Ok, you need to understand this is a cultural experience. Noisy, busy, exciting, intense...all at the same time. Leather goods, clothing, food, toys, seafood, nuts, amazing fresh produce... enjoy the experience

An assortment of goods from fruit to diamonds! Lots and lots of people, so if you are not into loud, pushy crowds, dont bother. Can find some good deals, for local items, but most else is fakes or imitations. More for the ambiance than the shopping.

Was in Casablanca for a couple of days back in April and wondered around this part of the city for a few hours. Lots of lovely corners and good shopping. Great hot bread bought from the stalls :) definitely worth a visit while in Casablanca. Get lost and explore !

if you like open markets that have everything you could want, from clothes, shoes, purses, perfumes, etc, this is the place. The old medina is a fun place to walk through and to bargain for those one of a kind items. Great place to people watch and be ready to use your bargaining skills!

Great fun, busy, smelly, exotic - a MUST to visit and lose yourself in. You can buy anything here - always haggle, they expect it & is part of the fun. Wish I had more baggage allowance !!

It is really local area when you walk deeper inside, walk pass the shopping area. At night local people are hanging out on the small street, sometimes a bicycle cross by, it is like back to the past. Since it is not a shopping area/ tourist area, you can really see the local life. Unlike the medina in Fes or... More

This was my second visit to the Old Medina and I was able to visit areas that I never got to on my first visit. The Old Medina is very large and the roads and quite winding. The best way to go through it is to go down one road and return to the starting point and then go down... More

Would like to warn people though...... I have to say it was the worst... More

I'm happy I got lost in the old Medina of Casablanca. I start with this information because the place felt organic -- not orchestrated, the way the rectilinear medina in Rabat felt at times, but as if it grew from the fever dreams of a thousand years of mercantile effort.
