      Travel in April - Queries

      Marrakesh 4 hours ago

      I am in initial stages of planning a trip to Marrakesh - Morocco. I plan to have around 2 1/2 days to spend in and around of Marrakesh. I will be travelling with my wife and 2 kids (aged 9 and 6). My questions are
      - Is this place safer - we will not stay outside after dark but wanted to get some cautions/comforts
      - are there any health issue to ebola or other scars going on in Africa
      - If I need to visit sight-seeing places, what is the best mode to travel important places. Are there good group tours that one can recommend?
      - Generally what are the must-see places that you will recommend

      PAYG mobile phone SIM cards.

      Morocco Jan 25, 2015 at 1:47 PM

      I'm in the planning stages for my next trip to Morocco and need some advice about local SIM cards for Moroccan networks. I have a PAYG Huawei smartphone, now unlocked from the venal Vodafone network and want to buy a local SIM card with pre-loaded data plan, I'm not a lazy hound and have done my homework, proof here....


      But I find the information confusing, I will need 15 gigs for thirty days, and see the potential for rip-offs in setting up the phone with the local card, I can do this myself, provided it only involves switching the cards, but the outlet might want to charge an additional commission fee for this service. I only need this data plan to check the weather forecast while travelling, I won't be making any phone calls with the Huawei, I have another O2 phone for emergency use.

      So, can any members with "hands-on" experience point me in the right direction?

      No touts or theorists, please!

    • Spain and Morocco honeymoon advice

      Morocco Jan 11, 2015 at 7:32 PM

      Hello fellow travelers! My fiancé and I are having a difficult time planning our honeymoon, and would love help!
      Here is what we've been thinking so far: We are interested in starting in Spain. Sevilla/e looks wonderful, as does Madrid, Valencia, Granada, and Malaga looks decent and we've heard pretty good things about it. From there (after spending time in 2 places for 3 days each, or something close to that), we'd like to move on to Morocco either by bus and then fast ferry into Tangier where we would quickly move on to somewhere else: places nearby Fez that we are interested in are Asilah, Chefchaouen, Sefrou and Volobilis. The other option would be to go from Spain to more southern Morocco, near Marrakesh. Places near Marrakesh we are interested in are Essouira, and Diabat ("the castle in the sand"). We are not interested in Casablanca, unless we are just departing there to come back home. We are also up for any and all suggestions and alterations, or new information and areas we have not yet thought about.

      For our honeymoon we are looking to experience a combination of culture, sightseeing and easy adventures, as well as leisure, romance, and lots of great food and authentic, spanish and moroccan entertainment. I look forward to speaking with you soon! Thank you so much. My phone number and email is listed in my signature below.

      Hello. I'm traveling to Fes on July 20th (this coming Tuesday). Can anyone tell me what time the currency exchange (bmce) closes at Fes Saiss airport? My flight gets in at 7pm from Stansted and obviously I won't have any dirhams with me (will have pounds as I likely won't be using my debit card). Any info. would be very helpful as I don't think that Stansted will change pounds-dirhams. Thanks again, Sophie p.s really appreciated the sound hotel advice a couple of weeks ago!

      Hotel, Guest House, Hostel, or Riad in Fes

      by Deneen1 Online Now Jun 18, 2010 at 9:00 AM

      HI Everyone,
      I'm hoping to come back to Morocco 18 Sept to 2 Oct this year. Didn't make it to Fes last year and would really like to go there and spend at least 4-5 days taking in the sites.
      I need suggestions for places to stay - at this point I'll be travelling alone, single female, mid-forties.
      I would like to get a room ensuite, not in a dorm.
      Preferably around 200 dirham or less.

      I'm looking on suggestions for Fes el Bali or a short taxi ride away that would be safe for a solo traveller.
      Got some great suggestions here last year, but at that time I was travelling with friends and not alone.

      Thanks for any input!

      Can you give me a rough estimate of what it would cost for a single person to live in Fes? I know, what kind of lifestyle? How about "as inexpensive as possible while still being safe and able to enjoy life there". This would be for a young man interested in history and culture, not the "typical" American tourist. And possible staying as long as 3 - 6 months (or more!)

I am also wondering about the cost of concert tickers, rooms, etc.I'm from the Oregon Coast, so not used to hot weather, but encouraged by the fact that many of the concerts are at night when it is cooler.3.Do they provide western chairs during the concert for sitting,4. and are there opportunities for women to connect with other musicians from around the world for jam sessions?5.

    • Trouble with Fez hotels

      by irishbloke79 Online Now Apr 22, 2005 at 7:33 AM


      I'm trying to book a medium hotel in the Ville Nouvelle for three nights at threend of May/beginning of June in Fez and so far everywhere I've tried has been booked up. Does anyone have any suggestions of hotels I might try in the EUR30-50 range? Have I left it too late (slightly over a month in advance)? Is there some kind of special event going on, or am I saying the wrong thing - so far everyone I've spoken to has told e they're full without even having to check.
      Thanks a million.

    • From montpellier, france to fes, morocco

      Hi! I have enjoyed reading the various questions and responses throughout these past months... Now, I have a question that perhaps one could answer. I reside curently in Montpellier, France (on the Mediterranean)... I have a fifteen day vacation coming up soon... And I need to go to Fes. I would like to spend most of those fifteen days in Fes... Not, traveling to and from. (Flying is not an option at this point in my life) I have found a ferry from Sete to Tanger... However, it will be a total of 36 hours. Once I arrive in Tanger, I will take a very inexpensive train to Fes. It is a five hour train... But this, I can live with. Money is sort of an issue as well... The trains from France to Spain are ungodly in their pricing. Does anyone have any advice?
