Trip to Marrakesh flying British Airways, Iberia & Royal Air Maroc Business Class
Last week, I was in Marrakech, Morocco for the first time where I stayed for four nights. During my stay, I was able to stay in a Moroccan riad (a local hotel with a courtyard) and enjoyed drinking mint tea every morning. I was also able to visit some tourist attractions including the famous Jame el F´na, Bahia Palace and Saadien´s Tombs. In case you are traveling to Marrakech, here are some of my travel tips.

Video from my YouTube Channel 📺

Jama el f´na: This is definitely one of the most famous, chaotic squares/markets in the world with all it´s fresh fruit/juice sellers, snake charmers and entertainers 😍

Bahia Palace: Main courtyard

Bahia Palace

Bahia Palace: I love the beautiful design of the ceiling made of wood and of course the mosaic tiles. Entrance fee is 70 MAD.

Place des Ferblantiers: This lovely square with palm trees is near the Bahia Palace.

Saadien´s Tombs: The line to see the tombs can be long so make sure you plan your visit well. Entrance fee is 70 MAD.

Exploring all kinds of souks 😍

A tour in the Old Medina where you´ll find a foundouk like the one above ...

... as well as a Hammam (spa) 😉

... and a mausoleum.

Koutoubia Mosque: This is the largest mosque in Marrakech

Koutoubia Garden

Almoravid Koubba: A small monument dating back from the 12th century.

Bab Agnaou: The main brick gate is being restored so the photo above is a small gate behind the main one.

The Royal Palace: Visitors are not allowed to enter so admiring it from the outside is the most you can do 😉

Kasbah Mosque: Also knowns as Moulay El Yazid Mosque, it is a Friday mosque very popular just like the Koutoubia Mosque.

Enjoying the local food: This one is a beef tagine and it was excellent 😋
