RE: RE: Female guide
Hi, I've not come across a female guide in Marrakesh, but Your hotel reception might be able to help you, or one of the female hotel staff might volunteer to show you around.
I hired a male guide for a morning (recommended and arranged by my hotel) and he was fine- polite, knowledgeable and informative. I am in my mid 40's and travelled alone.
Please contact me if you have any further questions.
Have A Great time!
RE: RE: Female guide
also, which is reassuring, guides must be official guides, they have to be registered or its illegal to guide you and there are too many police around and incognito tourist police around to run the risk of being caught and getting a 3 month jail term.
as suvanki points out make your enquiry to your hotel or the tourist office and see what they are able to come up for you.
Travel Tips for Marrakesh
Women vs. Clothing
Ladies: avoid using revealing clothes. You will only get stared at, cursed, made fun of, or even chased.
I was chased by an old lady holding a piece of concrete slab. I was wearing a long skirt, a sleeveless shirt, and a light jacket on top. It was so hot, I took off the jacket for awhile. All of the sudden, I heard this woman yelling at me in arabic. I turned around, and she was coming towards me, raising her hand which had a piece of concrete slab on it. I didn't try to make sense of it, I just ran. Didn't think she was going to have a chat and reason with me... Needless to say, I put my jacket back on...
Flights to Marrakech
Have a look at Royal Air Morac and it's budget airline Blue Atlas. You can get some good deals from London. I have used them on my last 3 trips during christmas times in the last few years and have not been disapointed so far.
My last return flight was Tangier via Casablanca for £109. but have seen prices for much less one way to Marrakech like £40. keep looking they will be some bargins during the year.
Djemaa el Fna
El Djemaa el Fna means the Assembly of the Dead, in Arabic. but, it is a square which is full of life. It has hundreds of food stalls, fresh orange juice sellers, acrobats, musicians, transvestite dancers, fortune tellers, snake charmers, henna painters, story tellers and traditional medicine vendors, as well, of course, as lots of tourists. You will find little circles of local men gathered around the various performers. If you join one of these circles and take a photo or even catch the eye of the performer, he will ask you for money.
This was a display of ancient Moroccan rug designs. The rugs are often used as carpets but are also hung from walls to act as insulators - and they look nice too!
The museum holds temporary exhibitions covering contemporary art (photos, paintings, sculptures etc) - which are displayed in the hammam! - and "heritage exhibitions" of Moroccan history. It also hosts concerts, theatre shows, films, dancing and lots of other cultural events.
City of 1001 Nights
"- 997 nights left!"
I have been to Morocco twice: once in 1986 and then 20 years later! Both times I was fascinated by this country, which was so close and yet so far!
The first time we went to Marrakesh at the end of a 3 week round trip and we only stayed in Marrakesh for a day or so. I guess I was so saturated with all those fabulous impressions that I just could not take in any more.
In 2006 it was different: I wanted to take my husband to experience this city of 1001 nights - even if we only spent 4 nights there! It was a totally different experience and we enjoyed every minute of it!
The liveliness, the architecture, the smells and all those fantastic details made the visit to the Pink city a memorable one!
Do enjoy the tips and pictures - and if you got a chance:
go visit Marrakesh yourself!
