    Marrakesh Transportation

    At first glance the hop-on hop-off bus service in Marrakech might seem the ideal way of introducing yourself to the city. Unfortunately Marrakech is a bit different to most cities. Much of what is interesting in Marrakech lies inside the ancient walls of the Medina, and there's not much of that part of the city that a bus can visit. For the Medina...

    Marrakesh Transportation

    If there's anything that annoys tourists in Marrakech, it's the taxi driver. If you read about the city you'll be sure they are the scourge of the city. They have meters, but they never use them. They'll happily charge tourists ten times the going rate, and more. They can be rude, crazy and downright dangerous in traffic. But they are cheap, and...

    Casablanca Transportation

    On Saturday evening I had to go from the Airport to the City. As I did not want to wait for the next train, I took a taxi The fare to my hotel was 250 Dirham. I thought thats too expensive, I think some guidlines at the airport stated 200 Dirham. But the driver refused to drive for this money. He fist wanted 300, my offer was 250. When we arrived...

    Mohammed V Airport is the largest airport in Morocco and very crowded and noisy, with signs only in Arabic and French. It's located about 30km south of Casablanca, so if your accommodation provided free transport to/from the airport, then its a good idea to use it! Getting to/from Casablanca:- Car - there is short and long term parking, numerous...

    We arrived in Casablanca on a cruise ship. The port is huuuuge and divided into 3 terminals. Our guide explained us how the port worked and how it was divided, but I didn't take note of everything he said and all I can remember now, as I write, is that there is a terminal for cereals and another for minerals. Casablanca's port is not only the main...

    Marrakesh Transportation

    This was my favourite form of transport in Marrakech. It's not meant to be used as a taxi - they are slower and more expensive than taxis, but I ended up using them for short journeys because they are wonderful. After the chaos and commotion of Marrakech, stepping into a caleche is like entering a bubble. All of a sudden the world slows down, even...

The airport is also really close to the city, making it very convenient. You can...

    We saw quite a few locals on bicycles, but with the traffic going on in Marrakesh it did not seem like a good idea for us. Interesting enough, there was a "rent-a-bicycle" area right across the street from our hotel, so it seems as if this is not unusual at all. It was just our personal decision not to rent a bike!
