A couple of quick questions re: Essaouira.
We're arriving late Friday night (23:00) Will there still be places open to eat?
Also, we are only in Essaoira for 1 week onlt and would like to visit Marrakesh.
How easy is this? Ideally we would like to stay 1 night in Marrakesh so we can visit Jemaa el Fna.
Any help would be appreciated.
A night in Marrakech is very possible if staying for a week in Essaouira. You should take a Supratours bus which costs around £4.00 one way. This takes about 3 hours and is an excellent, cheap way to travel. It is a coach with air conditioning and very comfortable. The scenary on the way if quite nice so the 3 hours are not wasted. There are lots of cheap hotels in Marrakech. We stayed at the the Imperial which is 4 star with a pool for £40 per room. Djemna El Fna is brilliant at night. It is absolutely wonderful and really good fun. The fish at the stalls is really fresh and the orange juice is plentiful and very tasty (probably due to the amount of sugar they add). We just wandered around Marrakech during the day and did some shopping in the souk which is off Djemna El Fna and had a wonderful couple of days but felt it was enough time there.
