Marrakech offers all the colours of the Middle East on one crowded city street filled with yellow fabrics, tanned children, gossiping women, snake charmers, poor beggars, and spicy food. Businessmen standing next to devout men in robes symbolize Marrakech's contradiction between the past and the present of an up and coming economic centre alive with the tug of war between industry and tradition. An exotic mix of history, which can be seen in the Djemaa el-Fna and the surrounding area, and modern architecture of curious Europeans. Explore the old and the new while tasting the culture and the food of Marrakech.

Grand Tourist’s recommendations:

La Sultana, Marrakech – a collection of five historic riads, with lovely courtyards and gardens, an iodised pool, rooftop terrace, fantastic food and spa. Everywhere is a festooned with antiques and artefacts, art and sculpted or painted ceilings - a bejewelled haven of Moroccan grandeur.
