Make memories on holidays to Morocco
A taste of Marrakech
Marrakech is the most popular city for tourists visiting Morocco and it's not hard to see why - gorgeous, well-appointed resorts offer total relaxation just a few miles from the city centre, while those who want to live in the heart of the action will find plenty of boutique local B&Bs, called souks.
The main attraction here is Djemaa El-Fna square, the lively heart of the city, where you'll find stalls selling everything from piping hot local snacks to carpets, leather goods and spices. While it's fun to visit during the day, at night this square really comes to life, with street performers and entertainers around every corner and plenty of cafes where you can sit and watch the action.
Feel the sand between your toes...
It's not just city break action that Morocco has plenty of, it's also got beautiful beaches just an hour or two from Marrakech in Essaouira, the perfect place to get away from the noise and bustle of the city. You'll find winding streets to explore and plenty of small, family-run restaurants where you can enjoy a traditional dish like tagine, a spiced stew.
Morocco also features plenty of desert, and for many travellers a trip isn't complete without a camel ride or a visit to a traditional desert camp. If you're feeling brave, you can even book an excursion to drive a quad bike across the dunes!
Tradition is king
Morocco is a country proud of its traditions, including an unbeatable reputation for hospitality, a lot of mint tea and the practice of bartering.
If you try to buy goods in the market you'll find that they often don't have price tags - instead, you're expected to haggle your way to an agreed price! The trick is to start with an offer much lower than you're willing to pay; the vendor will start with a price higher than they are expecting you to pay. If holidays to you mean indulgence, adventure and more than a smattering of culture then Morocco is surely the escape you're looking for - check out our exclusive discounts to find your next luxury holiday.
