hospitals in marrakesh

by monicarc

just wondering if marrakesh had hospitals and not just emergency clinics. I am planning on going there but am pregnant. Thanks!

Re: hospitals in marrakesh

by aranyos

It seems that the expat hospital is polyclinic du sud in Gueliz (the "new" section of Marrakech). I have not been able to find out more information, however.

I suggest that you contact the U.S. embassy.

Marrakesh has good hospitals for tourists, but make sure your travel insurance covers you for travel when pregnant as if there is a problem you will be expected to pay .
otherwise have a good trip and try and get out of Marrakesh to see the real morocco

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

M'HAMID
Here is where all the...

by SirRichard

M'HAMID
Here is where all the roads end, that's what they say. After this point, the Sahara begins, you can only go forward in 4x4 or camel!! There are nice landscapes, dunes endless seas... It's aprox 50 kms from Zagora, if you leave at 14:00 you can make an afternoon trip and come back before the sun sets (don't drive by night there!).

Stay and relax on your hotel's terrace

by johnsakura about Hotel's terrace

Every Hotel in Marrakesh has a terrace which will make your visit to the city worth it. Just sit down, relax read a book and order a mint tea. Another thing is that you can actually get to know travellers that are staying in the hotel.

Have lunch in a rooftopgarden!

by li-anne about Borj el Koutoubia

Hidden away in the busy Rue de Bab Agnaou, is this cafe-restaurant with a pleasant rooftop garden. Away from the husle and the busle of this living city you can enjoy a lunch or dinner here amidst the green.
They serve tajines, sanwiches, omelettes, hamburgers, pancakes, and pizza.
We discovered this restaurant only because someone was standing on the street with flyers of this restaurant. What I liked most here was the tranquility and the fresh lime juice. (jus de citron pressé) for 14 dirhams for a big glass.

Too bad I don't have any pictures of the rooftop restaurant itself, but believe me it's worth going there.
From the garden restaurant you can see the Bab Agnaou street, the Koutoubia mosk and the square.

Koutoubia

by Bigjones

This mosque is the higher one in Marrakesh (70m), you can't miss it ! It's even nicer during the night when the minaret is all lit up. Unfortunately, you can't enter it if you're not a Muslim but you can admire its simple but nice Hispano-Moorish architecture from the surrounding gardens smelling of roses.

The Tanneries

by suvanki

From articles I'd read and TV programmes that I'd seen about the tanneries I was well prepared for a nasal assault!

I'd hired a guide for the morning and had asked to go to the tanneries, as it was a place I'd seen on TV, and had read about, and thought it looked quite interesting.

Luckily it wasn't such a hot day, so the smell wasn't too bad.

Surrounding the tanneries ( A walled expanse of a rectangular yard) are small , dark ramshackle sheds, where young boys spend their day endlessly shearing at the skins with a blade to get a smooth finish, they're working by the light that enters through the crack in the door, sitting on the dirty floor.

In the centre of the tanneries are Concrete tubs, which are filled with water and a mixture of natural ingredients (animal urine, pigeon droppings etc!) to soften the skins, and to remove the fur from the pelts.

Scattered about are off-cast limbs of goats!

Elsewhere, men were wading thigh deep into the tubs, to press the skins. Some tubs contained dyes, so the workers legs appeared to be permanently dyed too- although some wore thigh length boots, they didn't appear to offer much protection.

To be honest, I found it to be quite a depressing and humbling place, I didn't dare ask how much the tanners were paid or what hours they worked.- I guess it was a minimal amount for maximum hours, and there were some very young looking boys working there.

Although I was the only tourist there at the time, this is a place that is often visited by tourists wanting to see a bit of Moroccan culture. I myself had mixed feelings after visiting.

I'll never buy any leather goods again, without remembering this experience!

Apparently the tanneries at Fez are larger, and feature on most of the postcards on sale around Morocco.
