9 Secrets of Marrakech

Morocco, Marrakech Guide (B): 9 Secrets of Marrakech

I can’t believe I haven’t written about our time in Marrakech more?! The colorful souks, the thrill of bargaining, the sweet and lazy mint tea, the dusty air filled with sounds of Arabic and French, late night chats with our Riad host Yassine, the never ending road winding through the Atlas Mountains…

Well I’m finally ready to let out the top 9 secrets of Marrakech that we learned in our week traveling there! And I promise, you won’t find Marrakech tips like this in any other blog post – from the best smoothies to the food stalls you won’t get food poisoning from to the cheapest place to exchange money, I’m spilling it all…

Definitely ask your hotel/Riad/hostel hosts for advice! We would’ve been lost (literally) without it. I’m including some of our best tips from the map in this post!

BIG general tip: if you get lost, KEEP WALKING. Find a side alley and stop and get your map/app out there. If you even slightly look lost, I guarantee a bunch of young Moroccan boys will come up to you and try to “direct” you – to their stall where they will either expect to be paid or have you buy something. Just take a deep breath, say no thank you (“la chokran” in Arabic!), and embrace that you will get lost (it’s not a bad thing!). ......
