Hi,

Was just wondering if anyone knows anything about this Riad. In particular about its location. Of course, any other info would be useful.

Thanks

Thanks for that. I had actuallyn seen that before. I was hoping that there may be some people who have actually stayed there. Cheeres, Pete

Thanks for that Kerst. Being in a good position was important for us. I like being amongst where it is all happening even if there are down sides like noise. Even the mosque won't bother us too much. We have experienced it before in other countries. In a strange sort of way it all adds the 'experience' of it all.

I read your travel page. Must have a mint tea in that Cafe and also visit that herb place, if we can find it. Looks very intriguing!

Any tips to offer on 'haggling'?

That is obviously an opinion. What would be helpful is if you could explain why you came to that decision. Thanks

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Essaouira

by suvanki

Formerly known as Mogador, this fishing port town is well worth a visit.

About 3 to 4 hours from Marrakesh, your journey takes you past Argan trees, (You might even spot a goat climbing the tree to reach the nuts that are used to obtain the Argan oil) and Thuya trees that are unique to this area.

The fishing port , narrow winding streets and alleyways of the souks, medina and mellah attract artists and photographers.

Each year Essaouira hosts a Gnaoua music festival, with performers ranging from local artistes to International singers and musicians appearing.

This charming town also has featured in many films, with the ramparts famously providing the opening scenes to Orson Welles' Othello, and more recently in Alexander.

Please visit my Essaouira page for more info

authentic, delicious Morroccan food

by bdines about Le Tobsil

One of the publications we were using for our trip was a story from the NY Times titled "36 hours in Marrakech," which suggested eating at an authentic Moroccan restaurant that was a little expensive (by Moroccan standards) and a little off the beaten path. We had agreed to meet some folks there, friends of ours who were also in Marrakech, but Bethany ended up eating alone at a large table after I had to apologize to the owner that our friends hadn't shown up. Bethany and I agreed it was one of the best meals we'd ever eaten: five courses starting with a variety of delicious Moroccan salads, then roasted chicken (tajine) and roasted lamb with vegetables and couscous. That was followed by two desserts. Dinner was 1200 dirham for the two of us, about 110 Euro, but it was well worth it. That meal was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. It's whatever they're serving that evening ... awesome. An meal and an experience.

Nice Palace but needs restoration

by AnthonyMason

This palace is quite close to the Jemma el Fna square. It has some amazing decorations inside, on the floors, walls and ceilings. Some of the tiling done in the palace looks really nice. There are plenty of places inside that provide a nice shade in the summers heat.

The palace looks nice but it is in desperate need of restoration and if this was done it would look a million times better.

There was an entrance fee of 10 dirhams.

Okay, you can't leave...

by hajin

Okay, you can't leave Marrakesh without shopping in the souks...there's a souk for for everything. Metals, jewelry, ceramics, spices, etc. The Marrakesh souks are easier for tourists to shop in, it seems and the prices seemed lower than the prices in Fes. This is mostly due to the fact that Fes is THE place for handicrafts and the items you'll find there are absolutely exquisite.
If you're not willing to bargain, prepared to get get 'ripped off' although in terms of getting ripped off, it seemed I was losing a dollar here, fifty cents there, etc. But, even if you are uncomfortable, it's the way of doing business and as long as you remember it's in good fun and you probably really could afford the three dollars you're bickering about, you'll do fine.

Andreaska's new Marrakesh Page

by Andreaska

This sure has been one of the strangest weeks in my life; In Fez I had met an Argentinian, Pablo, who had already spent a month in Morocco, waiting for a friend from Barcelona to do a documentary about Marrakesh with him. We came to the town by bus early in the morning and were quite disappointed when the taxi had brought us to Djmaa el Fna, the central square, which is no more than a big open space surrounded by low barrack-like buildings; having heard about the magical charm of this city I wondered what the talk was all about; I should find out soon. It's really worth spending a whole afternoon on one of the terrace-cafes overlooking the Djmaa el Fna. Till 5 o'clock or so not much is going on except for the orange-juice vendors, who put up their stalls already before noon. They are kind of funny. Try to walk along the line of stalls at a distance of about 4 to 5 metres; you will find that whenever you get too close to those guys they start making strange sounds to arouse your attention and get you to buy one of their - admittedly highly refreshing - orange-drinks. There seems to be a clearly defined frontier that you shouldn't cross if you are not too thirsty. Apart from this funny game there is not much to do at the Djmaa el Fna during the day. At night however you wouldn't recognize this square: acrobats, snake charmers, fakirs, folk-bands, numerologists and all kinds of other strange spectacles draw an unbelievable crowd to the centre of Marrakesh and it's mostly people from Morocco who gather around in circles of 50 or 60 to watch whatever there is to be seen.
