Undoubtedly one of the planet’s most iconic and enticing destinations, Marrakech hits every single ambitious note expected of it. Africa’s first Capital of Culture is a whirlwind of excitement and energy, serving up a veritable conveyer belt of rooftop restaurants, courtyard mansions (riads, to be exact) and innovative museums, all enhanced by the famous flavours and colours of the city’s souks.
Marrakech is a Moroccan city that aims for every one of the senses and doesn’t hold back, an ‘exhausted in the best way’ sort of place that enchants from sunrise to long after sunset. This isn’t a city for dawdling, to say the least. Home to some of the finest museums on the continent and markets that make relocating a tantalising prospect, Marrakech needs to be seen to be believed. Well, seen, heard, smelt, tasted and touched, that is; the best things to do in Marrakech require all of the senses.
