      Hello! I will be visiting Morocco with a friend for 4-5 days this June - just looking for some recommendations on places not to miss! We were planning on spending 2 days each in Casablanca and Marrakech, but looking through these posts it seems like Essaouira and Merzouga are highly recommended! Is it feasible to do all 4 places in 4-5 days? Account travel between and whatnot... Also as a first time visitor to Morocco, are hotels recommended or are there cheaper options like inns or hostels or apartments? Safety also a concern.. Thanks in advance!

      Agadir Apr 2, 2014 at 5:16 AM

      Hi everyone, We are arriving around 18.00 pm in Agadir in two weeks and we would like to figure out if it is worth staying there ( although from the threads I have read it seems that everyone suggests that it is better not to spend too much time there) or we should head to Essaouira straight away. If we leave, can we take a taxi from the airport or should we go somewhere else first to take a taxi from there? What are the chances that we can find a shared taxi and how much does it cost these days? Many thanks for your answers in advance.

    • Female musician wanting to visit Fes Sacred Music Festival in June

      by musicalynda Online Now Mar 23, 2008 at 6:27 PM

      Hello I am a female musician in my 50s considering visiting during the Sacred Music Festival in June.1. How safe is it to travel there alone as a female, and how safe is it to openly admit to being American? It seems that Fes is a very tolerant place, but Americans are hated all over the world right now!2. 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. Anyone know a better place for a female world musician to connect with other musicians from around the world?( I play harp, many flutes, and sing) Thanks for any help!

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?
