As a result, mapping out the Medina is a huge undertaking, but Rough Guides have done it, and done it successfully. By listing each of the hundreds of restaurants and Riads on the Medina streets, you are effectively given a sign-post of where you need to go.
By using the map we never got lost once and even managed to get to Richard and Sophie Neat's destination restaurant / Riad, "Casa Lalla" under our own steam, where we had previously been warned we would need to pay someone to take us there.
Highly recommended and will definitely be using it on my next trip over there.
The map itself is waterproof and we ended up folding it many ways, stuffing it into bags etc and it's still looking good. The card cover has an 'easy peel' strip so you can remove it from the map and re-attach it when you want to re-pack it properly.
I purchased this map and the Lonely Planet guide from Amazon and would reccommend both - the map inside the Lonely planet guide is not much use for navigating your own way around Marrakesh.
The detail on this map is fantastic and meant we could enjoy touring the city and seeing the sights (which are all well marked on the map) rather than keep asking for directions (which you get charged for a lot of the time!)
At first I thought this was expensive for a map of a city, but after visiting I would have payed ten times the price for it!
To give you an insight to Marrakech, it is a bit like a maze. The souks have lots of small alleys running off the main street - Souk Smarine. In addition to this, there are no street name signs in the souks and very little street name signs anywhere else in Marrakech. Therefore it is essential to have a good detailed map like this one for getting around Marrakech as you can very easily get lost.
The map also has some good points of reference such as Exchange Bureaus, Restaurants and Hotels on the map to help guide you.
If you are consisdering getting a map then this one is a must, as most hotel and tourist information maps do not contain enough detail to help you navigate your way around Marrakech.

Okay it says Rough guide map but disappointed in that though the map appears to be good that is all there is to it. No guide really to anything as expected. Read morePublished on 22 Aug. 2010 by Daphne
