Royal Air Maroc

by Jenll88

Hi, does anyone have the latest news on the pilot strike at Royal Air Maroc? haven't been able to get latest news online if strike has been resolved. will appreciate if someone can give me an update or send me a link to the latest news report? Am travelling to Morrocco in Dec and was thinking of booking a ticket in advance online for the Casablanca to Marrakech route (cos much faster than train and easier as I have suitcase to lug around) But now am anxious as been reading a lot of bad things about the airline that is is unreliable and subject to frequent last minute changes. appreciate any views you might have to share. just wish there is another airline that flies from Casa to Marrakech!

Re: Royal Air Maroc

Thanks! My hotel in Marrakech just emailed to tell me that the strike has ended. But then again, seeing how unreliable RAM is based on all the horror travel tales, I can't be sure it is true . Been told of lost luggage by RAM etc. Sigh, real headache.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

The town square at night

by Cool-123

The square is totally different from the day time. There are lots of food stalls and you only have to find a seat and order your food. You can try various kind of moroccan food. I think you will enjoy your dinner here.

Things you can buy in the square

by deeper_blue about Various

While I was in Marrakech I bought two mini treasure chests made of camel bone, a berber robe, a Japanese football shirt and sunglasses. There's a large variety of things to buy, Incense, bracelets, chains. Again you can barter with the price of everything, ironically enough I found the best way of bartering is browsing without wanting to buy, then when they offer you a price I said I had very little money. It may sound a little mean on my part but the traders are more than happy to rip you off, and if they don't want to accept your price then they are entitled to say no.

Just like home....

by li-anne about Mc Donalds Marrakech

Only because we promised our kids to go to this Mc Donalds restaurant, was the real reason of our visit. We came from Majorelle gardens and walked all the way to this restaurant. It was a long walk and it was hot!
The restaurant was crowded and we could hardly get a free chair.
But oh well...the food tasted just the same as in any Mc Donalds restaurant all over the world. Nothing special at all! But it's a safe place to give your kids an icecream far away from home.

Streets of Marrakesh

by travelmad478

It's easy to get a little lost on the streets of Marrakesh, since signs in English or French are few and far between. But don't worry: the city's not big enough to get too lost, and while you're wandering you'll see so many fascinating sights and interesting people that you won't have time to get nervous.

Enjoy the artistry of the beautiful Palais Bahia

by angiebabe

Palais Bahia translates as Palace of the Favourite.

Built in two stages or parts at the end of the 19th century by two powerful grand viziers - the older part built by Si Moussa, the vizier of Sultan Sidi Mohammed ben Abderrahman, and the newer part of the two built by Si Moussa's son, Ba Ahmed, vizier of Moulay Abdelaziz.

The older part contains apartments around a marble-paved courtyard and an open courtyard with cypress and orange trees and jasmine, with 2 star shaped pools.

The newer part is a huge palace complex containing luxurious apartments looking onto courtyards planted with trees. The best craftsmen in the kingdom were apparently hired to build and decorate this palace and it is decorated with prized materials such as marble from Meknes, cedar from the Middle Atlas and tiles from Tetouan.

The main courtyard, once used by the vizier's concubines, is paved with marble and zellij tilework, with 3 fountains and surrounded by a gallery of finely fluted columns. This courtyard faces the main reception room with a cedar ceiling painted with arabesque.

I have visited the Bahia on two occasions - the first was quite rushed and I always after wanted to come back for a better look! When I finally returned last year I needed about 1 and a half to 2 hours to adequately see and photograph this beautiful complex!

Entrance is still only 10 dirham - approximately 1 euro
Check if it definitely closes for a lunchbreak from about 1230 to 230 pm each day. Opens early before 9am and closes 6pm.
