  • The red city of Marrakesh is an overwhelming, completely enchanted jumble of spices, scents and sounds, which exudes authenticity and mystery which will leave even the most intrepid traveler spell bound. Set in a backdrop of snow-capped Atlas Mountains, yet blessed with the amazing African climate, Marrakesh is the capital of the Moroccan south, and is a winning destination for any visitor. The city is split into two parts; the old fortified city, known as the Medina and marked out by an ancient 14th Century fortress wall, and the new modern area of the city which is to be found outside the old walls and is bustling with commerce and business, as a reminder of Marrakesh's economic importance in North Africa.
    The main places of interest are dotted around the Djemaa el-Fna, which is the main square of the historic part of the city. A vast open arena, the square is a crazy clash of scintillating sounds and aromas, alerting all senses. Through the day and into the night the area is waylaid by henna artists, potion sellers, snake charmers, dancing monkeys, and fortune tellers who emanate a sense of timelessness charm and longevity, which will throw you completely into the unique Moroccan culture. Undoubtedly, you will be instantly drawn into the amazing labyrinthine myriad of Marrakesh's covered street markets. For even the most reluctant shoppers, the 'souqs' are completely mesmerizing; out of the narrow streets spill a millions stalls selling everything, from embroidered slippers and leather belts to magic carpets and potions promising the elixir of life. Allow yourself to surrender all your senses, forget your bearings, and get ready to practice your haggling skills- embroiling yourself in the dizzy chaos of the souqs often results in coming away with a new carpet or two!
    For a bit of respite out of the tumultuous market scene, Marrakesh also offers some tranquil historic spots. Head to the Jardin Majorellle; public gardens once owned by the famous French painter Jaques Majorelle, who spent most of his lifetime residing in Marrakesh. After a stroll through palms, bamboos and cacti, check out the museum, for a marvel at the wall hangings of rich textured fabrics, 15th century Korans and illustrated books of prayer, as well as more recent designs from the famous Yves Saint Laurent, who is the present owner of the establishment.
