Marrakech is one of those places that I’d never get bored of. From exotic souks and museums to traditional guesthouses, everywhere is lively and brightly coloured – seriously, I’ve never had so much Instagram game. It’s not all cultural, though; there’s incredible food, great shopping and luxe spas, too. Grab your mates and go, like, now.
MARRAKECH TOP TIPS
1 Stay Near a Souk Stay in a traditional moroccan guest house (riad) near to asouk( marketplace) for a unique experience. you get a real feel for the city and some even have personal chef sand butlers such astheincredibleriaddarelsouk(darelsouk.com).
2 respect the DRESS There are no specific rules but it’s polite to dress more conservatively. I’d recommend taking a pashmina to drape around your shoulders and wear long, loose skirts.
3 Barter, Barter, Barter The souks are brimming with trinkets, incredible textiles and amazing pashminas but make sure you haggle the price. You can also negotiate taxi trips and horse and carriage rides – a picturesque way to see the city at night.
