MARRAKECH BREAKS

Marrakech is one of the most bewildering cities in the world, famed for mysticism and spiritualism quite unlike anything you’d expect to find on European shores. Situated in North Africa, and a key city in the Moroccan landscape, it doesn’t take long after entering the cauldron of humidity to work out that you’ve landed on a different continent.

The city is extremely popular for the tourists who wish to plunge themselves in to a different world, yet don’t want to travel across the globe to get there. It’s amazing to think that less than an hour after departing Europe; you can be wandering the famously old fashioned streets of Morocco’s favourite city.

Home to a population of two million, Marrakech is based at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. The setting alone can make for a truly incredible sight when you walk away from the central airport.

There’s something about the way that the blue sky clashes with the snow peaks of its surrounding mountains which sets Morocco apart. The city is littered with beautifully natural landscapes, and some of the finest African plantation on the continent. Proud palm trees line the streets – or what there is of them – and the sheer culture of the country makes for a refreshing break.

The Place Djemaa el Fna acts as a base camp for most tourists. An ancient square with activities taking place throughout the day, you’ll find yourself lost in a swarm of locals. Surprisingly enough, many of the natives speak a somewhat stilted version of English. Other prominent languages include Arabic and French.

The Koutoubia Minaret stands in the main square of the town, and prides itself as the tallest building in the city. Tourists have every right to gaze in awe at the sight of the structure, especially during the evening when the sun sets spectacularly and illuminates the entire area.

Expect some of the more exotic street entertainers of the world on your travels in Marrakech. It isn’t at all unusual to bump in to a snake charmer or a vibrant practitioner of ancient Arabic magic. There’s an incredibly influential theme of religion across the whole of Morocco and Marrakech is no exception. Locals are absolutely devoted to their principles and many of the wonderfully obscure shops feature the sort of wizardry that wouldn’t look out of place in Harry Potter.

The Djemaa el Fna is a great place to visit for a taste of Moroccan food. Hosted outside and overlooking the bustling scenery, you can simply lean across the tables and choose the food which suits you best. Don’t expect to find too many examples of Western dining – although there are some around the modernised streets. Marrakech is a city which you have to embrace to reap the wonderful experiences that it can bring.

The city is divided by two main regions – the modern centre and the old Medina city. Both offer a distinct flavour which has to be seen to be believed.

Its close proximity to Europe makes Morocco an extremely popular destination for visiting groups with a wish to explore a deeply involving culture. The locals are friendly and typically very gracious towards tourists, despite much of the poverty which affects the surrounding region. It can be an enlightening experience to take a wander through the packed streets. The housing is extremely African, as opposed to the European style that you might expect. Shacks act as a home for many of the locals and washing lines can be seen hung across streets.

If you want to experience something truly different, yet don’t have the desire to fly in to the heart of Africa, Marrakech can be a wonderful alternative.
