Eat and drink your way through Marrakech
One of the best ways to discover a new destination is just through the food – and who better to do it with than your partner? Marrakech isn’t short of amazing places to eat and drink, with a superb array of both traditional and fusion restaurants with dishes to get your taste buds tingling.
As you walk around you’ll spot restaurant signs and menus tempting you in, and the good thing about the architecture in Morocco is that all buildings have flat roofs – meaning they’re perfect for rooftop bars! There’s an abundance of rooftop cafes overlooking Jemaa el Fnaa square, so you can treat yourselves to delicious food and drink – with a view. It’s the perfect people-watching spot! Make sure to try the delicious mint tea on offer, and if you want to try some of the local dishes, then a tasty tagine or the couscous is a great way to sample some flavour.
As an added note, alcohol is forbidden outside of bars in Marrakech, with it being an Islamic city. Some bars and restaurants won’t serve alcohol at all, so make sure to ask before you sit down if you’re fancying a tipple. Although, it may surprise you that there is a modern nightlife scene with everything from traditional street performers to cabaret acts in booming nightclubs.
Visit the Blue House
Jardin Majorelle, known to tourists as ‘the Blue House of Marrakech’ is one of the biggest attractions in the region and an absolute must-see! The deep-blue shade of the house has become synonymous with Morocco itself, and was invented by the original owner of the house and gardens, Jaques Majorelle, who aptly named the colour ‘Majorelle Blue’.
If you want to feel like you’ve stepped foot into a tropical oasis, then this is definitely the place to go – not only will you feel like you’re in divine surroundings, but you’ll leave with some seriously insta-worthy pics, too. The gardens boast gorgeous green plants from all over the world, and stand out in contrast to the bright blues and yellows of the house. For a new profile pic to stand out from the crowd, this house is the perfect backdrop!
