I love visiting Casablanca and the new Medina is a excellent street area where the locals all go everyday.

Good prices. Lots of variety. Some staff can be pushy with sales - just stick to your offer (we generally went 50% lower)

It was ok, not as good as I thought it would be, I preferred old madina, very congested area, not so good for shopping, Old madina looked more better and great for shopping.

The new medina of Casablanca does not offer anything special, within a short time you can explore the surrounding by walk. It's just nice though to sit in the cafes and watch people passing.

The Community of French Architects who took refuge in Morocco during the Second World War has marveled the city of Casablanca. The new medina is a piece of jewel. The tram that became operational in December 2012 has even embellished the main avenues even better. With less car traffic, you can stroll along the main street stretching miles down. Each... More
