Rainy next week in Marrakesh

by samtin

We're in Marrakesh for five nights next week. The weather forecast is not looking so good - several days of cloud and rain showers. I am gutted as my main purpose in going was to see some sun and do some photography. Anyone got any ideas for things to do if it is wet, and just how muddy do the streets get? Not sure what footwear to take.

Thanks, Sam

The streets get very muddy and smelly when it rains. Take closed toe waterproof shoes, maybe wellington boots to keep clean and dry. Not sure what to do when it rains =( Its worth while going to Asni to take some photos, Sir Richard Brandson has a gorgeous mountain retreat there. There are some great views from there.

Ive not noticed muddy streets in Marrakech - its all tarseal everywhere but litter and dust - especially around the souk areas.
But Id get a rental car and head out of town still for a day or two - around Ourika and Ouikaimeden is very nice and yes to Asni and up to Imlil is beautiful - nice places to stay at Imlil and at Ouirgane and if you have the money for it, Richard Bransons kasbah of course.

Also a drive out to Telouet is lovely and great for an overnight trip - then go on a bit further to Ait Benhaddou - or stay the night there - and then back again.

I never really take notice of weather reports anyway - so I dont waste my time being gutted about any weather - half the time they are not correct - it might rain only off and on and get nice periods of sunshine still - but having a rental car does help with whatever weather - but dont drive further than Ouarzazate as when theres a lot of rains there are a number of roads along there that can become impassable as the roads in lowlying areas fill with water.

I love Morocco in any season and any weather - even a drive to Essaouira is nice. Its all about attitude and information I reckon.

All the best,

litter and dust I mean in these areas can become a bit messy I guess but Ive walked all around the souks to take photos even in wet weather and not got covered or seen mud. Take some good walking shoes and the latest fashionable wellingtons might not go astray....or they might, the Marrakchis might want them for themselves!

Lisa, Angie,

Thanks for the info. We have booked a riad so don't really want to go out of town at least not over night as it is our first time in the city itself but I have made a note of your recommendations for any future trips. Fingers crossed for some sun!

Re: Rainy next week in Marrakesh

This site only forecast one day of rain. I suppose it depends who's doing the forecasting!


Re: Rainy next week in Marrakesh

by angiebabe

Hi thanks, the suggestions Ive mentioned can also be done as day trips...but places all good for day trips such as Ourika, Ouikaimeden, Imlil, Telouet and Ait Benhaddou, Essaouira, Cascade DOuzoud, even Agadir or Taroudant now that the new freeway has taken 2-3 hours off a return trip!

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Saadian Tombs - Holy Tombs Of Sultans

by Mikebb

First discovered by a Frenchman during the 1920's this burial ground for Saadian Sultans had been hidden from foreigners. The Hall Of 12 Columns is a most beautiful building, having 3 central tombs surrounded by a dozen marble pillars. This building is considered one of the finest examples of Moroccan-Andalucian decorative art.

There are also gardens and other lesser buildings with various tombs and marble decoration.

The Saadian Tombs are located Rue de Kasbah, Bab Agnaou.

A visit to the Atlas Mountains

by DanielF

A visit to the Atlas Mountains is a must for the visitors who can afford a few spare days. Otherwise, if you visit the city in the Winter time, take a carriage ride around the city walls. The view of the snow covered mountains from the as background to the red-brick walls and the palm trees is unforgettable and one of the images that best sumps up the essence of Marrakesh.

Good food and a lot of fun on Djema El Fna

by Bigjones about Number 12, Djema El Fna (Adil & co)

Djema El Fna is the place to find very cheap and delicious meals in the evening in an inimitable atmosphere. That's amazing to see how they try to attract clients !! We chose the number 12 and had such a fun evening that we came back another day. Believe me, they serve the best fries (and I'm a expert !! ;-)
They also serve all kinds of meat, fish and vegetable. It's good and fresh (we were not sick afterwards ;-). Tea is generally for the "house". For 25 Dh (2,5 USD), you can already eat a lot !

Koutoubia Tower

by grets

The name Koutoubia is a corruption of kutub, the Arabic root of words meaning "to write" or "books". The reason this is applied to the mosque, is because early descriptions tell of it being in the centre of a medina full of one hundred bookstores.

The start of the contruction dates from year 1147, but it was not completed until 1158. The tower (minaret) is 230 feet high and 42 feet square, and is quite a landmark in the town. At the time we visited it was the tallest building in the city - I am not sure whether that is still the case.

The tower has inner and outer walls with a ramp running up inbetween them, and it contains six vaulted chambers, one above the other.

From Ouarzazate...

by SirRichard

From Ouarzazate to Zagora goes this nice valley full of Palm trees. The road is fully paved, though a bit narrow.
The first hour from Ouarzazate (till Agdz) is a bit monotonous, dry landscape, and almost no traffic. After Agdz you enter the palm woods, and there are more little towns on the way.
