I'm travelling to Marrakech with my 13 year old daughter late November, I wonder if anyone can help me with a few questions...
Firstly.. COST, whats the average cost for food and other items, food & drink (non-alcoholic)???? We are going for 1 week, how much would you recommend i take with me and also what are the costs of these excursions I keep reading about, they all sound amazing?? How much do they usually cost???
Secondly... What's the weather like in November?? Will I need jumpers for the evening?? T-shirts during the day???
Thanks for your help
Very common questions. Look around a little bit on the threads since all have been answered multiple times.
The average cost of food.I had lunch in the Djema el Fna yesterday and it was 78 dirhams for 2 people including 3 cokes.Conversly I had dinner in the Rotunda restaurant last night and it was 500 dirhams each including wine. Average 16dhs to the £.Depends on what type of excursion you want,a day trip to say Oulrika valley is around 800 dirhams in a grand taxi,return.A trip to the desert, overnight stay ,i suggest you contact hotel Ali or look at previous postings as there are so many, or book through your hotel.Weather ,yes,jumpers in the evening T- shirt in the day.As to how much money you should take with you,it depends on what you want to spend,how much your hotel is and what you want to do,buy,see.take as much as you can ,you can always take it back with you if its not in dirhams as it is illegal to take dirhams out of the country.
Travel Tips for Marrakesh
La Criee Berbere
La Criee Berbere, or Souq Zrabia, is the old slave market. Black African slaves, mostly from Guinea and Sudan, were sold here until the French took over the city in 1912. Slave markets were held at auctions here on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. In the early 1900s prices here ranged from £5 for a small boy up to £150 for a beautiful woman.
Today the market has been taken over by carpet salesmen. There are still auctions here, but they are held by Berbers, who bring their hand-made carpets and kelims in from the surrounding villages.
Take a ride in a Horse-drawn carriage, take a covered one if the weather is too hot. 80 Dh for 1 hour, 50 Dh for 1/2 hour, 30 Dh for a quick ride. You can tell the driver where to go, or just let him wander around. Fix the price before starting!!
Dawn in Place Djena El Fna
What I most like is to go to the terrace of the Café La France to see the sunset, it is like magic, all the mosques switch on the lights of it's minaretes and start singing one after the other depending on the importance of them. Local people start going inside the mosques to do their prays.
This place is very spectacular, always it is crowded, not only of tourist but also local people.
They are enjoying the site, listening and watching to the singers, the tell stories, the men that play the flute to the snakes and them dance, others that bring monkeys with them.
There are also some ambulant restaurants where you can eat some delicious dishes like pastela, kefta, etc. They are opened since late.
The badia palace
The Badia palace is in fact the royal palace
constructed by the most powerful ruler of the
Saadian dynasty'Ahmed Al-Mansour Ad-dahbi'.
1578 is when the buildings works took a start
and they would not get finished before 1594.
Now the palace is little more then a ruin.
But if you visit the Saadian tombs first you
can imagine what a rich and amazing palace
It must have been impressive only for it's size.
The inner court measured 135 by 110 meters
with a swimming pool in the middle 90 by 20 meters.
The picture shows the 'Koubba al Khamssiniyya' ,
-the pavilion of fity cubits. (referring to it's size).
The pavilion used to have a pyramid shaped
roof resting on twelve columns and was used
by the sultan for state audiences.
