Mar­rakech

Look (UK) - - TRAVEL -

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.
