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

The medina or habbous is a very charming part of Casablanca. The food market is a nice place to stroll and the sellers at the shops seem to be rather uninterested in tourists and you can look an shop without hassling

What a great place! The buzz was great too, all dealing and hub hub of it all! It's safe and always a challenge bartering with the shop owners, where no is seen as a starting point. Don't be afraid of haggling it's expected of you as it is possible to get a good deal. It's a great place to have... More

This area is much better for tourists to get souvenirs compared to the old medina. Great little area to shop. My guide book said there were set prices but I didn't find that at all. Definitely try to make a deal.

A false start with my petite taxi who took me to the old medina - despite my map of town and saying NOT near the mosque. Market - souk - limited meaning - but artisana - Palais Royale hit the jackpot. His mistake - but only 20dh [on the meter] from my apartment at the Placa de la Victoire. Antiques... More

Only one way into the new medina marketplace with the red petite taxi - under the arch - second side street on the RIGHT. I saw a wide open door and gorgeous heavily decorated tiled walls. I framed my photo and there was its name above the doorway! Perfect. It's hard to find pre-cooked dinner food for takeaway. Left with... More
