Information about Rabat

Airport - Seven kilometers (4 1/3 miles) northeast of the city is the small Rabat-Sale airport(IATA: RBA, ICAO: GMME). The only public transport to/from the airport is by grand taxi, located directly outside the airport. To reach Rabat direct from Casablanca's Mohammed V airport(IATA: CMN, ICAO: GMMN), the easiest option is to catch a train to Casa-Voyageurs station, and then change for Rabat Ville station. It's possible to get a bus from almost any town in the country to Rabat.
Shopping - Although the medina here is not as extensive as that of Fez or Marrakesh there are still some bargains to be had. You will find the normal array of baboshka shoes, baggy pants, ornate mirrors and plates etc. Interestingly all the Moroccans can be found in the section of the market that sells imported western style clothing from Asia and all the tourists can be found in the 'traditional' section. The lovely woolen paunchos are well worth a look and the carpet shops near the end of the medina are also very nice.
