Djemaa el Fna square one of the most pulsating spaces on planet Earth. Snake charmers, spice sellers, everything colourful you'd expect in Morocco. Night-time food stalls. The Souks remarkable maze of market stalls. You might as well hire a shopping guide. They're mostly helpful but beware their cousins shops you'll be taken to. But fine for general guidance and knowing where you are ! Berber medicine shop. Moroccan carpets explained. The amazing sounds of the metal souk and also leather, woodworking, jewellery etc. Best hotel in town the Mamounia. Beautiful architectural style part Art Deco, part Arabic. Great things to see one of Islam's great mosques. Early royal tombs, elegant water gardens all quite magnificent. Marrakech began as an oasis city. Also interesting trips to villages of the Atlas mountains. Mamounia was a favourite of Winston Churchill around World War II. Churchill brought President Franklin Roosevelt here. Amazing list of celebrities has stayed there.
