Marrakech is a world famous city of atmosphere and allure. Walk through the city walls into the Djemaa el-Fnaa and it is as if you are transported into another era. This vast market square, the main medina, is filled with market stalls of all descriptions, street entertainers singing songs, telling stories, charming snakes or performing tricks. The alleyways of the souks are packed to the gills with sellers offering an eclectic mix of goods. In the past, you'd find one souk was for leather, one for pottery etc. Now it seems everyone sells a little bit of this and a little bit of that. The sounds and the smells of the place all add to Marrakech's exotic appeal. Bear in mind that haggling is a national pastime and no one expects to be given the asking price. The stated price is often inflated by fifty per cent or more, so forget any bashfulness and join in the sport. If you wish to relax after an exhausting day, pamper yourself with a visit to the hammams and spas. Once you leave the medina you enter a modern city where you'll find familiar shops and European style restaurants. While in Marrakech, you could take a trip to the Atlas Mountains where you can visit a traditional Berber village or trek in the foothills.
