What people usually like in Marrakech
Tourist when they visit Marrakech they love the souks.
Souks are the markets that basically spread all around the old medina of Marrakech.
A souq or souk is a commercial district in an Arab city.
In Marrakech these souks can be explored walking few hours in a day.
Very nice experience because Marrakesh souks are very active and there’s thousands of people, motorcycles, donkey carriages, shops, palaces, museums and artisans workshops.

Apart from the souks people love to visit palaces and old sites such as the Ben Youssef Madrasa, the Badii Palace, the Bahia Palace, the Koutoubia Mosque.
For some that can explore more, they usually end up also visiting the hidden Saadian Tombs.
For some off the beaten path destination in Marrakech the Jewish district called Mellah is one of the favorite by visitors.
Some people love the beautiful Majorelle Gardens that belonged to Ives Saint Laurent and were designed by the French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920′s and 1930′s.
