Compared to the exotic charms of Marrakesh and Fes, Casablanca is an industry and business powerhouse and thus often ignored by travelers.
There is a European touch to much of its architecture, and the city has a modern swagger that is unseen in other parts of the country.
Although Casablanca's tourist sights and attractions may not be as obvious as those elsewhere, you will find some gems if you dig a little deeper. The city is a jewel hidden under a layer of disorder, with an alluring blend of tradition and progressiveness.
If you are looking for off-the-beaten-path things to do, Casablanca's junk yards, flea markets and antique shops, are well-stocked with loot left by the French. Over the weekends, join the locals on the beach near the shrine of Sidi Abdel Rahman.
Women digital nomads will feel unease with unwanted attention from men. Try not to use your smartphone on the street if you don't have to.
Don't go out late at night by yourself, and try to avoid Bourgogne and Medina at night during the weekends due to the alcohol intoxication in those areas.
Many Moroccan women avoid night buses too, because when it’s dark and everybody is asleep, some guys can get touchy. If it happens to you, don’t be embarrassed to shout ‘matkisnish‘ (‘don’t touch me’).
Casablanca is a relatively good base for digital nomads. The city has good infrastructure, average internet speed, cheap accommodation, easy transportation, and its proximity to Europe is a plus.
