This was supposed to be our highlight of Casablanca, and after seeing the rest of the filthy city we had left this for last to have something to look forward to. What a mistake. It is dirty, most things are made in China and not in Africa and everyone is out to rip you off. My girlfriend was also treated... More

Had I visited this medina before that of Marrakech I may have been more impressed and receptive to sounds and smells. But I didn't. By all means worth a visit if you are hunting for bargains, although it is on the small side.

Go to the Medina to enjoy the architecture, take lots of photos, and just enjoy the experience of a different culture and way of life. It's grubby, noisy, very lively and lots of fun. We loved it.

Firstly I have to echo CNettie1! We got sucked into that same carpet scam! We were a bit tired from travelling and I was up there for the carpet demo with nosnos and bread in my hand before I could say "huh??"! However, that mess aside the market is ok. Nothing spectacular and everything overpriced but you can bargain if... More

Just be careful. There are a lot of guys wishing to take you into a upstairs room to see women who do handicrafts and only visit there once a year - so you have arrived on the right day! Obviously, they are on commission to get people in. Otherwise lots of fake goods if you like that sort of thing.

a lively place. not a good spread as in Marakech , but will do for some last minute shopping, a simple rule, if you like anything, bargain at least a third of the price then walk away at first refusal , high chance its yours....only do it if you wanna buy it though! personal take, some shops selling leather stuffs...

Amazing things on sale in the fresh food area. A map is a must or you may get lost in the maze of lanes.

We visited Marrakech before coming to Casablanca and this one isn't that interesting. The food area is a plus but the rest is like a bad version. Although in this one you don't feel as claustrophobic and the architecture is also more revealing in an historical point of view.
