A Marrakech city guide – rose-tinted architecture, chaotic souks and peaceful gardens

Rose colored buildings and dusty, ochre streets bake under a North African sun, the Atlas Mountains shimmering in the distance. A cavalcade of beaten-up cars, taxis, bikes and donkeys hoot, bray and force their way through traffic jams, threatening to run over any pedestrian in their path. At the center of it all, the Djemaa El-Fna, or Place of the Dead, is a constant theatrical show. Marrakech is an assault on the senses, but it is pure joy to experience it.

Where to shop in Marrakech – a guide to the city’s souks, boutiques and co-operatives

The labyrinthine souks of the medina provide Marrakech’s essential shopping experience. Sunlight filters through gaps in the makeshift roofs; boys carrying mint tea appear on cue to seal good deals. Fabrics, spices and jewelry fight for space and attention. Behind the scenes, a whole section of leather tanneries, blacksmiths and craft workshops are busy in creating the products to sell – a fascinating place to explore. In Gueliz, meanwhile, wide boulevards with modern shops offer respite from the medina’s sensory overload.
