Rabat literally "Fortified Place" is the capital city of Morocco. The city is located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg. On the facing shore of the river lies Salé, Rabat's bedroom community.
Rabat is well served by train and you can get frequent connections to most places. Marrakesh is a pleasant 4 hour journey, Fez 2.5 hours. There are two stations in Gare Rabat Ville. Medina/Downtown and Agdal.
It's possible to get a bus from almost any town in the country to Rabat. Note, however, that the buses often do not stop at the central bus station, but instead go through the city. It may be a good idea to ask someone which is the correct stop.
The Rabat International Airport is in the nearby town of Salé. The airport is served by a dedicated Stareo Bus that offers a direct connection (approx. 40 min / costs 20 dirham one way) to the city center. Buses leave the airport 1 hour after each arrival and the city center.
Grand taxis service Rabat from other cities. Be aware that these are old Mercedes and are often not in the best of condition. The driver may not drive as safely as you would expect. In addition, be careful that your driver does not try to overcharge you, as this is quite a common occurrence.
There are also some private companies which offer inter-city transfers in newer cars with English-speaking drivers.
What to see
Kasbah of the Oudaias, the picturesque medieval Almohadan fortress citadel, with commanding ocean views from the acropolis and refreshing Andalusian gardens on it's base.
Hassan Tower and the Royal Mausoleum, with the Royal Guards.
Old Medina, with its various street markets. The side street leading to the Kasbah (Rue des Consuls) is full of history and traditional shops. The Tourist Police is also stationed there.
Chellah - old city founded by Carthaginians, conquered by Romans and later passed under Arab rule, just to be abandoned and settled again by unbelievable numbers of birds, namely storks. This breeding ground bubbles with bird life in spring, including stork nest on the top of old minaret.
Royal Palace : It's pretty huge, you can't really visit it, the armed guards might allow you walk from one entrance to another especially if you look like a tourist.
Modern Art Museum: It is across from the train station, and has new exhibitions frequently. Well worth a walk through.
There are many things to do here, as with most Moroccan cities it is enough just to wander around and adventure where something takes your fancy
In the Kasbah (Oudaia) there is an amazing cafe that looks over the sea, where you can drink mint tea and eat sugary treats. The staff are very friendly and you can stay as long as you like soaking up the atmosphere.
There is also a large and tranquil park next to the Hotel Sofitel, where people run and play football etc. You can also use the pool at the Sofitel for a charge.
Théatre Mohammed V. Theatre in Downtown Rabat, nothing absolutely outstanding but there are performances each month.
Mawazine is a festival of world music that takes place annually in Rabat featuring Arab, African and international music icons during May.
