My shopping experience was fun and productive. I bargained for some great buys on classic Moroccan souveniers. I never felt hassled, unsafe or misled.

We had a riad in the medina and spent three days wandering around. It is a maze and at times sheer bedlam and like other reviewers have said, will overpower the senses. The vendors are very pleasant and friendly. The goods on display are the...More

Or, if you are brave enough you can walk into Medina and grab some street food. I am taking about Rabat Medina though. It's bustling at night with food stalls, very lively. Note - I am talking about Rabat Medina. Don't... More
