Marrakech points of interest
Tourism in Marrakech is the most rapidly growing industry. By virtue of its geographical location, its climate and its historical ancient Medina attracts each year a large number of visitors from all corners of the world. Thanks to the serious efforts of the Moroccan government, the visitors can easily access their most favorite destinations in the area.
Rabat is the capital of Morocco, but it seems less popular than Marrakech. Marrakech has more than 1.170.000 inhabitants and gives easy access to a number of tourist attractions like the waterfalls of Ouzoud and Ourika in the Atlas Mountains. Most tour operators start their activities in the morning from this city. The most famous destination amongst tourists is the big part of the south. It is often recommended to go for the Ourika valley, if you have few days to spend, here we will focus in a situation where you have only one day to spend in the area after a private Moroccan tour. If you’re someone who likes to go out, you can visit the most popular place, Jemaa el Fna. The square is easily accessible by car or bus. It is definitely a “must see”
The most amazing activities begin in the afternoon as the musicians, storytellers, snake charmers and theater artists take over the square. Here you can also enjoy a typical Moroccan lunch for a few dirhams. You can also visit the largest minaret in Marrakech, located about 4 minutes on foot at the right side of the Jemaa el Fna square. All nearby attractions such as the Majorelle Gardens, Bahia Palace, the Museum of Marrakech, Saadien graves, Menara gardens, etc. would be ideal to do it all just in one day.
