The Enchanting Souks of Marrakech

Marrakech has got to be one of my favourite cities. The atmosphere in the main square never fails to electrify me. Whether it's eating dinner at one of the food stalls, watching the sunset from a roof top terrace over-looking the Koutoubia or wandering amongst the snake charmers, story telllers and acrobats I always find myself heading there in the evenings whenever I visit.  Whilst you can use taxis and horse drawn carriages to get around, I prefer to navigate the medina by foot. I love stumbling across parts of the souks I have never seen before and getting ridiculously lost. only to emerge an hour later back where I started!  The cultural sites are also not to be sniffed at, with big hitters such as the Palais el Badi and the Bahia Palace and, further out of town at the Majorelle Gardens. Travelling there recently with my children, I have seen the city from a new perspective, discovering a fantastic ice cream stand in the Djemaa el Fna and a lovely roof top cafe in the souks, a perfect place to rest weary shopping feet and listen to the evocative call to prayer interspersed with the sounds of horns beeping and traders shouting.  Every time I visit, I try to take one photo that encapsulates Marrakech and what it means to me. So far, I've not quite managed to bring it all to life in one shot, but I hope you enjoy some of my favourites. We have a more detailed guide to Marrakech and suggested highlights to visit here
