We want to travel with our two kids (10 and 7) to Morocco in the Christmas Holidays. Probably from 27 dec to 2 jan. Flying in to Rabat, out from Fes.
I understand the weather will not be ideal. Around 15 Celsius in the day and cold in the evening and nights. We are aware of this :-)
So we have one week and are uncertain about how to divide our time. Thinking of staying in Rabat, Meknes and Fes. Travelling by train between these cities. Willing to rent a car for daytrips if needed.
After a climbing trip to the Atlas region, I’m planning to spend 3-4 days in Marrakech at the end of December.
I’m looking for a small cozy guest house with a nice atmosphere, not one of those mega hostels housing a zillion people craving for booze and party (I guess I’m getting too old) which seem to be sprouting mostly everywhere. A dorm bed style may suffice. It doesn't have to be the cheapest place.
I haven’t been able to find such a place as yet.
Thanks in advance for your…

I've checked through some of the threads here and couldn't see anything specifically on this. I've been to Morocco twice in the last couple of years, and haven't got the night train before but remember some of the bus services selling out so you need to buy them a day ahead etc.
I'm arriving in Marrakech form London on the 10th October and we'll be heading up to Tangier on the night train hopefully. If we arrive around midday to the station how likely is it that tickets will have sold…
Greetings! My wife and two daughters are making a last minute decision to travel to Morocco. I thought we would go to Marakesh with day trips to the High Atlas Mountains and an overnight desert tour. My wife, however, really wants to see Chefcaouen. In light of that, would it be possible to visit Chefcaouen and Fez only? We will have seven days, arriving/departing from Casablanca.
I've seen a couple of posters who know so much about Morocco so would appreciate insight into whether we would…
Hello im new to this forum. I have a few questions about the airport immigration officers in morocco . I plan on arriving at Casablanca but want to take a taxi to other parts of morocco and tours . Do the immigration officers at the airport want to know how many days i will spend at a hotel ? Do they take your passport? Do they only need the number and address of the hotel? I dont want to waste too much money on the nights I spend at the hotel(im on a tight budget)

I am taking the train from Fez to Marrakesh. Since it's a 8 hours journey, I am considering taking the 2:30a overnight train to maximize time. I plan to buy 1st class tickets. Has anyone done this? I'm wondering:
1) Will I have problem getting a taxi to the train station after midnight? (I will ask my raid this as well.)
2) Is the train station at Fez safe to wait around after midnight before I board?
3) If I have check-in size luggage, can I keep that in my compartment or do I have to store it…
