Quick Guide

  • Arabic
  • Moroccan dirham

The bustling Moroccan city of Marrakech will have you smiling ’til it hurts, licking your lips at the mouth watering food, scratching your head at the confusion, and shaking your head at how the madness just seems to work.

The main square Djemaa el-Fna is the beating heart of the city. The maze of market souqs sprout out from the northern end. This is Marrakech’s real highlight. Find all manner of souvenirs, artisan handicrafts, antiques, and produce. From bargains to precious pieces, this is a shopaholics dream.

Beyond the souqs are the opulent palaces and riads, many of which have now been converted into accommodations. The best way to escape the madness of the city is at a traditional hammam. Unwind with this ancient tradition involving bathing and scrubbing.

The Maison de la Photographie is an unique little collection of old Moroccan photography and is well worth a visit, as is the Musee de Marrakech.

Whilst the Old Town is where most of the tourist attractions are, getting out to the new town is great to see what modern day Moroccan life looks like, and to find some of the best dining options in the city today. Or get right out of town to the deserts and palm oasis.
