Morocco Hostels




Morocco Comments

Going to Marrakech is like changing dimensions, in the evening look for a tallish hotel overlooking the marketplace, entry to the roof is a dollar or two and to sip a beverage, watch the sunset and the smoke and smells of the evening meal is magical. Once you try the market by your lonesome you will hire a guide the next day! They know the maze, cost a little and protect you from the leeching street merchants who will hang a trinket from your shirt pocket and say you bought it. Hire the guide. I used a pair of headphones from the airplane to get privacy and while the average Moroccan is versed in 5 languages, they don't know "sprechen sie deutch?"... the general motto in shopping is: "if you look at it you bought it" or owe them something so you learn to look sideways or ahead but don't wear dark glasses, cause then they will assume you ARE looking :-) I should of bought a dasheeke day 1, to blend in more. My friends and I had a great time visiting the architectural sites…
When I got off the ferry, a kind gentleman greeted me and asked if I wanted a tour and said he was from the office of travel. I said, "cool!" And cool it was. He took me all over the city on a walking tour. He knew every single thing about that beautiful city. I loved Tangier and the olive oil and the lunches -- and the party on the beach until 5 a.m. I would recommend Tangier to travelers.
I visited Marrakech many times and everytime I go there it's a different experience. I found it to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Fes is a great city. Traditional Moroccan goods, pottery, and leather in particular are great there.
I visited Marrakech and it was a great place to visit. Well recommended. Try the tajin -- it's lovely, and prepare to haggle! All I can say is that Marrakech is worth a look.
Fes was cute.
