Flights to Marrakech will give you that ‘not in Kansas anymore’ feeling. This is the land of spices, souks and snake-charmers.
Like the proverbial river, Marrakech is never the same twice. Morocco’s fourth-largest city is ever-altering as street food vendors come and go, and market traders empty and re-stock their stalls. When travellers disembark one of our flights to Marrakech, they tend to make a beeline for Djeema el-Fna square. In the evenings, benches are set up so visitors can sit down to eat plates of cous cous and brochette kebabs. The souks around Djeema el-Fna square are another reason why visitors catch our flights to Marrakech. Market stalls occupy every cubby-hole in these covered markets and traders tout loudly about footstools, lanterns, and leather.
Marrakech Top 5
IRON out your creases in a hamam. At Les Baines de Marrakech you can enjoy the hamam experience solo or as a couple. Afterwards you can take your pick from a long list of massages and body scrubs.
HAGGLE your way around the souks. Would-be master chefs can shop for ginger, turmeric, paprika and saffron, while magpies can barter for shiny candle lanterns and babouche slippers.
DUNK boulder-shaped portions of khobz bread into tagines and soups in Djeema el-Fna Square and wash it all down with glasses of freshly-squeezed orange juice.
NIMBLE over to the Gueliz area of Marrakech for a night-cap. There are rooftop terraces, cocktails bars and discos here.
ESCAPE the bustle of the city and head to Majorelle Gardens. These green spaces once belonged to the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
