    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    Not long ago, Marrakech was a poor, bustling caravan town. It’s still bustling, but the poverty has long since drained away, replaced with moneyed European tourists and plenty of air conditioning. Fortunately, though, most visitors agree Marrakech’s soul lives on, in the marketplaces, mosques, and surviving whitewashed, crumbling architecture.

    The ‘souks’ are particularly astonishing, small, covered areas that sit amongst sheltered lanes and often lead to tiny squares specializing in particular enticing crafts of products. They can seem vast and confusing, but drifting around lost if half the fun, and you’ll stumble across some astonishing souvenirs. End up in the famous Djemaa El Fna, for example, and you’ll find snake charmers, acrobats and storytellers entertaining the masses in amongst the rusty fairground rides, and Moroccan market cuisine.

    The Marrakech Museum is an exotic taste of North African art and sculpture, while The Tanneries offer a truly bizarre experience, where you can watch skin being tanned and dried amongst pigeon dung. The Koutoubia, a seventy-meter tower visible from miles around, is perhaps Marrakech’s most distinctive tourist attraction, peaking up amongst the low-rise buildings north of the city, and surprisingly ornate close up.

    In fact, there’s plenty here in the way of flamboyant styles, beautiful locations and tropical, leafy, Oasis-like botanical gardens. Check out the Jardin Majorelle, for example, where cobalt blue roofs poke their way through the canopies in amongst date palms, bamboo thickets and vivid flowers. The selection of extravagant tombs and impressive city gates are well worth peering over, too.

    To best of all, Marrakesh’s new collection of hotels having regular featuring pools, roof terraces and many local architectural characters make Marrakesh's more interesting for travellers, who like more lavishness than usual.

    Spend your days drifting around the backstreets, slurping mint tea and snacking on perfectly-spiced couscous and you won’t bore of this newly modern yet still traditional city in a hurry; the harrowing sounds of the mosques early in the morning stays with you long after you leave.

    Marrakech also offers a new town that offers lots of modern coffee bars and a girls paradise for shopping with lots of big name brands.

        • The magical city of Marrakech
          Marrakech has captivating millions of heart across the world and now I know why! This magnificent city is a gold destination for any adventure seeker. The city is surrounded by old walls, crumbling palaces, riads, noisy souks, skilled artists. This is exclusive. The ambiance lends it a distinctive character and the locals are warm and the food is astonishing. This mélange makes Marrakech stand out. As you may know by now, Marrakech areas are, the Airport, the Medina, Guerliz, Mohammed 6, the Palmeraie and many more. For a fancy and chic experience, the Palmeraie will be perfect for you. But for an authentic experience, if you 'must' stay in the Medina, close to Jema El Fna. The Medina is the old part of Marrakech, surrounded by souks, little boutique hotels called 'Riads' and street vendorq. There are restaurants to be found everywhere and if you are looking to enjoy the authentic Moroccan food, this is the place to be! Waking up with the sound of the city, enjoying fresh pressed orange juice and witnessing the scenery around you is pure joy!

          Practical info:
          - From the airport, take bus 11 that also stop at the square Jema El Fna and it cost 4 dhrs (0,40€).
          But if you must take a taxi, make sure to ask your driver to put your teller on which mostly start at 1,70 dhrs (0,20€). The ride to the Medina cost 30 dhrs (3€).
          - Most trip to Jema El Fna are around 10 dhrs (1€) to 20 dhrs (2€) when you are taking it from any part of the city or from the train station
          - Check the café in Guerliz called 'Mama Africa'
          - When arriving at the square, check the food stall 'Krista' and remember to buy the fresh juice from the vendors (0,50€)
          - Dress appropriate
          - Say no with a smile to beggars.
          - Avoid the typical touristic café and find out where the locals hang out.
          - Rent a small motorbike and go sightseeing (Bahia Palace etc)
          - Go explore outside Marrakech like hiking in Ourika.
