Destination Guides - Marrakech



Marrakech is known throughout the world as an exotic city with an air of mysticism surrounding it. Holidays to this most famous of Moroccan towns will give you a holiday like no other. Enter the city walls and you enter a different world and an entirely different culture. Marrakech holidays are all about sightseeing and shopping. If you enjoy the latter, you will be thrilled by Jemaa-el-Fna square where, what must surely be the largest and most vibrant market in the world is held. It is a vast square with hundreds upon hundreds of stalls, live music and street entertainers. It is a great way to spend the evening after the heat of the day has reduced a little. Apart from the square, the souks in the medina are filled to bursting with further small shops. You'll need to hone your haggling skills if you want a bargain.

Cheap Marrakech holidays are very popular with couples. They can be enjoyed at any time of year as the winters are mild. Many people take a two centre holiday so they can enjoy a leisurely break on the coast.

The standard of accommodation is first class with tariffs that are surprisingly low. Marrakech eating consists of a delicious blend of north African spices with fresh vegetables and meat. Coucous is the staple food and combined with a tasty, slow cooked chicken tagine is very satisfying. While hotels cater for European visitors, it would be a shame to miss out on the traditional flavours. Only drink bottled water and ensure that the seal is intact.
