This souk is easy walking distance from many hotels and therefore should not be missed. We walked through here after dinner one evening and felt very safe, so definitely worth a walk at any time of day. There are many narrow alleys with a huge selection of anything you might need or want from souvenirs to socks to underwear to... More

Worth a trip just to get the feel of the place. Small shops down narrow alleys selling all the souvenirs you could want. No hassle from anyone and a great place for local colour.

it thus doesn't feel like Morocco. I'm not over keen on this area. I know, there is no hassle at all, but that's what I don't like! There seems to be so little of the frantic bustle and hustle of other souks in Morocco, even less than in the laid back Old Medina of Casablanca. For me, this area is... More

Shopping in an authentic atmosphere. Traditional arts crafts, pottery, paints, rugs, mirrors... I love Habous!

Lots to see with shops of every type. Much used by the locals. Not easy to navigate but that is part of the charm. Well worth a visit

There are large boulevands, streets you can walk, we recommend the Az Anfa residential quartier, to se some wonderful houses, gardens, build in pure Maroccan style and very stylish itself.

I get the feeling the souk here is actually used by the locals. It is a lot less "in your face" than Marrakech, you could actually browse and look at what you were interested in buying without being strong armed to buy like the second you glance at an item in Marrakech souks. I felt Marrakech was a more exciting... More

Having seen many bazaars in India, the New Medina of Casablanca is just as intriguing. You would be interested in picking up things Moroccan to take back home. What you physically can’t take back you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of Morocco. There is smattering of Moroccan culture and heritage on display. I picked up Moroccan shoes. The...
