Holidays in Marrakech with Click&Go
Marrakech holidays are the stuff of dreams where you will encounter some of the most exciting and exotic attributes imaginable. A visit to this city is like stepping into a bygone century where much of the rich culture and language of the indigenous Berber people is preserved.
Without doubt, the jewel in Morocco's crown is Marrakech. To visit the city at sundown, stand around the famous square, Djemaa el Fna and soak up the extraordinary atmosphere is a near religious experience. I can only describe watching snake charmers, fakirs, acrobats, organ grinders, flamethrowers and water sellers as being part of an enormous tapestry where the threads of a biblical way of life are still being woven.
In Marrakech you will witness a way of life that has not changed for centuries and yet, you will experience quality modern hotels, delightful local and luxurious riads and superb service side by side. No wonder it is the 5th most visited city in the world........ The magic of Marrakech unfolds before your very eyes. Make sure it is on your Bucket List.
