Now, I think this was the name of the restaurant, but I could be wrong - if anyone recognises the place from the picture, please feel free to correct me! This restaurant on the outskirts of Agdz appeared to be geared up for tour groups. We were shepherded up a flight of stairs, where round tables were laid out for 6 people. Pleasant decor, tiled...more
You seat under the tent and team with Isamail Youssfi are preparing tajine, which is soo good, that you can't stop eating.

They had very good aromatic herbs and they add good goat...more

Agdz is a stopping poin for many of the buses coming from bigger cities like oarzazate or zagora. This is also a minor administrative centre for the region so expect some rush hours, specially on big suq day or in normal city suq day 3 times a week.On the city centre you can get a taxi and head to ouarzazate or zagora. you can easly share one with...more
Agadz is a stop for major bus and taxi journeys coming either from Ouarzazate going south or coming from Zagora. Probably the best way to get a gran taxi and share some costs with local people is to go to the suq day and try to make some business. This big market complex is located a few kms out of the city direction of zagora.more
This is the suq of the city. where everytone buys their stuff. Here you usually can find cheaper things than in the shops around the town. This place is located right on the centre of the city and serves everyone. all you can imagine, from clothes to fruit vegetables, goat heads, scarves and juice, you name it. discuss the price before you buy...more
As thsi city is a major stopping point for many buses and grand taxis in the region, shops tend to grow in numbers. You can find good regional artifacts on these local shops. I think prices will go down right after the buses disapear. So dont buy anything while buses are stopping.more
This is a big regional suq in Agdz. As Agdz is a main regoinal administrative centre, it has a suq inside town and another one outside that serves all the region. Once a month you have a huge concentration of people coming all over the mountains to sell their goods and animals. Big confusion. almost everything. deal the price.more
AGdz road sign coming from Zagora. As I was not feeling very ok coming fro Zagora, I had this synosites crises and had to give the car wheel to my girlfriend, i remeber that somehow this little road sign got my attention and i liked what I saw next. The city was quite developed and looked very inteeresting and working to be clean and touristy...more
Again animal as local costums. Goats are used to give milk and meat. They are a very important animal due to its meat and all the big suqs sell them along with sheeps. You should visit a animal market in Morocco. I dont quite like the idea of animals being sold, but in terms of experiencing something new, go and watch people.more
Try to comunicate with Morocan people. In the center of towns are usually merchants you meet, hwo will allways offer to you something to buy or to use some turist activity. But when you clear up what you want , you can allways find behinde merchant a person hwo want comunication more than only made you by something. So easilly you end in family house, where the atmosphere is very special and you can learn so many new things, different so much to our way. More you are bloced and suspisious, more you thing they are traying to cheat you and you will end like this. You will miss many beautifull moments and you will feel place just thrue the eyes of an tourist. On their souks is a mess, similar to our advertising on TV, post - boxes and other way to made us buy articles. Here is direct, human to human. So, just relax while you are buying and choose the eyes, soul you like and enjoy your merchant qualitys in you. For shur you will make good deal this way.
Unique Suggestions: Avoid showing hashish around if you smoke.Is legal for tourist to smoke, but if they find you hashish they will boder you where you got it. You can allways say you got it just somewhere on the street, but keep hashish in your pocket after you use it. To avoid boring conversation with such authoritys.

Favorite thing: This is a very nice region, as you go out (or in depends from where you are coming) of the Draa Valey, this landscapes tend to change in a very beautiful way. Either you're coming from the south and the Draa Valley into Zagora is just amazing or if you're coming from Ouarzazate the Jbel Sahro is also delicious...
