Lose yourself in Marrakech

Marrakech is a fascinating city with plenty of things to do and see. Absorb the vibrant colours, the exotic aromas and sounds of the historic Medina. Head over to the luxurious Palmeraie to relax or to French-inspired Gueliz for its cool bars and boutique shopping.

Experience the Medina, a true cultural hotspot – wander around souks, rich in spices, orange blossom and other sensory marvels. Visit the magnificent Bahia Palace and the hallowed Koutoubia Mosque. Unwind in the extraordinary Jardins Majorelle, and afterwards sip cocktails at a rooftop bar, such as Maison MK. Or combine your holiday to Marrakech with a few nights in the Atlas Mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

My perfect day in Marrakech

Find out how our BA expert, Kate Bigger, spends 24 hours in Marrakech.



Immerse yourself in the crazy labyrinth of streets that wind through Marrakech and delve deep into the Souks (Berber Market). Get a feel for the endless goods - just be wary that you will see countless shops and markets selling the same article with varying degrees of quality, so have a good look around before you part with your money! Then try your hand at haggling for a good price - and haggle hard is my best tip!



Marrakech is an old fortified city – make your way to the area around Gueliz to see the distinct architecture constructed in red sandstone, which has given this city its nickname – the 'Red City'.

Cafe Arabe

It's worth exploring the winding streets around rue Mouassine to find Cafe Arabe, located in the souk. The rooftop terraces are a delightful setting for a cocktail. If you struggle to find it, ask a local as they're sure to know of it!

Les Jardins De La Medina

Head to the hotel Les Jardins De La Medina, a tranquil haven, for some afternoon relaxation after a busy morning sightseeing in the bustling streets of Marrakech. Enjoy a peppermint tea while reliving the days activities.

Le Tobsil restaurant

Le Tobsil is a hidden gem in the souk – next to Riad Catalina, which is well signposted. It offers high-end Moroccan cuisine in a wonderfully romantic and atmospheric setting. A set meal is approximately 60 euros per person and includes several courses – more food than you can actually eat, plus unlimited house wine and an aperitif. You must book ahead if you want to go though!

Djamaa el Fna

You need to experience Djamaa el Fna square, located in Marrakech’s medina quarter. This square is relatively quiet by day, but really comes to life at night!

Tips for a trip to Marrakech

Handy tips to help you have an unforgettable holiday in Marrakech.

Cash box.

Take cash with you

Exchange pounds into Dirham (MAD) before you get to Morocco, and take cash with you into Marrakech. There are very few cash points in the Medina, they are located around the Djemaa el-Fna but often they will not accept foreign cards. Shops will seldom accept card payments, unless they are high-street chains or big-name restaurants. The Dirham is a closed currency, so you will not be able to change back to sterling on departure. So get yourself a bargain in one of the souks.

Open window.

Dress appropriately

Morocco is a Muslim country and has traditions regarding clothing. Dress respectfully and modestly. Men should try to cover shoulders and have knee length shorts, at least. Women are advised to wear longer skirts or shorts, have neck and shoulders covered and it is recommended to keep hair covered in rural areas. If women choose to wear a djellaba (a long, loose garment), you will be treated with more respect by Moroccan men, and be able to keep cool from the hot sun.

Colourful caps.

Don’t follow signs or accept directions

Try not to follow sign posts in the Medina, as they are wrong and will get you lost. If you need directions, ask a policeman or souk owner, but do not let anyone ‘guide’ the way. They will likely take you to a shop where you will be ‘obliged’ to buy something or give monetary rewards. The best way is to ask the shop owners to point you in the right direction. Whilst it can be unnerving, getting lost is one of the pleasures of Marrakech.


Be alert

Marrakech’s road systems can only be described as chaotic. Cars, mopeds, donkeys pulling carts, even big delivery trucks bustle through the city. Add a non-existent traffic system and you understand the need to be alert. If you get lost in the city, catch a cab. They are cheap, but you should agree on the price before you get in – 30 dirham should get you anywhere within the Medina. Keep money kept safe, preferably in a money belt, just to be cautious.

Colourful scrafs.


A few things to know before bartering in Marrakech. Be calm, smile and don’t be afraid – it is just a bit of fun. Shopkeepers often speak a lot of languages, so don’t presume they can’t understand. Offer fair prices, as they are trying to earn a living – about half of the opening price is a good place to aim. Finally, walk away if you think they are ripping you off, they will often follow with a better offer. You can haggle with taxis, souks and also at cafés.

Types of spices.


Look like you know where you are going, even if you don’t. Never tell anyone where you are staying. Don’t accept offers for tea, as this is an opening gambit. Be polite but firm when saying no – ‘la shukran’ (no, thank you) or ‘mish eise hagga’ (I don’t want anything) will often work. Women should travel in pairs or groups, avoid physical contact with men, and wear modest clothes. However, if you are touched inappropriately, shout ‘Shooma’ (shame on you) and locals will intervene on your behalf.
