It was good to get away from my Conference for a couple hours and explore the medina. There were lots of shops, although I was a bit uncertain of my safety as a single woman. I was able to buy lots of spices and a...More

The medina is like many other souks in the Arab world but you are not harassed like in other places. They have a lot of nice wood products and leather goods. The food market in the medina is a lot of fun to see.

If you've never been to one before, the Rabat Medina is an excellent though small example - well worth a visit.

Very picturesque. Nice decorated fountain. Many shops, many people, however safe. Look for Moroccan black soap, argan oil and derived products, spices, babouches ( traditional slippers)

Don't waste your time in medina of Rabat. Rabat has Kasbah and challah that are worth worthy of a visit. The old city or medina in Rabat is a downer especially when comparing to that of Marrakech, Fes and Chefchouen

A beautiful place to walk around and explore the history and lifestyle of old towns in Morocco. I have to mention that all cities in Morocco have somehow similar souks in the old side of the city. Colorful shops near each other, goods and merchandises...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
