6 Reasons to Visit Marrakech

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Marrakech is gaining in popularity for many good reasons. Here are just six of them.

1)       Just a three hour flight from UK with British Airways (started March 2011), Easyjet, Ryanair, Royal Air Maroc, Atlas Blue, Air France, Alitalia, KLM, Lufthansa and Swiss Airlines. An increase in weekly flights from 39 to 100 a week has followed a major upgrade for Marrakech airport to provide much improved facilities for the larger numbers of arrivals.

2)       Your money goes further! The cost of living in terms of everyday items is significantly lower in Morocco than it is in Europe, not least as far as food, handicrafts and souvenirs are concerned. Of all short haul sun destinations available to Europeans Marrakech is one of the shrewdest choices.

Marrakech events – what’s happening in early 2011?

Friday, February 18th, 2011

February – The Dakka Marrakchia Festival is a unique musical event held every February in honour of Sabaatou Rijal, the spiritual patrons of the city. For this sacred music festival in Marrakech, think polyrhythmic percussion blended with choral chants.

Expect plenty of colour and an authentic, traditional Marrakech flavour. Soak up a bit of Moroccan musical culture - unmissable!

March – Another festival that is literally magic is the Marrakech Magic Festival (19th – 22nd March 2011). Spell binding performances from international illusionists and magicians take place at the Royal Theatre supplemented by free street performances throughout the city.

March is a lovely time to visit Marrakesh with temperatures rising and flowers, especially roses and bougainvillea, at their best.  The city is full of magic on a normal day so expect to have the time of your life during the Magic Festival!
