A city of two halves, Marrakech offers both the hustle and bustle of its ‘old town’ and all the conveniences of modern living in its ‘new town’. Marrakech is one of Morocco’s four imperial cities, and has a long history as a pioneer in both trade and culture. The Medina quarter is the place to experience real authentic Morocco. This is where you’ll find the seemingly endless maze of markets (called souqs), close to the main square in the city, Jemaa el-Fnaa.
Whether you’re looking to dive into the authentic Moroccan experience and try out your bartering skills in the maze of souqs, or lounge around on a sun roof before enjoying the air-conditioned shopping centres of Gueliz, Marrakech has something for everyone.
