going to the "new town"

Hello travellers!
I have to go from Djemma square to BLVD ZERKTOUNI, GUELIZ (Budget rent a car office).
Please could you tell me the cheapest way??

THANKS!

Re: going to the "new town"

I would get one of the small taxis : PETIT TAXI that are yellow and you see bobbing about everywhere. Not sure of the 'going rate' but maybe you can offer Dirhams 30 ? Haggle. (No meter)
Look at tips about transport for Marrakesh on VT. Like on : http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/7c27b/20372e/
and many others.
Or if you have some time, you can walk it. Exit the Djemma Square keeping the Koutoubia minaret on your left. Continue over into the new city across Place de la Liberte - keep walking up Avenue Mohamed V and you will reach Boulevard Mohammed Zerktouni. Maybe take 30 minutes stroll ?

30 Dirhams is far too much, Ask the driver to use his meter it will cost no more than 20Dh, probably less. If he wont use the meter, don't get in and just flag the next one. It works for me. You can certainly walk.
At the end of December you might experience rain...sorry!

I would also recommend using a 'petit taxi'. We paid indeed 30 dirhams (less than 3 euro's). We found one close to our riad in one of the alleys in the medina, which was very covenient with our luggage.

Get yourself a petit taxi. Confirm that the driver knows the address before driving off and insist on using the meter. If it "doesn't work" get out and take the next taxi.

hello :)

i do recommend a Petit Taxi as well and ask the driver to turn on the counter so that you can easily know how much to pay when you arrive or ask him about the price from the beginning, also confirm the address twice to be sure that the driver knows where to buy:).

peace & hugs

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Bicycles in the medina

by sachara

In the medina in the alley of Dar Si Said I saw these bicycles. I liked the scene with its colours.
I think biking is a good way of transportation in Marrakech, for visiting the Menara gardens and the Ville Nouvelle for example.
In many budget hotels in the medina it's possible to hire bikes. Our hotel in the Ville Nouvelle in 2000 didn't, so we walked a lot.
It was nice too.

Chech

by ptitetoile about Souks

Before going to the desert, don't forget your "chech"! It protects you from the sun but also from the cold, the wind and the sand!!! You can find them in every colors in a lot of souks. Blue is more the colors of the berber nomads... But I don't wear a lot of blue things, so I bought a red one and a green one !
Don't hesitate to ask the salesman to show you how to put it on the head... there a so many ways to do it! It should be around 20 DH.

Excellent food and view of the Jemaa-el-Fna

by Flying.Scotsman about Restaurant Chez Chegrouni

Restaurant Chez Chegrouni is another place with terraces overlooking the square. The food was excellent at budget prices. Our meal of lamb chops, for my wife, and beef kebabs for me, both with chips, rice, and olives, plus a yoghurt and a glass of sprite, came to 95 dirhams (about £8) for everything. The menu also included tajines , couscous, and a number of other Moroccan dishes. The waiter brings you a small piece of headed paper on which you write what you want from the menu, this then serves as your bill. The view of the square was maybe not quite as close as the Argana, but the food was a bit better we felt, and better priced.

The city wall...

by belgianchocolate


And there we went...The wide lanes of this parth
of the city are quit boring. The people you
meet here are dressed quit different , and
there is outward no difference between them
and the modern European.

Soon we arrived by the city walls. We decided to
enter the city at 'Bab Jdid'. Every of the 9 gates
have got a name. The walls have got that typical
red color that gives Marrakesh it's own character.
If you are the brave kind of persons that likes
long walks...19 km and your round the city.
(you can even choose to go left or right. ;-))
That is if you want to see every single one
of the 200 square towers.

Les Jardins Majorelle

by MM212

Created by the French artist Jacques Majorelle, an amateur botanist, the Villa Majorelle and its surrounding gardens became his home beginning in the early 1920's. Later in the 60's, the villa was purchased by none other than the designer Yves Saint-Laurent. The gardens have since been turned into a park containing rare subtropical trees and an amazing collection of cactus plants. The villa is now also a small museum of Islamic art. Jardins Majorelle are definitely worth a visit. Most striking are the colours of the villa itself - cobalt blue accented with amber yellow and celadon green - which offer a superb colourful photo opportunity.
