Well, 2016 is almost over and it’s time to recap another 12 awesome months of travel. It was also my first full year of blogging as Travel Lexx and I’ve had an absolute blast along the way!
So, here are my highlights of 2016!
Here is a list of some of the best things to see and do on your visit to the Moroccan capital. Let me know if I have missed anything out in my list of Marrakech sights in the comments!
Wandering around in the Marrakech souqs is an essential Moroccan experience, so put away your map and dive in.
We heard it before we saw it, the rumbling sound of the waterfall just underneath us. We followed the path and soon got our first glimpse of the cascades in all their glory, carefully peering over the edge into the valley, watching the water plummeting into the river below.
There is no shortage of places to eat and drink in the Marrakech medina. From curb-side stalls selling bread and orange juice to open air restaurants serving the finest Moroccan food to upmarket cocktail bars, Marrakech medina has options for all tastes and budgets.
Much like Morocco itself, its cuisine combines traditional elements with outside influences which reflect the nation’s rich history. The indigenous Berber fare combines with flavours from Southern Europe and the Middle East to create a unique and tasty cuisine. While often imitated around the world, there is nothing like sampling its offerings among the locals, pulling up a pew at the lively Djemaa el-Fna square or grabbing a treat from a street stall.
