For an unforgettable travel experience, you must include Marrakech on your travel bucket list. This beautiful Moroccan city would take you back to olden times when traders from all over the world gather at Timbuktu lugging their ancient caravans and goods, and every step would feel like you're living a classic Arabian night.
If you are convinced and is already planning a Marrakech vacation, here are some of the top things to do in the Jewel of the South:
Visit the ancient tanneries. The tannery district shouldn't be missed. In here, travelers will get an exclusive peek at how the materials used for exclusive Marrakech treasures are made. These are virtually unchanging since the city was founded hundreds of years ago. It's something you don't get to see every day, so make sure you don't miss out.
Get lost in the Medina's souks. You'll never know what you may find while venturing and exploring Marrakech's souks, so make sure your coin purse is full to avail awesome finds! On the north edge of Jemaa El Fna, you'll see the souks lined up in cubicles. The alleyways are full of them with varying products being sold, so be careful lest you spend too much money in total fascination!
Experience bathing in a Hammam. This is not really a popular choice for most tourists, but since you're already in here, why not do it? Basically, going into a Hammam is like going into a public bathhouse, but in Marrakech, customers of the same sex are plunged into the same area, with a local masseur (who is also naked) giving you the most intense body scrub. It's an exclusive Moroccan experience, and is honestly quite fun! As long as you don't mind being in a closed space full of naked bodies, of course.
Indulge in exquisite Moroccan cuisine. Marrakech is not just about silky scarves, camel rides and colorful carpets-it's also a haven for food lovers! Marrakech is bustling with mouthwatering dining options. Just be sure to be open-minded and try tasting some dishes you've probably never heard before in your life. If you want an excellent tasting menu, go to Gastro MK. And if you're looking for just a casual family meal, you'd better go to Tiznit, found in the northeast corner of Place Jemaa El Fna.
