Wimdu- Insider’s guide to Adelaide:Discover Marrakech’s top attractions and accommodation. – Find Holiday rental apartments in Marrakesh

Marrakech is the third largest city in the North African country of Morocco. Like the capital, Casablanca the city had a long imperialist history, which is still reflected in the city today . The city has always been something of a pleasure city, acting for a meeting point and market place where tribesmen, villagers and later foreigners would meet to trade goods, spend money and find entertainment. This tradition still lives on today, and the markets of the city are now famed world over, for their vast range of produce and of course the haggling that one partakes in. It is known as the ‘Red City’ due to the reddish pigment of the walls and buildings of the city. Marrakech is a popular holiday destination for westerners, as it is seen to be one of the most friendly and cosmopolitan Arabic cities in the world. The Moroccan city is a popular destination for Wimdu users who look to stay in more traditional accommodation in Marrakech’s heart. Apartments are plentiful amongst the most tourist friendly areas, although cheaper accommodation can be found further away from the main areas.

Apartments and Accommodation Rentals in Marrakech

Marrakech can be easily separated into two main halves: the ancient walled Medina, and the colonialVille Nouvelle, built by the French in the 1850’s. Each possess its own charm – Medina offers most of the older history and culture, including its ancient palaces and mansions, labyrinthine souks (markets) and deeply traditional way of life, and the Ville Nouvelle offers a more modern and chic vibe with its pavement cafés, boutiques, gardens and vast boulevards The French half of the city traditionally has the better accommodation but you will get a better experience of the city and also save money by taking an holiday apartment in Marrakech’s true heart.

Things to see and do in Marrakech

The most natural heart of the city is the ancient square of Djemma El Fna, which was traditional a meeting place for the local population. Now it is more mixed with tourists, but the atmosphere still remains. On the streets you find, a wide range of performers, that excite the crowd such as musician, entertainers, snake charmers
The Moroccan city is renowned for its great architecture, but also the gardens that surround it. The Menara Gardens and Majorelle Gardens are a perfect example of these. The gardens allow you to take respite from the bustling life in Marrakech’s city centre. Featuring plants from across the world, the gardens also house a museum and a quaint café.
Marrekech is a city blessed with history as every turn, and wherever you walk you will find something of interest. Make sure you spend time along the famous wall and the city gates, which are key symbols of the heritage of the city. Once you have sampled the sights it time to put them into perspective at the If Marrakech Musuem which is found in a former palace and contains traditional and contemporary Moroccan art as well as a rundown of the history of the great city. If you’d like to learn more about the country’s history check out Ali Ben Youssef old Koran school. The superbly decorated interior is matched by its grand exterior. Entry costs around AUS $6 .
A trip to Marrakech should certainly be incomplete without sampling the unique local cuisine. Expect to taste the finest range of teas, including the local favourite Mint tea. Other local delicacies include authentic couscous, Moroccan tagine and delicious sweet pastries. Morocco is a good value destination for western travellers as you will find eating out is very affordable

Marakech’s Souk District

The souk district is one of the main draws to the city. Colourful, exotic and ever so slightly unpredictable, the shopping experience here is like no other. Delve in and get lost amongst the market stalls selling everything, from spices, jewellery leather and souvenirs . Connected by narrow and enchanting passageways , the souks and their traders are a real feature of Marrakech and can offer you some great deals. You will be amazed and how multilingual most souk traders are and some can even guess your nationality as you approach their stall.

Things to remember

It is advisable that you agree on the price of a taxi fare before you make the journey. Make sure you always barter and negotiate when purchasing souvenirs and remember bartering can be quite fun too! Finally speaking a bit of French will help you along way towards ingratiate yourself with the locals.
