Rabat

*While Morocco has experienced a number of anti-government rallies in recent months, the government's response has been progressive and there has been no widespread violence. It is wise to consult your travel agent or tour operator before travelling to Rabat, but for now, there is no immediate danger. Tourists are always advised to avoid any political gathering when travelling in Rabat.

Rabat, Morocco's capital, is a modern city with wide boulevards and gardens and light, white buildings, and is for the most part a far cry from the hectic warrens of the other Imperial cities of Marrakech and Fez. It is, however, no less steeped in history with its origins dating back to the 7th century. The King of Morocco lives here in his palace amid trees and flowers. Being an administrative capital the city is somewhat conservative and serious, but there is some local colour to be found in the old part of the city, the Medina, and the Kasbah, where there is a more relaxed atmosphere. Recreational opportunities abound too, with a world-renowned golf course (the Dar Es Salaam Course) and a few lovely beaches at hand. Rabat sits on the Atlantic coastal plain at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg, opposite its twin city of Sale.

Information & Facts

Climate

Rabat has a mild and temperate climate, its weather ranging from cool in winter (December to February) to warm in summer (June to August). The average high in summer is 82°F (28°C) and winter temperatures drop to an average low of 46°F (8°C). The highest rainfall generally falls in November and December, with July and August being the driest months. The best time to visit Rabat is between April to November.

Language

Arabic is the official language, but eight other languages are also spoken including Berber, French and Spanish. English is generally understood in the tourist areas, but French is the most widely spoken.

Money

The unit of currency is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD), which is divided into 100 centimes. ATMs are available in the larger towns, but can be unreliable; currency can be exchanged at banks or official bureaux de changes, which are also widespread in major towns. Dirhams cannot be obtained or exchanged outside Morocco and receipts must be retained as proof of legal currency exchange, as well as in order to re-exchange money when departing. Major credit cards are accepted in the larger shops, hotels and restaurants. Travellers cheques can be used in tourist areas, but are not prevalent; they are best taken in Euros or Pounds Stirling.
