Marrakesh, home to beautiful palaces, gardens, night market and mosques, is an enchanting city that will make you want to revisit every summer for years to come.

This city is easily one of the most unique and fascinating cities with beautiful boutiques, riads (traditional guesthouses), and spectacular architectures that will blow you away. Located on the Saharan dessert, you will find plenty of activities to partake in from camel riding to exploring hidden palaces.

This thousand year old city is bustling with tourists and it’s easy to travel to from anywhere around the world. The oldest historic part of Marrakesh, is called Medina and is a popular area for tourists with its lineups of souks (traditional markets) for antiques, crafts, spices and affordable souvenirs. When wandering around Medina, stopping by a Hammam, a bath house, is highly recommended and is an experience that one should not miss out on.

Marrakesh is a city to get lost in and each alley is guaranteed to give you a different experience from its maze-like narrow cobblestone lanes to the use of vibrant and bold colors around walls and tiled mosaics that easily make for breathtaking backdrops.
