Marrakech's dominant marketplace -- the Djemaa el Fna -- has been the meeting place for food vendors, snake charmers, Berber storytellers and travelers for hundreds of years. From the marketplace, windy streets and alleyways -- all pedestrianized, save for the odd donkey cart or motor scooter -- curl around the median for miles, offering outdoor restaurants, hundreds of shops and Marrakech's answer to a hotel: the riad (a handful of beautifully tiled and painted rooms clustered around an interior courtyard, often with a pool). The call to prayer from the minaret of the statuesque Koutoubia Mosque adds to the allure of Marrakech's fascination. Visitors round out a day with a visit to a harem (Turkish bath), the sumptuous Majorelle gardens or a stroll through the Jewish quarter. Marrakech gets close enough to the fabled Atlas Mountains that adventurous souls often head into the mountains to explore stunning natural landscapes like the Ourika River Valley.
Travel Monsterit’s nice garden and shows how luxury of YSL life , just a reminder for long queue for ticketing . the size of garden is not so big and just need 1 hr to finish it. Better to go in early morning and will have less tourists.
多多It is a large 24-hour all-night market across the road from the Kutubiya Mosque, where almost all of the local Moroccan produce is found, and there are many people "selling, begging and distributing small advertisements" on the streets. The market's biggest charm is the night market, said to be Africa's largest, most lively night market. It's no exaggeration to say that even when the whole Marrakech is asleep, it's still lit and the people are boiling. It's fair to say that most of the fireworks in Marrakech are concentrated here. As the market is a mix of fish and dragons, safety is always a big issue, our guide was very opposed to our in-depth market tour. If you want to go in "exploration", be sure to be safe, keep your wallet in your pocket and don't talk to strangers
D39***87Traveling to Marrakech has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Traveling with trip.com not only saved me money but it checked me into my flight! I will definitely be using these services again!
yangduoduo17We arrived in January, the season is comfortable, there are not many tourists in the morning, and many people enter to visit and take pictures. It is very comfortable. The exquisite roof and wall mosaic patterns are beautiful and fresh. Interested people recommend visiting in the morning when there are fewer tourists.

Morocco is one of the most unique and beautiful destinations I’ve been so far. Although I only visited Marrakech and the Agafay Desert, I am definitely looking forward to exploring more in near future.
The accommodation in Marrakech is very unique and the riads, which are small hotels usually run by the locals, are the best places to stay if you’re after real Moroccan feels. They are usually very affordable and the atmosphere inside is nothing like in big chain resorts here in Marrakech.
My favourite Riad was Jasmine, located just outside the busy Marrakech centre. The design was simply beautiful- it reminded me a lot of a lush tropical garden. The food served in there was delicious and the hosts were really friendly. Definitely my one of my best stays ever!
After spending a few days in Marrakech I drove to Agafay Desert to stay in Sacarabeo Camp- this glamping site has been really high on my bucket list for years and I was extremely happy I managed to book a night stay despite the very low availability. Located in the middle of raw Moroccan landscape, Scarabeo is a stylish tent camp offering loads of fun activities and the best food I had in Morocco. Scarabeo is definitely a must stay!
My other favourite stays in Marrakech include La Mammounia and La Sultana which are beautifully designed boutique hotels.
Favourite restaurants in town? Definitely Nomad and Limoni.
I loved strolling through local markets, visiting Jardine Majorelle and the YSL museum and trying the local cuisine. Unfortunatelly one of the most beautiful gems of Marrakech which is Ben Youssef Madrasa was closed during my trip, but I would definitely recommend visiting once it reopens for travellers again!
This little square with all those amazing carpets in old Marrakech Medina and cushions and many other cute things made me want to have a stable home

Marrakesh or Marrakech - the main city in terms of tourist resources in Morocco and maybe in the northern Africa. Just at the middle of the country the place is very colorful and with not very difficult access to Sahara desert, the Atlantic Ocean, Casablanca and all other cities. Saying nit very difficult I mean that the other cities are reachable in a day driving.
