very nice shopping experience.....the vendors are very good at marketing . Quality stuff. The place is bustling with so many things to look for and to buy. Even if you don't want to buy anything the merchants are always willing to show you almost everything...More

Completely renovated,the souk is so lively and so representative of the Moroccan expérience. You find all kids of souvenir. Don't forget to bargain the price.

Horrible medina. By the far the worst I have seen I'm morrocco so far (our of fes and chefchaouen). Place is filthy. It stinks. Full of beggars. Terrifying lack of hygiene (even by Moroccan standards). Atmosphere ruined by hawkers and hasslers. Large parts of the...More

The Medina (old city) of Rabat is neither the oldest nor the largest in Morocco, but it is one of the nicest and most manageable for a tourist. Most of the main avenues and side streets are very open and foot-traffic-friendly. There's lots of good...More

I spent two weeks in Morocco, visiting many (and I mean, MANY) souks all over the country including popular ones in Marrakesh and Fes. I must say, this is one of the best markets I've visited. It is not as huge as the others, but...More

Nowhere good as the Medina in Marrakech! They are in the process of restoring the area, but the variety of goods is nowhere as good as Marrakech...save your shopping for Marrakech or even Fes.

Go to the craft area where the best shopping is. You need to haggle to get the best price. The shopkeepers are kind and not aggressive. Make sure you don’t overpack before you leave home. You will want to bring home many souvenirs!

I do not think there is much there. The views tom outside are nice as one can see Rabat, the fortress and the town of Sale but very little of interest in the median itself. The prices and choices for souvenir are significantly less attractive...More

Once you're off the main streets, there are many roads of very civilized, covered shopping roads ... foot traffic only (and the occasional scooter). There are some of these 'roads' that are modern and some that are old. Nice atmosphere, and lots of selection. Beautiful,...More

This was the first medina that we visited. We entered at Bab Chellah. It was pretty easy to find riad. The souk street had a lot to offer. The streets were relatively wide and there were landmarks to help with navigation within the medina. I...More

Or, if you are brave enough you can walk into Medina and grab some street food. I am taking about Rabat Medina though. It's bustling at night with food stalls, very lively. Note - I am talking about Rabat Medina. Don't... More
