20A down or fleece jacket should be sufficient, but the winter wind in Essaouira can be miserable. The desert likely will be cold too, especially at night.

Thanks for the insight..
Yes, I will be taking CTM..Glad to hear that its safe and comfortable...its long hours night bus so,safety are my main concern..and i suppose they will have a few toilet break ? :-) :-)
For desert trip,we will do it once we reach Marrakech,we will be spending ~6 days there..so we will have desert trip in between..

Yes, I agrree with you ,that sometimes, the killing part is the wind.
So, I think I need those warm clothing...
In my country,we sleep in the aircond ~ 18 ~ 22 degree celcius ( !!!) ,..even the shopping mall are sometiems so so super cold.....but winter wind is all different.ANd yeah,I heard the desert are super cold too...
But i always failed in determine the "warm clothing ". :-(
I went to Athens sometimes ago,and all prepared.In the morning a bit cold that I put my jacket ,but all Canadian in my walking tour just wear beach sandal with short pants and sleeveless t-shirt... LOL !
They are so used to their minus 20 degree winter i think .. :-)
so,to be on safe side, i will bring some jackets..

25It is always better to use dirhams to buy anything in Morocco.
And 30 euros a day for one person should be more than enough for good food.

27ah great !!Thanks for the response..
Now, the day are nearer ,and I am furnishing my itinerary/plan...
Riad in Casa /Fes/Marrakech/3d 2n desert trip - all booked.
Now..I am checking on the detail..
1.I will be taking train from Casa --> Fes - train scheduled checked.
OK, after spent time in Fes,we will be taking night bus from Fes >>> Marrakech.
Now,where is the bus station?Is it near to train station?
We will be staying at Riad Dar El yasmin
***thinking of travel time etc,from Riad to bus station etc..
(plan to buy the bus ticket a day in advance - on the day we arrive in Fes)
2. During our stay in Marrakech, there is one day we allocate for a day trip to Essaouira..
(will buy the CTM bus ticket in advance the day we arrive Marrakech)
Where is the bus station (Marrrakech --> Essaouira ) located?
Is it walking distance from Djemaa El Fna?
we will be staying at Djemaa El Fna Hotel Cecil 2n + El kennaria 1n ( due to room avalibility, we stay in 2 places for different day )
