Marrakesh is a captivating city set against the backdrop of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains, where Saharan caravans once passed. Few cities evoke as much with just their name: the Pearl of the South. Founded in 1062 by Yussef Idn Tashfin, Marrakesh is a fantastic representation of the new Morocco. The fabled walled Medina, a maze of narrow alleyways filled with spices and haggling carpet traders, is of stark contrast to the modern tree-lined boulevards of the new city. The greatest attraction of Marrakesh is drinking mint tea with the locals in a street side café, shopping for designer labels or losing yourself in the legendary souks and stepping back centuries. The choice is yours.
