5 Funky Things to do in Marrakech


Why you should Visit…

It may only be a short flight or hop across the Mediterranean Sea from Europe but culturally it is like venturing into a different world. It is a bustling North African city complete with the hectic markets and intense sounds and smells. Yet it is much more attractive and visitor-friendly than almost all the other cities in the region and one of the most popular stops in Africa with travellers.
