The new Medina was recommended by the concierge at our hotel because my wife was looking for a Moroccan kaftan/dress. It was close to the palace but I am not sure whether it was worth the trip out. My wife did find a couple if pieces and was happy. For me and the kids I'd was average.

I love Morocco but I prefer to travel to more authentic parts of the country. The new city of Casablanca is a little to busy for me.

Be prepared for everything, from street shops until great food from street vendors. Don't forget try fresh and cheap prickly pear.

The new medina of Casablanca does not offer anything special, within a short time you can explore the surrounding by walk. It's just nice though to sit in the cafes and watch people passing.

The Community of French Architects who took refuge in Morocco during the Second World War has marveled the city of Casablanca. The new medina is a piece of jewel. The tram that became operational in December 2012 has even embellished the main avenues even better. With less car traffic, you can stroll along the main street stretching miles down. Each... More

Casablanca's new town is a lovely modern town and it has a lot of nice modern restaurants to experience during your trip.

We liked traditional leather products in Casablanca. These are produced in Fes and other special cities as handmade. We liked prices and quality. Exactly we found a good choice for buying leather slippers.

It is probably the largest art deco complex I have ever seen in my life. Just imagine if all of those building being restore. It would be so grand.

I come here every so often for a look round. I generally don't buy anything, it's just for a change. I like it, but find it rather tame. There isn't any of the real hustle and bustle that I like so much in the Ancienne Medina. Just for information, no one really refers to this place as the "New Medina... More
