airport bus?

by Deneen1

I keep reading that there is an airport bus, Bus 11, at the Marrakech airport, about .5 miles from the airport, and that is runs into town around the Djemaa el Fna.

How do I find this bus when I leave out of the airport? Are there signs to a bus stop or does someone know if I should walk toward the left or right after leaving the main entrance of the airport?

We're staying in the Gueliz area and I read in one guidebook that this bus runs there.

Any information would help.
Thanks!

Hi, yes and theres tips on my Marrakech page re transport and the bus into town - its right outside the entrance/exit door of the airport. and yes there is sign to show that it is the bus stop. Another yes, it goes into the Gueliz - the last time I was there in March I used it to get to the Gueliz - the bus driver was very helpful - and the bus follows a useful route. Cheap too - and maybe it shows those taxi driver sharks that not all tourists are stupid at throwing any exorbitant amounts of money at them mindlessly!

Nestled in amongst other cafe’s and restaurants is the Cafe N’Zaha. Both it and the Toubkal next to it serve a similar breakfast of breads, croissants, pancakes, tea/coffee and orange juice for a reasonable price.

The Palmery - thousands of date palms

by vtveen

The Palmery (or La Palmeraie) is a rambling oasis just northeast of the city.

There is a story, which says this palm grove was created by accident. Centuries ago in the days of the great caravan trading, merchants (or soldiers) refreshed themselves here with water and dates. The stones were spat out, creating the palm grove. But others say this is absolutely impossible, because these palms don’t have eating quality dates.

Any way nowadays there still are more than 150.000 date palms covering an area of 130 hectares. The palm grove is irrigated by ditches and wells. Some of them are abundantly growing; others do have some scanty leaves.

We visited the Palmery (from Majorelle garden) with a ‘petit taxi’ along the 5 km long ‘Circuit de la Palmeraie’; a meandering road through the palm trees, along beautiful mansions, some hotels and the golf course. On a couple of places camels and their guides are waiting for tourists, offering rides through the Palmery (our taxi driver was pushing us, but we were not interested). We made a couple of stops, making pictures and walking around through the oasis.
You also could visit the Palmery by a horse-drawn carriage.
