One of the four imperial cities of Morocco, Marrakech is a refreshing burst of colour in a region of rugged mountains and sweeping deserts. Flanked on each side by the rich Saharan dunes and mighty Atlas Mountains, the city of Marrakech is eclectic, it’s culture influenced by traditions, natural surroundings and modern life. With winding passages, traditional souks, monuments and gardens dating back from time immemorial, Marrakech’s old town of Medina harks back to the eras of sultans and princesses, colonialists and fortune-tellers. In contrast, Marrakech’s commercial centre, Guéliz, is an ode to modern-day luxuries with chain brands, restaurants and resort hotels reigning supreme. Offering such an exotic array of things to see, smell and taste, it’s little wonder Marrakech remains at the top of traveller’s bucket lists year in and year out.

Things to do in Marrakech

  • Our tips for Marrakech

    Our tips for Marrakech
    • Flash the cash. It’s pretty hard to find ATM’s in Marrakech, and when you do, few cash machines accept foreign bank cards. Be sure to bring plenty of cash with you, especially on your trip to Marrakech’s famous souks, as card payments here are not accepted.
    • Gift of the gab. Whether you're taking a taxi or visiting one of the many marketplaces, haggling is an accepted part of Moroccan culture, so don't be shy about negotiating.
    • Be mindful. Morocco is an Islamic country so be sure dress respectfully, especially when in the old town of Medina.
    • Sole mates. Wear comfortable shoes. Cobbled, uneven ground is common in Marrakech, so be sure to mind your step on your strolls.

    Best Time To Visit Marrakech is best experienced in the spring months of March to May and the autumn months of October and November, when the weather is warm but not overbearing. Crowds at these times of year also significantly lessen and hotel prices are cheaper in spring and autumn too.
    Getting Around Navigating Marrakech can be testing. Here’s our travel breakdown of the best ways to find your way through this Moroccan imperial city.
    • Everything in the city’s old town of Medina can be explored on foot. We recommend downloading the super helpful (and free!) app called the ‘Marrakech Riad Travel Guide’ to help you navigate the age-old alleys and passages and locate Medina’s must-see sites.
    • If you don't fancy walking, there are numerous taxis and buses available in Marrakech. For a comprehensive sightseeing experience that includes travel, try a city sightseeing bus. These hop-on, hop-off buses allow you to board and exit the vehicle at any and all of the city’s top spots.
    Stay Safe It’s always important to apply caution and common sense during your travels. Keep these tips in tow so your trip can go off without a hitch…
    • In the case of an emergency, dial 19 for Police or 15 for Ambulance services.
    • Be careful walking at night, and be especially wary around the Medina, which has plenty of dark, deserted parts. Avoid walking alone in areas that are not well lit or populated.
    • Be aware of scam artists claiming to be ‘tour guides’. Organise your sightseeing activities in advance, meeting at the designated site at the correct time, and confirming your guide’s details to ensure your experience runs smoothly.
