Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Snake charmers

by grets

From my journal:

'We see many snake charmers on our wanderings through Marrakesh, some much better than others. I wonder where they get the snakes from? This cobra was mediocre, we saw him in the Menara Gardens.'

Petite Taxi

by mrotsmit

The petite taxis are great, you can catch them anywhere near the Jemma El Fna, the only thing is that you absolutely must set the price before you get in. Like everyone else in Morocco the (petite) taxi drivers will try to get as much money, from you, as they can. Sometimes they'll mumble when you ask the price (shahal?) this is just a tactic, keep asking till you're sure he said "20 dirham - OK".

Patisserie Marocaine - in the Kasbah

by sue_stone about Patisserie Marocaine

Marrakech is filled with small, tempting looking patisseries selling little tasty treats, which mainly seemed to be made from nuts and honey - delicious!

One such patisserie was Patisserie Marocaine, which is located just across from the Saadian Tombs. After exploring the surrounding area we were in dire need of a mint tea and a snack so popped in for a quick afternoon tea. Patisserie Marocaine has windows filled with small cakes, and just a few tables inside. We ordered some mint tea and then Alison pointed out which tiny cakes we would like from the display.

The mint tea was delivered to us from a small cafe across the road which I assumed must be owned by the same people, or perhaps they just buy the tea from there and sell it on to their customers.

The tea cup was filled with mint leaves and the tea was good. The little cakes were also excellent. My sort of afternoon tea.

Bab Ksiba and Bab Agnaou

by sachara

From the south-western side you can enter the medina and kasbah through the Bab Agnaou and the Bab Ksiba.
From these gates you reach the part of the medina, where the Royal Palace, the Kasbah mosque, the Saadian Tombs and the Palais el- Badi are.
It's nice to experience the contrast between the busy traffic at the outside of the walls and the peacefullness at the inside. It looks like passing these gates, you enter another world.

Marrakesh December 2007

by jomalo

Marrakesh was great!

We travelled using easy jet - who were on time and everything you would expect from a budget airline.

We stayed in a Riad in the north of the Medina (http://riad-maroc.com/anglais/riad1.htm) which at first was a bit of a culture shock for two young people who have never left London before!

The riad provided us with free transfers from the airport to the riad (they use a local taxi driver called Aziz).

The taxi ride was great fun - the driving for a start was mental! but driving down a dual carriage way and looking in the rear view mirror and seeing 3 men of the larger variety on 1 bicycle was hilarious and then glancing to your right and getting a wave from a man on a moped with a sheep strapped to his lap was just bazaar!

We were taken as far as we could by taxi then up several suspicious looking alleys, then we were ushered into the door of the Riad which was curiously surrounded by maybe 50 locals. as we stepped in we were mind blown by the most beautiful garden lit up with fairy lights and lanterns.

We paid £30 per night for a larger room with a living area, a double bed and shower room all decorated to the highest standard. Breakfast is also provided in the cost and it was great, homemade piklets, pancakes and English muffins.

The first night we didn't dare venture out as we could see into the alley that the local gathering outside the door had only gotten bigger! The next day we spoke about moving to a hotel on Mohammed iv, however; that morning we also bumped into the owner of the Riad (Catherine - the maids call her CC) who explained that they were just dealing hash and would not cause us any problems.

So on venturing out we were greeted by yet another group of people queuing for hash from the local dealer - who stopped selling and shouted something down the line which caused the customers to line up against the wall and get out of our way. which was great! this happened every morning when we left and in the evening we felt even safer as there seemed to be several runners down the alleys who would ensure no one (even the residents) got in our way and even occasionally make sure we were got into our Riad without being pestered by kids who wanted to make a quick couple of quid.

We never ate at the riad as we always ate in the square on our way back from our day out (we only ate at stand one - the food was great and looks family own with mum cooking and the children serving and touting for business).

We always paid 20dhr for taxi rides wherever we went, which is about £1.25 - Your taxi driver may let other people into the taxi if you get a large taxi (Mercedes) Fiats are Petit Taxis and generally the driver will not allow anyone else in if he is carrying a tourist. We did see one large taxi with 7 passengers - five in the back and 2 in the front - its quiet funny to see.

We had a great time and plan on going back in the new year with friends.

I will update later with places to visit and eat.
