Ok - not as good as elsewhere

Hmm not the best medina - very small - same stuff on offer as elsewhere in Morocca with a fraction of the choice. It appears to be more of a working market for Morrocans who need... read more

Hmm not the best medina - very small - same stuff on offer as elsewhere in Morocca with a fraction of the choice. It appears to be more of a working market for Morrocans who need it rather than tourist trap, but with some touristy bits there. Only need an hour or so to get through it - although we... More

This shopping/tourist area is the real Morocco and it is a must do. Even snobbish tourists should overcome the same same knockoffs, pushy loud vendors but whom are not obnoxious are everywhere so get in the mood and close off your brain, learn to say No firmly with a smile and it works. Lots of tempting items for sale and... More

We walked around and was able to take some amazing photographs of the different business and local homes. There is a lot of things to buy, but I was surprised to find a lot knock off stuff (LV, YSL, Gucci, etc.). It is definitely lovely to experience it, but try to do it before it gets dark.

Nice place. But far away from the beaty of other moroccan medinas. Visit it and then go to the Hassam II Mosque.

Locals helpful without being too pushy. A lot to see as you ramble around and very easy to get lost. Recommend using GPS while inside. Safe to visit as a woman on her own. I ate within the walls as the cooked local food was served on the plate is was cooked on I brought my own cutlery. Highly recommend

Lots to see.Lots of stalls and lots of shops. Lots of culture and you need to hang onto that idea when you visit. There is also a lot of poverty which probably explains why no matter what you do they all want your money. Hone your bartering skills you will need them and do not touch anything unless you want...

With Casablanca being our first stop on our tour and with it being close to the hotel, it was an interesting little maze to go through and see what type of Morocco souvenirs would be available. Also, a market for locals with various food items. My luggage broke on my very last day in town and I ended up going... More

As with most old marketplaces, this one houses many shops selling traditional craft, spices, textiles, clothing/footwear, and food. Less friendly people than in the smaller towns, probably due to the pressures of city living. Prices definitely jacked up compared to other smaller marketplaces, and you might find that they're harder to bargain with. Overall still a good experience if you're... More

Has the old bazar feeing. Negotiating is fun and frantic. Do not go if you can't handle the high pressure sale. I would also not recomend going solo. Lots of Sketchy types around. Be prepared for the hustle and watch your back is your are obvious western.
