Marrakesh In Morocco

Flights to Marrakesh from EGP:  3900

If not for its attractions, then for its Agrabah labyrinth like market. The moment you step in it’d fascinate you; merchants selling all sorts of goods, street performers, monkeys and snakes charmers, food stalls serving during the day foods that are not served at night! Gambling, and other fun games are played at night.

The Majorelle Gardens is a must visit with its cheerfully painted in blue, and yellow architecture, this is where a memorial of the French world famous designer Yves Saint Laurent lies, and where his ashes were scattered -as he was one of the Gardens’ owners-, the Ben Youssef School, and Mosque where Islamic art is revealed in lively colors, not to mention the pampering offered at Moroccan Hammams, the charm of Moroccan Riads -the Moroccan version of Boutique Hotels-, all the street food, refreshing green tea with mint, and energy of the Jemaa Al Fna markets.

You cannot miss taking a dip at the River of 1000 Lingas, and a visit to Ta Prohm temple; a temple that has been swallowed “covered” by the jungle surrounding it, and the Bayon temple known by its faces engraved in stones. Both temples have been used as filming locations for Lara Croft’s Tomb Raider, and Indiana Jones.
