Travel Tips & Advice for Marrakech

Marrakech Activities


The heart of Marrakech is the bustling, buzzing and chaotic Jemaa el Fna, the large central square in the centre of the medina – in the late afternoon be entertained by snake charmers, jugglers, henna tattoo artists and musical performances. Other unmissible experiences are staying in a riad, a traditional home converted into a hotel, spending your dirhams on spices and kaftans in the souks and walking round the 12th century city walls. For a unique view of the city splurge on an early morning hot air balloon ride for a bird’s eye view of the ‘Red City’.

Marrakech Food & Drink


As with the rest of the country, traditional Moroccan cuisine is easily found in the street stalls, restaurants and cafes of Marrakech – tagine, freshly baked khobz (bread) and harira, a tomato soup are ‘must eats’. The more adventurous eaters may want to try unusual delicacies like snails cooked in broth or sheep's head, both found in the Jemaa el Fna night market. And to quench your thirst? Freshly squeezed orange juice and refreshing sweet mint tea are found everywhere – best sipped from a rooftop terrace.

Marrakech Attractions


For moments of tranquillity awake from Marrakech’s bustling medina head to Jardin Majorelle, designed by the French painter Jacques Majorelle and later restored by Yves Saint Laurent. Discover the history, religion and culture of the city with visits to Badii Palace, the exterior of the Koutoubia Mosque with its 12th century minaret (the mosque’s interior is only open to Muslims) and the Saddian tombs – located just outside of the city these are the final resting place for members of the Saadi dynasty.
