Traveling alone in Marrakech

by eyeslookingeast

I am a woman in my 40s that wants to spend some time in Marrakech, my family is worried about me traveling alone to Africa. My question is, how safe is it for me to travel alone to that area. Another question is the manner in which I should dress. Does anyone speak english in Marrakech? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Heather

if you have a read through previous posts you will find lots of good answers to this asked many times already. plus you will pick up some more helpful hints. the best advice really is to be prepared.
The question - does anyone speak english in Marrakech - shows that you probably have only just started out on your idea to travel to Morocco, so a bit more reading - and the Lonely Planet guide book or the Rough guide are excellent guidebooks for loads of helpful info.

RE: Traveling alone in Marrakech

People in Marrakech speak French and Arabic, and sometimes some English or Spanish. You'll be perfectly safe, but should dress modestly (especially now, during Ramadan), and be prepared for a LOT of hassle (self-appointed guides who won't go away) in the souks. Even so, enjoy!

No danger at all; Marrakesh is Morocco's most touristed city.

The only thing you really need to watch out for are all the potential suitors you'll come across who will do anything for a ticket out of the country.

RE: Traveling alone in Marrakech

Dear Heather,
I've been to Morocco last year for New Years Eve.
I was in a group of 14 people, but we were quite indipendent and a couple of girls went away on their own for a couple of days.
My impression is that it's a safe place to travel alone, but you have to be very careful where you sleep (my advise is to book in advance and choose a nice hotel, they're not expensive anyway). Another good idea would be to hire a guide (they're very cheap, you can find an english speaking one for 20 $ per day), he would tell you where to go and what to avoid.
A part from guides, english is nowhere spoken (french and arab or some spanish, but not english).
Keep an eye on your belongings!!!
And have a nice trip, Morocco is wonderful and Marrakesh is very colourful!!!

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Tanners

by gmg61

Just outside the souk, close to the city walls and the Bab Debbagh (Tanneries Gate), you'll find the tanners district, where leathers are still tanned with vegetal proceeding. The floor is covered by big holes used ad dying and tanning thubs and all around the smell is unbearable. It's like going back to pre-industrial era!

The kids around who offers themselves as guides (and later will desperately try to bring you to one of the leather shops nearby) offer you some mint leaves. Use them to cover your face and absorb part of the terrific smell.

Try to ask about the myths about tanners, who are said to be in contact with unseen world of the dead and considered to be masters of fertility!

Great View on Djemaa-Al-Fnaa square !

by MichaelFalk1969 about Cafe Glacier

The Cafe is located next to Djemaa-Al-Fna square, opposite the Souk entrance. The roof terrace gives superb views on the Djemaa al Fnaa square as the evening spectacles unfold. Consummation is obligatory, but they don`t mind if you just sip a mint tea, take some photos, and then leave. The food is OK and really cheap (a filling chicken coscous for just 50 Dirham), but the service is lousy and orders can take some time. The waiters rather chat amongst themselves than take orders. Chicken Couscous

Just sit down on the terrace...

by Andreaska

Just sit down on the terrace of one of the caf├ęs overlooking the Djmaa el Fna, the central square of Marrakesh, in the late afternoon; this is the craziest city I know and the Djmaa el Fna is the centre of this craziness.
There is always something going on at the Djmaa el Fna. Also I highly recommend to try and go for dinner at the square, where you can choose from about 100 stalls, and they have quite everything: couscous, tajine, pastilla, snails, small snacks ...

Saadian tombs

by mafi_moya

The Saadians were an Arabian dynasty that ruled much of southern Morocco in the 16th and 17th centuries, often successfully waging war against Portuguese invaders. Marrakech was their capital.

Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour created these tombs for himself, his family and ancestors. In total nearly 200 Saadians are buried here, most in the yard and the most important in the lavishly decorated halls. The tombs were sealed and only rediscovered in 1917 so their original splendour is still intact and the intricate detail is pretty breathtaking.

I toured this country with my buddy Damon who I met in Lagos Portugal. We stowed our luggage at the port in Spain, hopped on a boat, and travelled for 10 days. Next, we rode the train to "Marrakesh Express". The fresh escargot in the night markets was fantastic. We also went to the extremelly photogenic town of Esouria on the Atlantic coast. This was where Jimi Hendrix penned the song "Castles in the Sand", which is pictured above. Then, we travelled to the city of Fez. We never used a guide, and we never managed to get lost. Along the way, we did a day trip to some Roman ruins. I truely felt at peace among the ruins. Morocco is fairly cheap, so I came home with some inexpensive souveniers for my friends and family.
