I recently spent 14 days in Morocco and want to share my experiences and thoughts with you guys.
As always, I will start with some background information about myself and my trip to help you put everything that follows in the right context.
However, I recommend to not skim on accommodation if you are staying in a dorm. Private rooms in a Riad are between 20 and 50 US Dollars.
Always choose the best hostel and not the cheapest. Riads are usually located in the Medina (old town) of a city which means that you are close to most tourist attractions.
So most information in this post will be about traveling in Morocco.
However, I also made some experiences with girls and will cover that part as well.
Before you book your flight to Morocco, you should do enough research to find the cheapest fare.
Unlike most other countries, Morocco doesn’t have one big airport where most of the international flights go to but many airports in different cities with cheap international flights.
I went out only once (Mariinski Club) and 95% of the women there were prostitutes. Almost everyone there wants to rip you off and prices are way too high.
Never buy souvenirs, spices, leather products, etc. You can get it a lot cheaper in Fes and Chefchaouen.
For example, I had a well sized seafood pizza in Casablanca in a nice Cafe for only 3.5 USD. I thought there is no city with cheaper taxis than Bangkok until I went to Casablanca and Fes. The taxis there don’t have a taximeter and the fixed prices are a lot higher.
The cheapest food you can get are sandwiches from street stalls for 2 USD. The taximeters in Fes start at 1.4 Dirhams (14 cents), in Casablanca at 2 Dirhams. In general, Marrakesh is the most expensive city in Morocco. It is a fun city but for tourists there is not that much to do.
I got a bit sick in Marrakech, I had two girls in Casablanca and I made cool friends in Fes. First of all, I want to say that Morocco is the perfect destination to avoid the European winter. It was 20-25 degrees Celsius every day and it never rained during my 14 days there.
