Where to stay in Casablanca
The economic heart of Morocco, Casablanca is a modern city with all the trappings of a 21st century destination yet carefully embracing its Islamic-Arabic heritage, which can be seen in many of the traditional neighborhoods.
Located on the stunning Atlantic Ocean coastline, Casablanca offers developed public beaches as well as recreational areas boasting private beaches and water parks. If you rent a car in Casablanca, a drive along the coastal road is always rewarding with cafes, clubs and dining outlets offering daytime recreation as well as fun times in the evening.
In the city itself, visitors should take time to discover the design of the Art Deco buildings as well as tick off the “must-see” Hassan II Mosque - the largest mosque in Africa - the shrine of Sidi Abdel Rahman and the Medina.
If shopping is on the itinerary then Casablanca delivers on many levels with boutiques and shopping centers including the Morocco Mall, which is home to hundreds of brands in a setting as good as any in Europe.
Casablanca is a well-designed city with a multi-mode transportation system providing great coverage and a comprehensive infrastructure. Metered taxis are readily available and while Casablanca does have a bus system it is often confusing for visitors who may prefer to take advantage of the tram system that covers most of the city.

I loved how busy Casablanca was! there's the beach, tram, souk, and the mall!
This has to be one of the exotic cities/countries that we have ever been to. Loved the bazaars and just walking around the streets watching the locals transact business and communicate.
Experience of a lifetime! What a magical experience! Ahmed & Ahmed from Begaa Tours made sure my first trip to Morocco was absolutely unforgettable. I will definitely be back. I traveled alone and felt safe, happy and welcomed everywhere I went, thanks to these wonderful guides. I visited Chefchaouen, Fes, Merzouga, Ouarzazate and Marrakech in 8 days - a quick but incredible trip which I would recommend to anyone!
This is primarily a business destination, not so much a tourism destination, but it definitely is interesting, giving a serious taste of Moroccan city life. The traffic is wild and chaotic, but obviously has it's own flow if you know how to handle it. Hotels are often full at just about any time of year, so book early if you have a specific preference. During my stay, as we roamed the city streets, there was nary a tourist in sight, until we came to the coastal Corniche area, with it's clubs and cafes, near the Mosque Hassan II. Despite the apparent lack of western tourists, the locals clearly know what they are when the see them, so expect to be befriended and offered "help" by many. Of course, compensation is expected. Many goods are available at excellent prices compared to the west, but it's a good idea to scope out prices for things you might want to buy before shopping, maybe asking typical prices at your hotel. As a foodie, I had fun sampling the offerings from the many carts and stalls in the Old Medina - spicy escargot, egg sandwich, fried fish, sausage sandwich, traditional Harira soup, and more - but it's probably not for the 'delicate-of-stomach" and faint-hearted. Also, definitely try the lamb in Morocco, Good to note that photography is somewhat foreign, and it's recommended to either ask permission before shooting, or to shoot under-cover. In some cases it's worth it to hand out a couple dirhams as a thank you. Getting a taxi can take a while, but if there's room, you might get one shared with you. Always make sure the driver turns on the meter, and don't let them quote you a price unless you already know it's a fair one. Buses aren't recommended transportation for non-locals, unless you have a local guiding you, like we did. By the end of 2012, the new tram system should be in service, hopefully alleviating some of the crazy traffic and packed buses. Although this isn't a typical tourist spot, there is plenty to see and do, from street culture to high end hammams.
