Marrakesh during Easter

by mrrockman

Hi!

I am considering taking a trip to Marrakesh during the Easter weekend this year (April 6-9). However, I have read that the city is over-crowded with tourists at that time. Would anyone recommend taking a trip there during that week? Or is it better to schedule a trip for another time of the year?

RE: RE: Marrakesh during Easter

by JamalMorelli

Overcrowded still means a good time in Marrakesh - and there's always enough of a balance of locals to make it a really fun gig. Sounds like a good plan... and the weather should be sweet.

And there's so many lovely options including awesome hikes in the Toubkal just a fast hour drive from the city...

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Morocco absolute essentials

by aaaarrgh

Light clothing - its hot most of the year. In the city I felt more comfortable wearing a decent shirt and long trousers or long shorts.

Certainly in the countryside T-shirts are seen as 'underwear' and shorts can be seen as riskée(?). Women in our group were asked to pay a small 'fine' for walking through a village in short sleeves and shorts!! Toilet paper or tissue is absolutely essential. Outside of your nice hotel you won't find much toilet paper. Buy a cigarette lighter (or matches if you can find any) to burn the remains in the countryside, if you plan to poo on-the-hoof :-) Loose change always useful for tips. Euros or dollars are better - they are smaller than British ££'s - if you don't yet have dirhams.

A decent hat that protects the back of your neck essential. Moroccan straw hats are always available and look the part!

Suntan cream and lip salve/protection obviously useful - my bottom lip got badly burnt :-/

Tourist Bus

by sue_stone

One thing that really surprised me in Marrakech was the sight of one of those red, open-topped tourists buses that you see all over Europe! It looked so out of place in Marrakech - it was the most modern thing we saw.

But, if that is your thing, then you can catch the bus around some of the sights at the outskirts of the city, though you will still need to explore most of the Medina by foot as the bus won't fit down those streets!

A ticket costs around 130 dirham and lasts for 24 hours. Y can hop on and off as many times as you like, and there is commentary provided via headphones.

I have read that they stop running quite early in the day, so best to make the most of your ticket in the mornings. The easiest place to catch the bus is from Square de Foucauld, near the bottom of Djemma El Fna.

Fun with monkeys in Djamaa El Fna - Square

by Minstrelette

The atmosphere here is amazing. You can't go to Marrakesh without experiencing this square. Other VT members have written plenty about the things you will come across here, but there's a shortage on the monkeys (my favourite animal). For a little money, you can have your picture taken with one. I wish I could have spent more time with this friendly fellow, but it was time for him to move on to other paying customers.

Jewish Cemetery (MIaara)

by travelmad478

This one is slightly off the beaten path, but my friend Janet and I happened to be passing by this cemetery, so as Jews we decided it would only be right to pay a visit. The cemetery is a large expanse of tombs, all above ground, that hold the remains of what once was a pretty substantial Jewish population in the city. We poked around for about a half-hour, looking at the inscriptions and getting a spiel from one of the caretakers. (As for everything in Marrakesh, we were strongly encouraged to tip generously for this.)

These days, there are fewer Jews in Marrakesh, but enough that a section of the medina is still called the Jewish quarter.

Marrakesh - pink city in pink desert

by vodolaz

I remember Marrakesh like a city with houses only pink-colored and motley east bazaar ( market ) with snake-charmers and pushing pilferers and money cadgers.
So pity , my friend keeps photos now , however it can be , it coming soon...
