Introducing Marrakesh


The first thing visitors notice in Marrakesh is the captivating exoticness of its streets, squares and souks. Its chaos carries an allure and charm wholly unique to Marrakesh. Jemaa el-Fnaa Square and Koutoubia Mosque are different worlds by day and night. The architecture, especially the elaborately decorated palaces, mosques and houses, is another striking feature of Marrakesh. The city is a major gateway for people going to cities like Essaouira and into the Sahara Desert, and it’s also the ideal place to try the fantastic flavors of Moroccan cuisine.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT:

Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK) is 6 km from the city center, and you can get there using the number 19 bus between 06:00 and midnight, leaving every half hour. Round-trip tickets cost 5 euros (about 50 MAD). If you want to get to Casablanca, Rabat, Tangier, or Fes, you have to go to the Marrakesh train station. It's about 20 minutes by taxi to get from the airport to the train station.

Average time from airport: 15-20 minutes

TAXI:

It's pretty easy to find taxis at the Marrakesh Menera Airport but it's sometimes tricky to bargain with the driver, since they often ask for crazy prices for the short distance to the city center. As a result, be sure to bargain before getting or make sure the taxi meter is turned on, or else the situation may turn nasty once you reach your destination.

Average taxi price: 40 dirhams
