Marrakesh offers travelers the chance to bring nature and city life together in a great mash up of gardens, museums and camel rides. The cafe’s and henna shops offer a great way to join in on tradition, as well as the tours of the old religious schools and Medina of the past.
The adventures hosted here range from motorized quad bikes to camels and sights seeing on foot. There is truly something for everyone in this city of Morocco which also stands as the fourth largest city in Morocco. It has some fantastic hotels and experiences.
If you’re heading to Morocco I strongly recommend paying Marrakesh a visit and joining the Moroccan culture for a day or two.
Whether you are a shopper, history lover, or someone just seeking to dive into local culture, Marrakesh is a right destination. Beginning with the city\'s beautiful gate, the Bab Agnaou, and the Kasbah Mosque—two monuments built by Sultan Yacoub el Mansour which offer cool sight, add the Saadien Tombs near the Bab Agnaou to your itinerary. It is one of the city’s architectural masterpieces, representing Moroccan 16th and 17th century architecture. Visit the Djemaa El-Fna, the huge open square in front of the souks in the medina is the city’s highlight that is a kaleidoscope of colours, scents and sounds, with myriad shopping opportunities. A visit to the Dar Si Said Museum of Moroccan Arts and Crafts, Marrakesh Museum, as well as the Almoravid Koubba—Marrakesh\'s oldest monument built in the 12th century, Majorelle Gardens, Manara Gardens, the Palais de la Bahia, built by Grand Vizier Abou Ahmed in the late 19th. Ensure to visit Imlil—the starting point for excursions into Toubkal National Park, and of course the Toubkal National Park will be worthwhile.
From tajines and couscous, harira (the lamb, lentil and chickpea soup served traditionally at Ramadan), kefta (spicy minced lamb), kebabs and merguez (spicy sausage) to fresh pancakes dripping with local honey; there is so much to chow and drink in Merrakesh. You can also enjoy the utterly delicious croissants; or fondant chocolate, washed down with a cup of lapsang souchong. The cuisine also features plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, inimitable spice and herbs as well as sea food specialities, and meat delicacies eaten with couscous.
