This exotic North African city is unique, chaotic and just an all-around very interesting place (although it can be tiring!) I wouldn’t recommend visiting the souks and main square more than once. There is much history though can be seen and I highly recommend taking a drive outside the city to get some fresh air and take in the nature that Morocco has to offer.
Here’s a clip from the beautiful Kate Winslet movie ‘Hideous Kinky’, which takes place in Marrakech – a great movie that gives you a feel for the city:
Places to eat:
Le Tanjia – delicious tagines
Restaurant Le Foundouk – high-end, more tagines, but also European cuisine
Rida.Moktafi@gmail.com / +212 670 609 876 – Our driver while we were there. He was very respectful and explained a lot about Marrakech, the people and the culture.
As always, have a great trip!
