Much more westernised and less crowded than the old town markets. Easy to find places to eat and drink.

A lot different to the Jemma el Fna, including the people. Crossing the roads is slightly scary. The KFC was clean and there were some pretty picturesque fountains and greenery

Main reason my husband and I would go there was for the McDonald's there. Other than that they have few western shops, such as Zara and Astravida, also ther are some Morrocon brands which are quite cheap and ok depending on what you want to buy. I bought a pair of sandals which were equivalent to about four English pounds.

Guéliz has a certain buzz that the sleepy old Medina rather lacks. Its main thoroughfare, Avenue Mohammed V, runs all the way. Modern and trendy, plus heaps of European shops to complement its European style architecture and layout.

The center of the new ccity of Marrakech is not very interesting for tourism. Basically there nothing to see so I recommend large Palmeraie for fun and the Medina for culture instead.

Gueliz is the area where expats live. The housing is modern and the shops cater to foreign shoppers, no souks here. You can do some fine shopping here. Don't be surprised if the goods are from India, France or elsewhere.

Gueliz is definitely worth a visit after Jemaa al Fna and the Marrakesh souk. It is reminiscent of a shopping district one would find in Europe with the likes of Zara, Mango & H&M (albeit at higher prices even after currency conversion). Much less pedestrian traffic than in the souk or Jemaa al Fna and as a result I felt... More

Millions of years away from the Medina, but much closer by foot you will find Gueliz or "La ville nouvelle" the new city. Large avenues with lots of places to eat from cafes to gourmet restaurants, also the place to shop - international brands included - You will find a western feeling when in Gueliz. The mix of the two,... More
