btw, where is the dyer's district?

do I need bus or I can cover the sight just by walking?

Thanks

Re: 3days in Marrakech, what to see

by cachaseiro

you can walk there and you should also try to stay in a place near there.
i stayed at a riad caled johenna when i was there.
it's fairly cheap and very nice, but you can find cheaper places if you are on a budget.
i noticed a hotel called "ali" that seemed to attract a lot of backpackers, so i guess that is cheap.
that place is right next to djamaa el fnaa, just like "riad johenna" is.

There is a lot of information on VT pages; enter "Marrakesh" in the Destinations field.

For a day trip, you could go to the Ourika valley.
Also, Essaouira is worth a day and over-night visit.

Re: 3days in Marrakech, what to see

by vtveen

I would recommend visiting Marrakech itself for two days. The other day visit the Atlas Mountains, either to Telouet with an interesting kasbah/palace or to the Tizi-n-Test Pass with a visit to the Tin Mal Mosque, one of the few mosques in Moroco where non-muslims are allowed to take a look inside. (If visiting on a Saturday there is also a souk in the Berber village of Asni)

Marrakech - the old city/medina - you can do all the sightseeing on foot. Just get a map. If travelling outside the city you can take a car with driver or a rental car (we had both) or I suppose a guided tour.

See for tips/pics my Marrakech page: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/7c27b/20372e/

Happy travels

There are so many good pages written by Vters to cover this sort of question - would recommmend you have a read around yourself and then any further questions or elaboration required then ask away here in the forums.

I would say a couple of days in Marrakech and a day and a night in Essaouira with a little trip down to Diabat where Jimi Hendrix was.

or a day and a night in Telouet - the route there and back is just stunning and you really get to see 'Morocco' in that route. You could push it and catch an afternoon bus or even better a grande taxi (whichd be to the Telouet turn off along the TiznTichka road to Ouarzazate and then wait for another grande taxi going into Telouet or hitching) and then theres an early/7am bus back to Marrakech. or rent a car and go.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

go shopping for Moroccan rugs...

by Krystynn

go shopping for Moroccan rugs here at Djema el-Fna Square.

Don't worry... This place is always open. Any time of day is the right time to go. Of course, if you're heading this way at night, do be extra careful. The bustling Djema el-Fna Square has always been the heart of life here in Marrakech.

Psss, don't forget to BARGAIN when you're buying one of these Moroccan rugs! In fact, don't forget to BARGAIN when buying anything here.... :-)

Spices

by johnsakura about Spices

You can buy all kinds of spices you can think of. just name it ans buy them on the large amount of shops selling these kinds of products. dont buy for the first price. try to negociate. ask for a special price.

Great Food, Service, Restrooms& No-Smoking Indoors

by mlmimouna about McDonald's--Center of Town by Main Post Office

by Mary Mimouna, Marrakech Restaurant Reviewer
Reviewed July 17, 2006

No longer do tourists have to wonder where they can get delicious and safe food at reasonable prices, in an air-conditioned, non-smoking, child-friendly atmosphere! Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, McDonald's is open from 9 AM to Midnight, Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, it is open from 9 AM to 1 AM. While American egg breakfasts are not available, muffins, orange juice, and coffee are served.

Food safety is one of the issues foreign tourists are concerned with in Marrakesh. McDonald's is a safe place to have salads while traveling. McDonald's lettuce and other salad items arrive already pre-washed in a large plastic. Excellent procedures require employees to put on gloves before touching and preparing salad greens into the serving containers. Also, it is very interesting where McDonald's food is coming from in Morocco. According to the manager, the beef is coming from Argentina, while the fish filets and chicken are coming from France. The buns are manufactures in Casablanca under the supervision of a French factory, while the fries are imported from Egypt, already pre-cut and frozen! Canned tuna and canned corn come from Morocco, as well as all the fresh vegetables. The milk used in coffee is not merely pasturized, but sterilized (Salim brand).

Tourists need not worry that McDonald's food in Morocco will taste any different than it does in America. It is identical (even the ketchup and salad dressings), except for certain menu items which are not offered in Morocco (such as egg options for breakfast).

A a children's play room is upstairs. High-chairs are available (ask for "chaise-bébé" in French). Changing table inside handicapped restroom stall.

WHEELCHAIR ACCESSABILITY Completely handicap-accessible with a front ramp into the restaurant, wide doors, and a proper handicap bathroom for wheelchairs. WHAT WE LIKE Happy Meals (27 DH) and Chicken McNuggets--available in boxes of 4, 6, 9, or 20 (for 16, 26, 34, and 75 DH respectively) are always favorites with children. My personal favorites are Filet of Fish (26 DH), Big Mac (29 DH), and Vanilla Shake (13 DH). For a Middle Eastern flavor, try the McArabia Sandwich--made in pita bread, with two spiced beef patties, lettuce and tomato.

THE BILL Least expensive items are Hamburger 11 DH ($1.20), Small Fries 8 DH ($ .90), and a Small Soda 8 DH ($ .90). Happy Meals (toy, small sandwich, small fries, and small drink) are 27 DH ($3.00). Big Mac or Double Cheeseburger Menu Meal, with Large Fries, and Large Drink (or Large Milkshake) is 44 DH ($4.80).

THE CROWD Tourists, locals, families, singles, retired, adults, children, and teenagers. Packed at mealtimes, but counter service is quick and efficient.

IF YOU GO If you don't like crowds, try to avoid peak meal times, when you might find all the indoor tables filled (or go upstairs). While milk is not on the menu, anyone desiring a glass of milk CAN ask for it, and they will pour it into a cup for you.

THE SPACE Two floors. Indoor spaces air-conditioned. Upstairs, an indoor eating space, with excellent view of children's play room (non-smoking). Outdoor balcony area upstairs, overlooking Boulevard Mohamed V (smoking). Downstairs, indoor area with service counter boasts two large-screened TV's (kept at low volume) and a large Ronald McDonald statue. The space is decorated using sand-colored walls and floors, with one darker brick wall. Tables, counters, and wall designs accent the room in a sky blue. Large windows let in plenty of light. Relaxed booths line the front windows, while sturdy chairs at tables have comfortable mahogany backs and seats, and attractive rounded legs made of stainless steel. While the indoor area is non-smoking, the outdoor area is covered from the sun with attractive awnings, and has comfortable chairs, tables, and picnic tables.

Medina

by grets

This medina is much more ‘genuine’ than the one we saw in Tunisia, and not so touristy. There are all sorts of things for sale, but especially lots of wonderful leather. Some alleys are wide and open and some are narrow and rather enclosed.

Gueliz -' The French Quarter'

by suvanki

Gueliz, is part of the 'ville nouvelle' - New Town of Marrakech - also known as The French Quarter, as the city expanded beyond the city walls in the 19th century, when it was under French control.

Long straight Boulevards radiate from roundabouts, where fountains provide an attractive diversion, and pavement cafes are evident.
Ave Mohammed V runs from the Koutoubia Mosque, through Gueliz, passing through the Place de la Liberte and Place du 16 Novembre.
Gueliz is the location for many mid range and luxury hotels, night clubs, cinemas, offices and shops.

My hotel was in this area, and I enjoyed wandering around, window shopping (there are some great shops selling contemporary clothing and shoes/bags etc) and sitting at one of the pavement cafes with a coffee, people watching. There's also a cinema which is probably the smartest in Marrakesh.
