Experience Marrakech with us

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 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 combined. With winding passages, traditional souks, monuments and gardens dating 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.

Our tips for Marrakech

  • Flash the cash. It’s often 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 Marrakech day trips to the famous souks, as card payments here are not accepted.
  • Gift of the gab. Whether you're taking a taxi, on a Marrakech tour 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 Marrakech sightseeing 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.

Good to know

When considering both the climate and what to do in Marrakech, the spring months of March to May and the autumn months of October and November are ideal for travellers. Crowds at these times of year also significantly lessen and hotel and Marrakech attractions prices are cheaper in spring and autumn too.
