5 Days in Marrakech

9.3.16


I'm writing this whilst my Primark 'Road to Marrakech' candle is burning in the background, and I'm just realising how many pictures there are in this post. Even though I had no idea what was going on half the time, I absolutely loved Marrakech. A huge change from London I tell ya. We stayed in a beautiful hotel called Mandarin Oriental, which was actually really convenient because it was 10 minutes away from pretty much every place we visited. It's a crazy city, and if you're not familiar with it, it can be reaaallyy hard to navigate. So hopefully this post will give anyone who's visiting some tips, and ideas of places to go. And if you're not going I hope you like getting an idea of the feel of the city, and looking at the pictures!


The Medina

If you do end up going, GET A GUIDE. They're so lovely, and you won't end up going to all the tacky touristy places where you just get hassled. Trust me, getting chased down the street by a man shouting '100 dirhams.. 80?' is scarier than it sounds.







The architecture was absolutely beautiful, and it's really really worth visiting. The history behind it is fascinating, too. Complete with mosaics and prayers carved into the walls, I took a lot of photos.. to say the least. But in my excitement, they were all too blurry to use. Blogger problems.


This place is so so beautiful. You all know of my love for Kew Gardens, and - sorry kew - this is a definite upgrade. The Yves Saint Laurent memorial is really emotional, and had my Dad and I arguing debating the pronunciation of Yves.. and the cafe is good too.





My mum, what a babe.


Heritage Berber - just outside the gardens

 The square at night eeyyyy

Snake charmers, monkeys, grapefruits, the lot.

  6. Thanks for sharing this extremely informative article on Marrakech. I recently read about Marrakech holidays and their packages on website called homeandawayholidays.co.uk. I found it extremely helpful.
