Marrakech, also known as the "Red City", is above all a city of drama. Its spectacular setting against the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains lingers long in the minds of most travellers, & the famous Jemaa-el-Fna square provides perhaps the greatest open-air spectacle in the world. Be drawn into a world of frenzied motion, where jugglers & storytellers jostle for position with snake charmers, magicians & acrobats. Your taste buds will lead you to row upon row of open-air food stalls whose smoke fills the air with mouth-watering aromas. Next to Jemaa-el-Fna is the landmark minaret of the spectacular Koutoubia Mosque, enchanting under floodlights at night.
Marrakech's cosmopolitan population, its businesses & its tourist attractions are growing day-by-day; many people predict that it will become the new Dubai... The climate is hot & sunny all year round (except Dec/Jan maybe) with temperature ranging from 25 - 45 C, so its an ideal sunshine get-away.
