very unhelpful map for getting around the main highlights
on 28 March 2016
Listing the highlights is very useful and book nicely laid out and small enough to carry around. Restaurants tend to be the very expensive ones and no extra detail on finding them. Pull out map is an exact copy of the one printed in the book and does not give enough detail (not close enough up for the immediate area around Jemaa el Fnaa. Had great difficulty walking from Square to Majorelle gardens and also to Bab Agnaou gate near the Saadian tombs. There are very few road names up on actual roads/streets so a close up of the various roads would have been helpful. Was assisting some fellow traveller I met and they had a far clearer map. Even had difficulty finding the Ben Yousef house which is just a little way North. Encountered many 'helpful' people along my travels who ask where you are going and seem to point you down the least crowded alleyways and also tell you things are closed. Went to the Bahia Palace (not listed as main highlight in book but was in their pages of the Kasbah area) and this certainly seemed worth a visit. Easy to get to as on a main walkway from the square and is only 10 dirhams to enter and there is plenty to walk around, in the cool shade too. Was travelling from the Bab Agnaou gate and encountered one person who said it closes at 2pm and another who said it opens in 45 mins. Neither were true as it was open all day. Best to have a good map and not take the 'helpful' advice offered.
