The Perfect Day in Marrakech
Marrakech may not be the largest city in the world--it's not even the largest city in Morocco. But Marrakech offers so much to see, do, eat, and shop that it feels as though it's a country all its own. Focus, mostly, on the medina quarter. Power your day on the mint tea you can find pretty much everywhere. Within the medina, find traditional Moroccan food, 14th century buildings, the Koutoubia mosque, and, yes, some snake charmers too. Leave the medina for the Yves Saint Laurent museum and house. But be back around dusk to eat your way through the food stalls at Jemaa El Fna.
