For very little money, you can have a nice chicken dinner in the medina. Then if you get here in the morning walk a little further and you have a chance to eat some of the best pastries ever from some of the pastry stores.. wonderful artisan style pastries. I love the chicken dinners they have close to the kenzi... More

Lots of small shops, big crowds at night. Fun to walk through and people watch. The old souqs are more fun to shop at.

We left the place after 15 minutes because they can't leave you alone. Try to get you in to the shops

Something in between an old medina and a newish shopping area. We spent a couple of hours, and although we found it less vulgar than the "old" Medina in Casablanca, the traders were still of the same obnoxious stock.

Like most have already said, be prepared to be everyone's "friend". Bartering/haggling is a must here! Never pay the asking price! There are so many stores to be seen here. It's just an interesting place to see!

New Habous was a district i visited one morning but again did not find any hidden gems maybe too well hidden! Usual amount of shops and some interesting architecture this is an area that has had some refurbishment. Still quite a lot of rubbish on the the streets and stray cats and dogs seemed to be more of a problem... More

Labyrinth of a market with a feel of Moroccan old town. Be prepared to be hassle to purchase goods. Barter a good price, some great bargains to be had.

There are nice areas to see; nice stores to explore; interesting items to buy. The shop owners are not that intimidating as in Marrakesh. In other words, you can walk through here without being bothered by the shop owners.

Shame to see the same shops as in the uk, in some cases even the same clothes, but none the less a nice shopping experience
