  • The old city, uh, whenever I visit it, I love it more and more, the narrow neighborhoods, the red color, a very distinctive smell that is a mixture of soap and spice scents, I simply adore it ♥️👌🏼
  • Great Market to go and check out while in Marrakesh. Very big. Buzzing atmosphere with loads of great things to buy. Also lots of food stalls to eat at. You can get pretty much everything here. Comes even more alive in the evening. They also have Horse and Carriage's to take a ride in 😁❤️🐴
  • Beautiful riad 😍 Marrakech
  • This place will leave you Spellbound with its beauty And you will love the complete Ambience And Atmosphere. Come early evening and enjoy a drink from a roof-top bar and watch the markets come to life! plenty to see and lose yourself in the mayhem. Just be careful when taking pictures as you will be asked aggressively to pay!! Be warned, or sneaky ! Be prepared to get lost and spend some time to find the exit. If someone shows you where’s the exit - it means that exit is other way. They just want you to go deeper into Medina and hoping that you’ll buy something from other sellers. Always negotiate the price, because tourist always gets the highest price and you should start offering just 50% of what the seller asked you. And then you can go a little higher.
  • Ahh!! This is like walking into medieval times with expecting one of the fable characters coming alive in front of you. This places is magical. We spent around 3-4 days loitering around the Medina. This has pockets od different stuff, like there is an area for lamps then you will see lot of people making lamps. then there is an area for all the mud work or leather work. So the shops and people go along with it. I think it is one of the oldest market still living. Enjoy walking around, sipping mint tea and enjoying the food. Click lots of pictures.
