Last week we took a trip to Marrakech with my boyfriend. We stayed for a couple of days in a traditional hotel (riad) in the center of Medina, the old town of Marrakech. When we got there the very first night, it seemed like a hidden treasure because of those narrow streets and local marrocan souk.
First day we visited a lot of amazing places such as Majorelle Garden, which was my most favourite one. The heart of Marrakech known as a square of Jemaa el- Fnaa which has the most pulsing and buzzing atmosphere. There are all around local snake charmers and various artists among stands full of fresh orange juices and medjool dates.
We visited the largest mosque Katoubia, incredibly beautiful palaces of Bahia and El Badi with its unique architecture. The Secret Garden and many other gorgeous places. We were strolling the town all day long, getting lost in the streets of Medina, which was so easy because the old town seemed like a huge labyrint to us. Drinking delicious marrocan tea, tasting tajine and couscous and encountering new situations out of ordinary, which built our unique marocain experience.
The last day, we wanted to get out of the town and explore some areas out of Marrakech. Due to the fact, that we stayed only four nights, we chose to go to Palmeraie. An oasis which is about an half-hour away and is more like a tourist attraction. We rented quad bikes, spent all afternoon riding in beautiful desert terrain and visited traditional Berber settlements. I really enjoyed Marrakech. It was a city full of surprise, colours, smells and flavours. Nevertheless, next time we will have to come back here for longer. To discover other lovely cities such as Fès or Chefchaouen. And of course a trip to desert which will stay on my list.
