Casablanca <> Marakesch by train

by ran1

Where can I get the train schedule for travel Casablanca-Marrakesch-Marrakesch? Do the trains run on time? Where can I buy ticket online in advance? Is the train jopurney good or would you recommend taking a flight?

Details for train schedules in Morocco can be found here http://www.oncf.ma/index_en.aspx
Trains take 3hrs 10 minutes, and leave every 2 hours. No need to book in advance.There are 2 train stations in Cassablanca unless you are going to the port you should use Cassa Voyagers for onward journeys.
I would not recommend you fly as it will take 2 hours to get to Cassa airport in traffic.

Agree with WindCity take the train much quicker and no hassle with airlines.

I have not taken the train from Casablanca to Marrakech have taken one from Oujda to Taza and went 1st class and it was very comfortable and very cheap. I brought the ticket the night before in Oudja train station and did not even have to line up. but Oudja is a quite town compared with Casablanca.

So yes defiantly take the train to Marakech.

Just an FYI, sometimes the trains can be delayed. We took a train from Rabat to Meknes last year in September and it took 4 hours. Train broke down. Eventually they got it fixed. And it broke down about 1/2 way so it was too far to walk and we didn't know where to go to catch a grand-taxi in the middle of nowhere. If you're taking the train to someplace where you have to be there by a certain time - leave early just in case.
From what the locals said on the train it doesn't happen very often. We were meeting our hostess from Moulay Idriss in Meknes and luckily she waited for us.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

The Red City

by barryg23

One of the things which distinguishes Marrakech from other cities in Morocco, and also one of my favourite things about the city, is the vivid red/pink colour of so many of the buildings. As you travel south by train the colour of the landscape changes from green to red and you can feel like you are entering a distinctly different part of the country.

TOMBOUCTOU 52 JOURS...

by SirRichard

TOMBOUCTOU 52 JOURS (Zagora)
This world famous sign showing the way to Tombouctou (Mali) through the Sahara Desert in 52 days by camel is still there, though it needs to be repainted urgently!
It's in the main street, in the centre of the town, by a huge new municipal building. If you don't find it, ask, everybody knows it.

Seafood pastilla - a must-try at Cafe Argana

by BlueLlama about Cafe Argana

Cafe Argana is one of the Djemaa el Fna institutions, a multi-tiered restaurant that packs customers in in the evenings. It seems to attract more of an even mix of Moroccans and foreigners than the other places in the square and there were plenty of families and big parties on the night we visited, giving Argana a more festive atmosphere than those that are more popular with couples.

It must be partly down to the sheer size of the restaurant, as the decor is not the most plush on Djemaa el Fna, with simple tables and plastic garden chairs. Service is brusque too, and we were barked at for trying to order a meal on the wrong balcony...

Food was the usual Moroccan staples (tagines, couscous, you'll have the choice imprinted on your memory after a trip to any similar place) but for... seafood pastilla. Finally. I'd heard about this dish, but had up until Argana only seen the chicken or pigeon version. I was very keen to try a pastilla (or bisteeya/b'steeya), having a love of all things pie-like, but not eating meat... The rest of the food was quite ordinary but the pastilla made the Argana more than worthwhile. Seafood pastilla - even better than I'd hoped. Pastry that was crisp and flaky on top, soft and buttery further in: delicious. They didn't skimp on the filling, an interesting mix of vermicelli and shellfish including prawn and squid. Quite simply, the best thing I ate in Morocco.

Ben Youssef Madrassa

by yoshimi

This Muslim theological school was the biggest of Morocco and was built by sultan Abdellah Al Ghali Construction work ended in 1564. Today, it’s not used anymore as a school and non-Muslim visitors are allowed. This school is a good example of 16th century Islamic architecture (wood from Morocco, marble from Italy; stucco…) and has been restored in 1999.
Inside the Madrassa, toilets are free and clean….
Price: 20 Dh/pers (US$2)
Open daily, 9am – 6pm

Mouassine Fountain

by sue_stone

The Medina used to be home to 80 fountains, and the most important of these that still remains is the Mouassine fountain. The fountains were very important to each neighbourhood, as a source of water for bathing, cooking and so on.

The Mouassine fountain was built in 1570, and is a classic example of the fountains built in those days. It has an attractive, carved wood detailed canopy over one section of the fountain, which is for human use. The other two sections, with arched entrances, are for thirsty animals.

The fountain isn't in the greatest state these days and didn't really look like it is currently in use.
