2 Derb Sedra, Bab Agnaou, Kasbah, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
I wasn't crazy about the thought of being scrubbed and washed in a room full of strangers, even if they were of the same gender. However, I did want to try a hammam. Les Bains de Marrakech turned out to be exactly what I wanted. The spa has...
22 Rue Bab Agnaou, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
The number of places you can eat tagines at in Marrakech is countless. Some are ok, some are good and some are just outstanding. A local pointed us to Riad Omar just a few minutes walk from Place Jemaa El Fna. Fresh ingredients are used and you...
Gueliz, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
On the recommendation of my friend's mother, who is from Marrakesh, we followed our noses until we were led to Samak al-Bahriya. The outdoor patio was jam-packed with (mostly) Marrakeshi and a few tourists and their Lonely Planet guidebooks. I...
55 Boulevard Mohamed Zerktouni, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
Al Fassia Gueliz -- woman owned and run (a pretty advanced concept in Morocco) -- earns high marks in every review I've consulted. It's pretty, and not especially romantic, despite the white tablecloths and candles. We start with the mixed salad...
33 Rue Yves Saint Laurent, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
On Rue de Majorelle across from Yves Sant Laurent's Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, Morocco is a food, art and retail gallery that is a must stop for the style savvy traveler. Kaowa is a fresh food and juice/smoothie house attached to a European...
Rue de la Liberté, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
Wonderful little shop full of treasures. Lovely selection of ceramics that I wish I had the space for, and brassware as well. A small selection of jewelry that may satiate any girl's desire for trinkets. The pièce de résistance for me were the...
Place Ben Youssef, Marrakech-Médina 40000, Morocco
While the story of Marrakesh is relived every day on its streets and in the medina, its museums allow you to slow the pace and take stock of it all. The Marrakesh Museum is housed in a wonderful 19th century palace, the perfect surroundings to...
RUE SOUK EL FASSI N°55 - KAT BENNAHÏD -، Marrakech 40000, Morocco
Our driver turns down a dozen dizzying backstreets and grinds to a halt deep within the bowels of the Marrakech medina. A gang of street urchins promise to deliver us to Le Foundouk from here. We exit the security of our cab with some hesitation....
Sidi Bouloukat Djemaa el fna 53 Sidi Bouloukate، Marrakech 40000, Morocco
Described by writer Tahir Shah as the “greatest show on Earth,” no visit to Marrakech would be complete without a visit to the famous night market on the Djemaa el Fna. Arrive before sunset and park yourself at one of the...
Mouassine, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
Here you can find a wonderful choice of products from a collection of designers including fashion (floaty kaftans as well as the latest trends elegantly complimenting each other), matching accessories, beautiful leather bags and trinkets. It is a...
14 Derb Jdid, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
Tajines are quite popular outside Morocco and I've enjoyed the country's cuisine since I was a teen. So of course, on our trip to Morocco I wanted to discover something completely new. The opportunity came courtesy of our riad's manager. When...
15 Derb Sidi Ali Tair Bab، Doukala 40000, Morocco
The conical earthenware pot of a tajine is synonymous with Moroccan cooking, and you don’t have to go far in Marrakesh to lift the lid and taste what’s inside. Classic tajines include chicken stewed with green olives and preserved...
Boulevard de la Corniche, Casablanca 20000, Morocco
The Royal door is decorated with traditional motifs engraved on brass and titanium (from Russia). The gigantic titanium doors above lead to the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco. They reportedly weigh 10 tons, and are operated electrically....
Quartier des Tanneurs, Fès 30000, Morocco
The dyeing vats at Chouara—as well as at the city’s other tanneries—are among the Fes medina’s most iconic sights. The ancient craft of tanning and dyeing, in all its visceral authenticity (cow urine and pigeon poop are...
7 Derb el Magana, Fes, Morocco
When Mike Richardson exploded onto the fairly limited Fes dining scene in 2007, he took the medina by storm. Suddenly there was someplace where locals, tourists, and a handful of resident expats could convene. They came to view exhibitions by...
13, Akbat Sbaa, Douh Fès Médina، Fes 30000, Morocco
This formal garden is neatly contained within perfectly kept borders, but the extravagance of mature citrus trees and thick vegetation ensure it’s serenely cool even on the hottest days. To maximize your time here, book a traditional...
