Visit if you must

Morocco has a great number of Medinas and souks. The new medina in Casablanca is average and should only be visited if you are not going to Marrakech and Fez

too many differences in told prices and practised prices I disliked people are nice and friendly apart from business

It was the first medina we visited on our multi-city tour of Morocco. Though it was only a short stroll around the median, it opened our eyes and gave us a preview of what to expect for the rest of the trip. It is cleaner and more spacious than i expected. Worth a look but dont spend too much time... More

What fun rambling through the "New Medina" especially for a stop at the fish market. What a fantastic experience! Our group of seasoned travelers selected a variety of fish, squid, prones, shrimp and lobster from the venders. Then after the fish were cleaned, we proceeded to an area filled with outside tables with umbrellas surrounded by 5-6 food grilling establishments.... More

smaller than marrakesh but quirky and fun and not as expensive - good for Morrocain bargains - very easy to navigate round and not as closed in as Marrakesh but worth checking out.

The New Medina is known locally as 'Quartier des Habous', please note that many of the pictures shown on this listing on Trip Advisor are not of the Habous at all (I have added a few of the real one)! I wasn't expecting to like the Habous as I like the history and buzz of the ancient medinas of Morocco,... More

to spend half a day walking around. Nice caffee's , but rarely populated with women, so for single women travelling it's a bit weird..

If you want to find a relatively quiet corner in the chaotic Casablanca here is the right place. Small rooms full of clothes for men, women and children, without great pressure from vendors, beautiful mosques and minarets, corners. An elegant French-style cafe in the beginning, excellent mint tea. It should come with the small taxi. To see the small space... More

After reading descriptions of the New Medina, I expected to be a bit disappointed. I went mostly to find the Patisserie Bennis Habous, but I actually quite enjoyed wandering through. People were friendly, and there was some very nice merchandise. It was maybe not as traditional and rushed as the old medina, but it was a relaxing afternoon in a... More

But hey, any Medina is good simply for the pulse of humanity in which you find yourself caught. Worth visiting but manage your expectations - of course there are fake goods, of course there are pick pockets, of course there are scam artists. But there are genuine folk in there too doing their level best to make a living. Take... More
