With its bustling souks, flavorful food, and famously welcoming hospitality, it’s no wonder that tourists are starting to take note of Marrakesh.
One might think that it is just one of the innumerable Islamic towns having a glorious past. But it is not just that. There are so many things in the town that displays a western influence on it. Crowded alleys contrast with flower-lined boulevards, luxe hotels rise beside traditional guesthouses. Oriented towards Africa, Marrakesh has strong Berber influences and a hearty dose of Western cosmopolitanism, French designer chic and heady nightclubs where you really can rock the kasbah.
There are so many Historic sights include the royal Saadian Tombs, ornate with plasterwork and stained glass amid a high-walled rose garden; rambling Bahia Palace; and Ben Youssef Medersa, a stunning Koranic school elaborate with cedar-wood carvings and stucco work.
