If you are looking for a unique and exciting vacation destination without the intricacies and distinct atmosphere, the beautiful Moroccan city of Marrakech might just be the right choice for you. There is so much to see and see, with breathtaking views, great food, and friendly people, all adding to the wonderful experience of North Africa.
Despite the fact that so many people regularly visit the magnificent city of Marrakech every year, it is important to remember that the greatest respect is to respect the various traditional and cultural aspects of the city. There are also many tips you should take with you before traveling to make your experience even more wonderful.
1: Finish all the dirhams you have before you leave
you cannot exchange the one dirham (Moroccan currency) you had before you left as it is a closed currency. Therefore, you should try to organize your expenses in such a way that you spend all the money you withdraw at the start of the trip. When you find that you have a few dirhams left, use it to buy some of the many pretty stalls on the streets of Marrakech. There are many wonderful exotic items to take home for decorative purposes such as carpets and leather goods.
2: Catch a Cab
The medina area is quite small, but it is almost always busy, so taking a taxi to and from certain destinations is helpful. Sometimes the streets are quite crowded so air bubbles and a potentially congested environment can be avoided with the help of highly efficient taxis. The cabins are much more accessible than you might think, so you don’t have to limit yourself to walking or other types of public transport. The lodge also gives you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the unique medina ambiance.
3: Dress to suit
There is a delightful traditional feel to Marrakech that popular Moroccan culture adds even more. Morocco is a devout Muslim country with a religion that is strictly followed in many parts of the city. Out of respect for the cultural and religious values of Marrakesh, we advise everyone visiting it to comply with certain dress requirements. This means that most men should wear light t-shirts and pants, not shorts and vests, while women should try to cover their shoulders and wear skirts or shorts that cover the knees. While there may not be the consequences, be more appreciative and sensitive to cultures other than our own.
4: Ignore the road signs
it’s a fun tip to start with, but it doesn’t make sense to follow the various road signs you come across all over town. Even someone with the sharpest directional sensitivity would have a hard time remembering where their street and booth started. So you will enjoy more if you let the hustle and bustle of the busy streets take you on a unique journey. Instead of relying on signs to get you from place to place, seek help from guides or maybe even use the knowledge of friendly locals.
5: Choose a peaceful place to live
Marrakech is a city that’s always on the move, like London or New York for example. However, those of us who come from cold climates may find it difficult to relax in the scorching heat associated with Morocco, especially in the summer. It is advisable to find a quiet place to stay that will take you away from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Marrakesh so that you have the perfect place to reflect on your day and recover your strength for the next. Try to choose an accommodation that presents itself as quiet, peaceful and away from the busy streets.
