Marrakech charms you! The people, their humor, their warmth. The lights,the scents,the music, the food…one of those cities that you have to go at least once in a lifetime.
One of the most emblematic things is the fortified area known as The Medina, the heart of Marrakech. Make sure you go with someone that knows their way, and if not be ready to get lost in all the little streets full of vendors with the most beautiful things….Typical Moroccan hat.Inside le SoukYou then have the Djemaa el Fna, which is one of the busiests squares in Africa, you will find dancers, musicians, story tellers, food vendors, snakes…literary anything….
A typical day in the square
Something you have to see when in Marrakech is the Majorelle Garden designed by french artist Jacques Majorelle. A botanical and landscape garden famous for the diferrent cactus and many species of birds, as well as for the predominant blue.It was owned by Yves Saint Laurent since 1980 until he died in 2008, where his ashes where scattered.
This cactus is named the mother in law seat….wonder why! ;)
Another thing you can do is visit the Atlas, just 45 minutes away from Marrakech,you will have the opportunity to live an amazing experience.
When visiting, I would recommend you to stay in a Riad. They are small boutique hotels, simple elegance.
One of the most Kool things I found was the use of candles.It’s difficult to find a bulb over there…..It’s fascinating the exquisite taste and how magnificent everything is with candle light.
Hope this made you want to go…coz it deffinetely made me want to go back! ;)
