Travels Through Morocco - Marrakesh, Part Two

in #travel3 years ago

The aromas, the sounds, the sights. Marrakesh is guaranteed make your head spin.

One of the main attractions of Marrakesh is Jemaa el-Fna Square, situated in the heart of Marrakesh's medina. During the day, this imposing and brilliant area is full of people as far as the eye can see. The square is totally filled with fruit sellers, performers, animals, snake charmers, public speakers, spice stands, merchants, and so much more I can't even begin to describe it.

As the day draws to the a close and night draws near, the snake charmers and animal performers slowly depart and the dancers, acrobats, musicians and food stalls begin to slowly appear. Close to a hundred food stalls at any given time are open to tourists and locals alike, with chefs shouting at you from all directions demanding that you eat at their place. The square suddenly becomes a hazy mist of noise and scents that you simply can't ignore as you trawl from food tent to food tent in the hope of securing a decent meal.

As evening time ends and the families turn in for the night, the music blares louder and louder, with hordes of people beginning to form around the music. Massive crowds of people are simply dancing, singing and having an amazing time. This is why Marrakesh was my favourite city in Morocco. The festivities went on until the early hours of the morning. No alcohol was to be seen, and I didn't feel unsafe. All there was was lots of dancing, laughter, stories told and pure merriment.

And this all starts again at the crack of dawn. I love Marrakesh.

Lovely, I am from Casablanca and I have simply not gone enough times to Marrakesh. You should try the night life too! Probably the best in all Africa!

I haven't tried the nightlife yet, all I know is the square! I heard there are clubs there, but is alcohol allowed?? Omg Casablanca I wanna visit! How is it like to live there? @projenix

Hey it's a really nice city i have been twice!

It really is!

Marrakech is so lovely, I've visited there a couple of years ago too, the only thing is that we went in January so it was very cold, even inside the houses. We loved the square thou, had some yummy escargots there :)
Hope you have a great time there!

I can imagine January is cold. Especially when its raining, it can really drop the temperature down! Glad you enjoyed your trip there, and thanks so much Peter :)

Great post!! Keep it up👌👍
