Djemâa el Fna
Wander amid the sizzle and smoke of the world’s most exuberant marketplace.
Lose yourself (literally) in the alluring lanes of the bazaars of the souk and the city.
Stay in a Riad and sip mint tea in the airy confines of your bougainvillea-filled courtyard haven.
Step back in the time to the elaborate tombs and palaces of the Saadian sultans, and the calm and beauty of the intricate Medersa.
Dance till dawn
From intimate clubs with belly dancers and hookah pipes to-full-on techno raves with international DJs, Marrakesh is the hedonistic capital of Morocco.
WHEN TO GO
Marrakech can get surprisingly cold in the winter and after the sun goes down. Although the sun shines almost year-round, the best time to visit is in spring, when the surrounding hills and valleys are an explosion of colorful flowers, and fall, when the temperature is comfortable enough to warrant sunbathing. The only exception in that period is during Easter week, which bring crowds. July and August can be unbearably hot, with daytime temperatures regularly over 100°F. Christmas and New Year is peak season and the city fills to bursting, with hotels and Riads booked up months in advance.
