Welcome to the modernistic heaven of the Middle East with us and a flight from Marrakech to Dubai. If you did not book a hotel with applied beach and all services or if you intend to go see attractions yourself, you may need to get familiar with local taxi and standards of work. There are not too much problems with catching a taxi — they are literally everywhere and easily recognizable. If you catch a cab on a street, the minimum fare will be just ten dirhams, or couple of dollars (keep in mind that taxi drivers receive dollars rarely). If you decided to have a ride during rush hours (7-9 AM and 18-20 PM), then expect that taxi driver can refuse to work at short destinations. If you would like to go from Dubai to Sharjah, do not get surprised that taxi driver will charge you extra 20 dirhams. This is policy set up for all taxis. A while ago this charge did not exist, and it occurred that many drivers were refusing to go long ways from one city to another. Even with those twenty AED added, some of them still will tell you that this is far and refuse to drive. By the way, the standard charge is approximately half a dollar. Be aware if driver asks you for the precise explanation of the place you need. There is a 90% percent chance that it will end in the driver calling his friends asking for location and spending your money while riding around the place.
It’s time for you to book a flight from Dubai to Marrakech. This city is the third largest in the country, and you can divide it into two parts. The first part will be the old part of town, where you can have a walk and discover the national mood. The other part will be less oriental and more westernised. You will see here branded shops, and international chains. If you plan to explore the old part, then your foot will be enough to get around the place. From other side, do not forget to install some GPS app into your mobile, because by walking by many corners one your exploration, you can get lost, and may need to ask local resident to help you to get through.
