Cheap flights to Marrakech
Atmospheric and seemingly untouched by modern life, Marrakech is an exotic city that never ceases to amaze tourists with its array of medieval wonders.
A holiday to Marrakech is a pretty surreal experience. Founded nearly one thousand years ago, not much has changed in the ‘Red City’ as it is known thanks to the pink hue of its city walls. You’ll still find the squares of the ancient medina full of snake charmers, fortunetellers and acrobats.
Marrakech is a city that conjures up a world of medieval pleasures and is the perfect holiday destination for people looking for the different and the extraordinary.
With Marrakech's temperatures at their mildest, January is the city's annual marathon time so why not limber up and join the runners on the perfectly flat route from the walled medina out to the palm groves and back again.
For three days in May, music comes to town with the MadJazz festival. There's a definite Moroccan-feel to this jazz though with plenty of performance merging local Gnaoua influences with more classic jazz sounds. Catch a gig if you're in town. 5 to 7 May, http://www.madjazz-festival.com/
If you need a time out from the hot and bustling souks in June, head to Anima; a newly-opened botanical garden in the Ourika Valley, 27km east of Marrakesh. This vibrantly coloured vision of flowers and modern art is the creation of artist Andre Heller. It's a soothing, nature-filled respite from the medina's dusty streets.
