Useful city facts
- Although Oujda’s climate is technically classified as cold and semi-arid, the city is, in fact, one of the hottest places in Morocco outside the Sahara. The average high temperature is 33°C (92 °F) in August, the warmest month, with temperatures exceeding 40°C (104°F) on many days every summer. The average high temperature is 16°C (60°F) in January, the coolest. Summers are very dry; there is an increase in precipitation every winter, albeit not as big as in the Moroccan cities on the coast like Rabat or Essaouira.
- Although Oujda is located right on the border with Algeria, Morocco’s large eastern neighbor and Africa’s largest country, the border is closed for locals and tourists alike. In recent years, there have been frequent talks of opening the border, but as of January 2020, they are yet to come to a result.
- Oujda is one of the centers of Gharnati music. Originating in Spain’s Andalusia region when it was ruled by Muslims, it is now very popular in Morocco and neighboring Algeria. Considered part of Classical Andalusian music, you can often hear the haunting Gharnati sounds in Oujda’s streets and in many festivals that are held in the city.
Top destinations and activities
- Medina and the souks. Although perhaps not as large and busy as souks or markets in some other large cities of Morocco, Oujda’s medina is nonetheless the best place to learn about the city’s character, make new friends, and appreciate the skill of local craftsmen.
- Park Lalla Aicha. Just south of medina is Park Lalla Aicha, a beautiful green area that’s very popular with the locals. Park your rental car right outside it and go on a long relaxing walk, have a picnic, or enjoy a cup of real Moroccan coffee.
- Oujda Mosque. Very important for local believers, this religious building is famous for its large blue carpet and is as impressive from outside as it is from outside. The center of the mosque is reserved for Muslims on their prayers, but everyone is allowed to calmly observe and appreciate the beauty of the place.
Traffic and parking tips
- Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 120 km/h on highways (autoroutes), 100 km/h on roads outside urban cities that are not highways, and 60 km/h within populated areas.
- Even inside some big cities, and in the most smaller towns and villages, there are no special lanes for cyclists or sometimes even sidewalks for pedestrians. In those cases, you’ll be sharing a road with them, so be extra careful.
- Road signs are written in both Arabic and French. If you don’t know either of these languages, it’s good to learn at least the main terms in one of them before renting a car.
- The legal alcohol limit is 0.00% for both experienced and novice drivers. Drunk driving can lead to large fines and even jail time or deportation.
- The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
- If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
- The nation-wide emergency police number is 19 and the nation-wide ambulance and fire safety department number is 15.
A toll needs to be paid for using most of Morocco’s highways or autoroutes. All of the toll roads in Morocco are administered by the state-owned company Autoroutes du Maroc (ADM).
Morocco uses a “closed system” for its toll roads, meaning that there is a toll booth both at the entrance and the exit of the toll road. You pay either by cash or by credit card (although some toll points might only accept cash so it’s good to have some available at all times). Make sure to keep any proof that you have paid for the toll road as police checks are frequent and fines can be hefty. The prices for using the toll roads are generally quite low.
Most of the toll roads connect the largest cities of the country. Oftentimes you can opt to use regional roads instead - while traveling along those will be much slower, the views are usually much more scenic.
Ideas for a day-trip
- Saïdia. Offering one of the longest beaches in Morocco, Saïdia’s golden sands have long attracted visitors from all over. Full of coastal restaurants and opportunities for water sports, it is only an hour’s drive from Oujda. Saïdia' is surrounded by a eucalyptus forest, and in the nearby forests and wetlands you’ll also find a bird preserve. If you’re visiting in August, make sure to visit the local folk music festival.
- Nador. Another destination of world-class beaches and long promenades, Nador is an exciting place to visit. Once you’ve properly enjoyed the Mediterranean Sea, take a walk through the city center where Iberian architectural influence can be observed in beautiful Catholic churches.
- Taza. This small town, lying in the corridor between the Rif Mountains and the Atlas Mountains and next to the Tazekka National Park, is famous for its impressive Medina Walls that offer picturesque views of the surrounding valleys. Just south of Taza you’ll find Friouato Grotte, a large cave and tunnel system.
Most popular rental types and cars
The most popular rental car types in Morocco are Economy, Mini, and Intermediate. Most of Morocco’s national motorways are in great shape, but if you plan to drive in the mountains, it might be a good idea to rent a 4x4 vehicle. The most popular rental cars in Morocco are the Hyundai i10, the Dacia Logan, and the Renault Clio.
- Tetouan and Tangier. Drive along the Mediterranean Coast and you’ll reach Tetouan, a beautiful and traditional Moroccan city with extraordinary Medina. Just a bit further lies Tangier, perhaps the most international and free-thinking city of Morocco.
- Fez: One of the great cities of the Arab World, Fez is both an old time legend and a busy metropolis. Visit its many souks or markets where leather tanners still practice techniques that have been used for centuries.
- Atlas Mountains. Impressive yet accessible, the Atlas Mountains have something for every traveler, whether you’d like to visit small Berber villages on the mountainous foothills or to try to conquer the highest peaks.
