Mehdi Mnebhi, a defence minister in those days.

The palace has a wonderful inner courtyard, the central and most striking part of the palace. In the courtyard are three marble bassins with fountains. Only the building with its abundance of the zellij tiles and stuccowork makes it allready worth to visit the museum.
