Marrakesh

Marrakesh

Marrakesh is a captivating city set against the back drop of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains, where Saharan caravans once passed. Few cities evoke as much with just their name: the Pearl of the South. Founded in 1062 by Yussef Idn Tashfin, Marrakesh is a fantastic representation of the new Morocco. The fabled walled medina, a maze of narrow alleyways filled with spices and haggling carpet traders, is of stark contrast to the modern tree lined boulevards of the new city. The greatest attraction of Marrakesh is drinking mint tea with the locals in a street side café, shopping for designer labels or losing yourself in the legendary souks and stepping back centuries. The choice is yours.
