The back cover of Footprint's new Morocco guidebook cites praise for earlier editions of Justin McGuiness' book: described by London's Traveller Magazine as "excellent--stands apart from the rest", this is a slick, erudite and attractive guidebook to the most easily accessed country in Africa for Europeans. McGuiness is clearly deeply immersed in the cultures and history of North Africa. A graduate in Arabic, and having lived widely in Tunisia as well as Morocco, his book benefits from his knowledge of the area. There are excellent sections on, for instance, the history of the small Spanish enclaves in Morocco and remote peoples of the Atlas mountains, as well as first-rate coverage on the history and architecture of Morocco's famous medinas. Practical information is also strong, although the book is perhaps tailored most to travellers with a little more than a basic budget to spend--description and information on the cheaper hotels is less detailed than on the more expensive ones. Still this book will be of use to people of all budgets, ages and interests planning a visit to Morocco. The language section benefits from McGuinness' training in Arabic, and some of the architectural descriptions bring to mind the descriptive prowess of Patrick Leigh Fermor--particularly when McGuinness describes the great mosques, such as Marrakech's Koutoubia Mosque. Providing insights into both historical and contemporary Morocco, this is certainly a book to take with you when you travel. --Toby Green
Advantages: Food isnt terrible, cheap deals Disadvantages: bit of a let down, food isnt the best, seats get uncomfy after a while
...where to go. We had been out for our anniversary meal the week previously and ended up getting to the place we go early so decided to go to the pub across the road for a drink. While we were having this drink we decided that we really should go there for a meal some time as the food wafting from the kitchen smelled delicious and the place was very quiet. That place was Medina and that?s why I chose to...
Advantages: excellent service, cheap prices Disadvantages: left hand drive may be struggle for some!

Review of Cabrera Medina
Advantages: Mind boggling mix of eras and architecture. Friendly locals. Great fun! Disadvantages: The old market can get crowded. Salesmen can seem pushy if you're not used to them.
...The Medina. What is it?
In March I was lucky enough to spend a week in Sousse, the third largest city in Tunisia. I could have stayed a lot longer. One of the places there that I loved to visit was the Medina.
Medina means 'walled city or town' and that is just what the Medina in Sousse is. The fortifications around the old town have stood for around 1,000 years with some parts being...
