The Devil is in the detail
on 17 August 2011
Put bluntly, I can't read most of it and that is a bit of a down side for a map, to say the least. The street index is just a blur to me!
However, the major streets are readable so there is the option to get your bearings by those. My accommodation is marked on it, so I have some sense of how it will related to various other places. It just feels that it could have been so much better; maybe if they had just limited it to Marrakech - rather than including Essaouira - it would have given them more space to play with.
It includes a neat little guide to opening times of some of the major attractions; it's pretty clever in that it has details of a dozen or so places in one table.
I've just got used to the spelling 'Marrakech' and this uses 'Marrakesh', but I won't let that worry me. I've given a relatively low score. That's probably a reflection on the fact that it could have been so much better, but it still looks pretty buseful.
