Marrakesh is a vibrant city that rises up from the desert in Morocco. Located at the edge of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, holidays to Marrakesh are about smells, sights and sounds, with delicious food, bustling souks and plenty to keep you entertained. The climate boast mild winters and dry hot summers, making it a great place for year round entertainment. You could visit in 2013 or 2012 for the Tafraoute in February, or the Independence Day celebrations in June.
Marrakesh holidays are exotic but it's not too hard to get there with Marrakesh flights landing at the nearby Menara International Airport. Flights are offered all year round from several UK airports and once you've arrived, travelling by car is easy with cheap Marrakesh car hire. Toll roads are fast and direct and the fees are minimal.
There are many options for cheap holidays in Marrakesh, but if you really want to impress then choose one of the independent boutique hotels. The rooms and hotels tend to be decorated elaborately showcasing the diverse range of cultures that influence the city. Alternatively, look out for Riads and even those on a limited budget will be impressed by the rooms available.
The variety of entertainment available on Marrakesh holidays is unbelievable, with something for every age. Experience the heart of Marrakesh life by heading to the Djamaa El Fna, the main square in the Medina area of the city. However, if you're more interested in the way the Moroccan people live and eat there are workshops available to teach you how to cook an authentic dish. If you're willing to get dirty then go for an exhilarating ride across the dunes on quad bikes, alternatively there are many monuments and museums to visit and as well as lovely architecture and bustling souks.
