This is part two of your ultimate travel guide to Morocco !
Marrakech is an intoxicating city known for its souks, spices, snake charmers and hidden palaces, though these days it’s prized as much for its trendy art galleries, hip hotels and elegant hammams . It is to the medina, however, that most visitors will gravitate , the ageless city of blushing pink stone . Its dark, narrow alleyways are full of artisan workshops, shrines and sprawling markets, and riads . Once you’ve had your fill of getting lost in the Medina , you can head to Jemaa El Fnaa . A mix of musicians, fortune-tellers, dancing cobras, storytellers and acrobats keep the crowds entertained until late.
