Magical deals on hotels in Marrakech
Boho meets Berber as bargain-hunting travellers head into the souks and medinas of Marrakech to sip mint tea with friendly locals.
Choc-a-bloc with charm, Marrakech is a feast for all the senses. Aromatic spices drift out from the Medina, the hum of haggling rattles around the labyrinthine souks, and lemon-scented tagines will put you in the mood for dinner.
A brilliant if slightly overwhelming way to start your trip to Marrakech is with a visit to the Djemaa el-Fna square. The square has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to a lively market. You’ll be able to see snake charmers and acrobats while you sample some exotic food from its many barbecues. The south-west end of the market is home to belly dancers and amateur boxers. It’s not hard to see why the square has been a centre of culture for 1,000 years and it’s a great introduction to the city.
If you’re a fan of relaxing spas you should try visiting a Moroccan hammam which offers something very different from what you might be used to. If you visit a traditional hammam they will offer you a gommage. The treatment is a full-body scrub that will restore your skin to amazing new-born-baby softness via the very rough application of a special glove. More modern hammams are also available and they offer private steam rooms and relaxing oil massages.
If you want to explore some of Marrakech’s nature a great place to visit is the Jardin Majorelle gardens. Formally owned by Yves Saint Laurent, the gardens contain an exquisite collection of rare plants and flowers. The garden also has a great café offering juices and salads where you can sit and enjoy the view.
Marrakech can be a very difficult place to navigate through by yourself so a great way to get your bearings and see all the tops sights is with a walking tour. The tours are usually intimate affairs with a maximum number of seven people per group. You will get a chance to visit the splendid Bahia Palace which has fantastic gardens and many tranquil courtyards. The tour also visits the excellent Photography Museum of Marrakech which has a vast collection of over 4,500 photos that offer a trip back in time to Morocco’s past.
