Marrakech-2 girls in thier 20's

My friend and i have booked a last min trip to Marrakech a week on friday for 4 days. Having never been to Morocco before we are a little aprehensive.

We are both in our 20's and are travelling with no men etc...do you think that it will be safe enough for us to visit the Soukes etc?

Also is there any sort of night life on offer~?

What language do they speak.

Having been to Egypt many times ive picked up arabic and hoping that they will speak that and it will be very similar to the Egypt life.

Any advice / suggestions will be greatfully received

Many thanks

Hi Nikitab1 and Happy New Year and super welcome on this forum!

You should have a wonderful time here and great places for night life activity...as Pacha & Theatro & SO & Jellabar & Comptoir Darna & Azzar & Lotus Club & Silver..

Some here live only the night..ah ah!!

A part of it Dear Niki ,try to avoid to be "too sexy" for the old town ..(medina) not to suggest too much attraction!

Arab from Egypt will help and will be understood here..even if you will find a lots of difference with the Egyptian way of speaking.

Some French may help sometimes and English speakers become more numerous each year hopefully!

have a great trip!

Cheers! Oliver.

Hi,

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293730-i9195-k362…

From the Top Questions box on the right should help as will

tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g293734-i9196-k3658…

You won't be able to dress like your photo unless you want a lot (and I mean a lot!) of attention :-)

They speak Moroccan Arabic here so understand Egyptian too.

Thank you both for your replies its appreciated.

Do you think that we will be safe enough to visit the Soukes just the two of us?

Is there any tour operators that take you on a bar crawl sort of thing at the night times?

Many thanks

Nikita..if the picture is even a little reflecting the reality..I would be more than glad to be your guide..ah ha!!!

for sure..being your "escort" could be a great moment or the "cherry on the cake"

But..you MUST wear a VERY different way for the medina and for clubs..no problem. sound s good !

Feel very welcome to reach me on mp..! and in any case ,I will find you the right person who will be more than pleased to have the chance to “escort” such a lovely lady..!

Cheers!

Ps (hope my wife doesn’t read this post ah ha..!!)

Oh dear!! haha....having visited Muslim countries alot and respect their culture i will be dressing appropriatley for the country in which i am in. I will be leaving all my Western'ised clothes at home.

We want to visit Morocco and see the sights and experience the culture but safely.

Ive heard all about the whole "escort" thing hahaa and im sure we wont be needing one of them during our visit haha!!

During January are the clubs and pubs open as usual and do they get busy at a weekend as the do here in England?

So sad..ah ha!!

No..in fact..you just need to have your common sense and with arab & english..don't need anybody to be fine

..and find the right places at the right moment..even if being your "escort" would have been a piece of luck for sure..ha ah!!

You may just look around this forum ,try to do what you would like to do or not..and should be more then fine!

Marrakech is a great city , mysterious& fun & full of contrasts and in any case a real vibrant city you should love.

Fantastic getaway from our Europeans country..

To be followed!

Cheers ,Oliver.

aww thank you so much for your advice and recommendations...im sure this will make our visit fantasic.

We are soo excited to visit the wounderful country but having read some of the bad reviews and horror stories it made us a little worried. I.e with the henna ladies and things like that.... But reading some of the responses if i just say "laa" i should be ok.

If you have any more good tips etc i will be ever so greatful.

Many thanks

You're more than welcome Nikita!!

the story about "Tatoo women" i initiated some few months ago is just the reality my friend.

DO AVOID.

A part of it ,don't believe too much "horror story" and just think that when one person complain..one thousand have a good time and don't say..!

Last..depends of your way of perception and to have the good attitude a the right place as in each Muslim country.

Faithfully ,Oliver.
