Money Questions and Tailoring?

by red120

Hi everyone, have a few additional questions:

1. Would it be safe to leave passport and money at the hotels in Marrakech? I don't want to be using the visa every day to take out the day's amount of money, because I think the charge is quite hefty, so I want to take out say, a week's worth.

2. Do the hammans have places to store your junk like wallets, etc. while you are bathing? As I'm travelling alone, I can't ask someone to hold it for me.

3. Is there the opportunity to get tailored clothing cheap? Since I will be there almost 19 days, I think it's enough time to get stuff done, but I don't know if there are such services. Want some tailored leather goods, such as leather blazer, etc. made to measure.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Check out the beautiful Atlas mtns from the plane!

by angiebabe

I always ask for a window seat unless its a night flight as I just love being able to see what I can see from the air - flying over Spain and the Strait of Gibraltar and down the coastline with its white breakers and stretches of sand noticeable before the plane takes the flight path over Morocco countryside can be stunning and then the views over Marrakech....

Looking down over the olive orchards and mudbrick villages, the green meandering stretches of oases in the wide plateaus of dry brown with mudbrick villages are all sights Ive enjoyed looking down on from the air and being able to take photos of as well - also looking down to eagerly see if I can recognise familar....Telouet?, Ouarzazate? though usually not that far west.

Getting closer to Marrakech is the excitement of the sighting of the Atlas mountains sticking up from the vast areas of flatness - especially when they are snow covered! and the olive groves that grow prolifically around the city - and the scent of them often noted inside the plane - to seeing the rise of the mosque minarets and the new housing developments on the outskirts as the plane flies over - and to even the excitement of recognising the beautiful Menara gardens and its pavillion on the lake and the nearby palace.....

Train to Rabat

by earthflyer

There are 9 trains departing for Rabat.

Journey time 4 hours.

Tickets are around 101 dirhams in 2nd Class.

It's worth it to pay abit more and go 1st. still very cheap.

Please use prices as a rough guide only.

Jemma El Fna Square

by la0124

This is the geographical, social and cultural centre of the Medina. Pretty amazing actually during the day and night.

Daytime you can see snake charmers to women offering henna tattoo to storytellers. Then when the sky turns dark, wow!!!! Smell the various spices and food being offered. Food stalls, orange juice stalls, etc. dominates the square.

Quite a site.

Majorelle Gardens

by MichaelFalk1969

The Majorelle Garden, established by Frenchman Jaques Majorelle in the 1920`s and now owned by Yves St. Laurent, is one of the most unique private gardens in the world. The dark-blue villa around which the gardens are built now houses a Museum of Islamic Art. The fascination of Majorelle are the striking and contrasting colours (blue villa, green palm trees & banana plants, blue-white fountain, orange, yellow and green flowerpots).

Located northwest of the Old Town ( a petit taxi from the Medina should cost no more than 30 Dirhams), the Garden is very popular with tourists and often crowded, so try to come early (8 o`clock) or maybe an hour before closing time. Even at peak time it is an enjoyable experience, though.

Marrakesh

by shellseeker

Marrakesh was the last highlight of my round trip through Morocco and is my all-time-favourite of the country. I don't know why exactly but the Djemaa Square and the immense souq is something I'll never forget and when the day is clear enough and you see the whiteness of the Atlas mountains glittering in the distance you feel the magic in the air! And Marrakech is one of the few places I really want to be living one day for a couple of months... In need of any doctors? Then I better brush up my rotten knowledge of French :(
