Travel Tips from people who've been to Rabat
Rabat is a government town.  There are a few things here and there to see, but if you want some activity or sunshine, it's better to head north a bit Asila or one of the other beach towns.  They're more laid back, and cheaper, too.

Muy bonita! Me ha gustado sobre todo el contraste: algunos barrios parecen haben tenido la guerra, otros estàn bien areglados. El estilo de los edificios, de las calles, de conducir, de vivir es el mediterraneo.
El clima es calido (ya en los primeros de Marzo se puede paser en camicia).
En la Kasbah parece de estar en una isla griega! La Medina es un lugar donde poder encontrar cualquier cosa a precio barato (pero se tiene que regatear bastante); objetos en piel, en madera, en metal, en plastico e indumentos. La comida es en general la francesa, pero hay restaurantes maroquì elegantes donde se puede comer bien y mucho por 10 euro.
La gente es alegre, educada y disponible. Claramente se tiene que hacer cuidado con los robos, pero la ciudad es bastante tranquila.
Los lugares màs turistico, a parte de la Kasbah, son el Mausoleo de Mohammed V y la Necropoli di Chellah.
Para moverse mejor a pié; de hecho hay dos estaciones de tren (Rabat Ville y Rabat Agdal).

When you exchange money they are going to probably give you all of your dirhams in either 100s or 200s.  For a taxi or a water from a store on a corner this is way too much money.  The best place to get smaller bills is McDonalds.  There is one in Agdal (upscale neighborhood, to get there take the 56 bus or get a cab and say "ila Makdoonaldz fee Agdal") and there is one in the government district.

Anyways go to McDonalds and order the cheapest thing they have, pay for it with a 200 and ask them to give you only 50s back.  Works every time.
