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

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!
