Marrakech is possibly one of the most talked about areas in Africa. It’s famous for lots of reasons, from its diverse landscape to the stunning buildings it has to offer to the famous souks that have even the most straight-faced people trying their hand at bartering.
You will be staying in the Riad Marelia, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5/5. Whilst you are staying here you will be provided with a daily breakfast, which is great because it means that you can fill up before heading out on your excursions. As well as this there are Moroccan pastries and tea served every afternoon, so you can go back to the hotel and enjoy a snack to keep you going until you find dinner somewhere.
Whilst you’re in Marrakech, you might as well make the most of it!There is so much for you to do whilst you’re in Marrakech that you won’t stop moving! Famous for it’s beautiful scenery and traditional buildings you won’t be short of photo opportunities! There are the obvious go-to attractions such as the tannery district, just to warn you it does not smell very pleasant! There is also the Koutoubia Mosque, which you most definitely want to see. It is the most iconic symbol of Marrakech and towers above everything else (mainly because the local ordinance forbids any building in the area to be taller than a palm tree)!
The souks are my favourite part, I love to haggle and find really good bargains at the same time. If you get the chance, definitely ride a camel. It’s one of those things that has long been associated with countries like Morocco, yet not many people do it. It’s really good fun, but definitely beware of the movements they make are unlike anything you’ll have ever felt before. Definitely keep motion sickness tablets handy.
This deal is available to you in two parts. The first part is on travelbird.co.uk which includes your hotel stay, breakfast and daily pastries! The second part is on expedia.co.uk which is where I found your flights. This totals £250 per person. It is definitely worth noting that you can change the dates on this trip, with the hotel deal being available until the end of March! I just used the dates 21/03/2015 – 28/03/2015 because the weather is more agreeable at that time and also the flights were cheap! You can also change this trip to a 3 night trip instead of the 7 nights.
This is the perfect way for you to get out and explore another city on a different continent. It’s the perfect combination of culture, beauty and relaxation. This is a really excellent way for you to enjoy some time away from the United Kingdom.
