What you should absolutely know about Marrakesh

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

Visit the Moroccan city of Marrakesh and embark on the journey of a lifetime. From visiting the many mosques, palaces, and gardens to wandering about the thriving souks (or markets), your Marrakesh day trips will be delightful. Stroll through Djemaa el-Fna, the main city square, and watch storytellers and musicians perform while snacking on local food sold by vendors. Seek out the creative boutiques and galleries or hunt for antiques and recycled crafts at Cooperative Artisanale des Femmes de Marrakesh. Visit the Koutoubia Mosque and learn about old world traditions. Marrakesh is a city bursting with life and color that everyone will enjoy

Learn about Islamic law at The Ben Youssef Medersa or take in the nature beauty at Arset El-Mamoun gardens. Visit the Saadian Tombs, Dar Si Said Museum, and the Maison de la Photographie. The Badii Palace is definitely worth a visit too

For breakfast, drink fresh orange juice and eat heaping piles of crepes with a variety of toppings and fillings. Make sure you fill up on the biggest meal of the day, lunch, with rich chicken or lamb kebabs and excellent tomato salad

To get better deals at the markets and gain respect from locals, it is worthwhile to learn a few phrases in Arabic. Politeness can go a long way: “afek means “please” and shukran means “thank you”. labess? Is “How are you?” and to say “Goodbye”, say beslama”

Summers are hot, with temperatures reaching upwards of 100 degrees and no rain to cool the city. Fall’s weather hovers in the mid-70s. Winters can be surprisingly chilly, with the average temperatures in the 50s. Spring weather brings short rain showers and 70 degree-weather

Taxis to and from the airport to the city usually cost no more than 40 Dirhams. But be wary: taxi drivers like to haggle and will often quote tourists an exaggerated rate. A better option might be to hop on Bus N19 for 30 Dirhams

Hop in a beige taxi for a trip around town for 8 to 20 Dirhams. Rent a car or a motorcycle to zip around Marrakesh. Travel in style in Calèches, green-colored horse-drawn green carriages, for 120 Dirhams. Renting bikes is also a fun way to see the city
