After a few years of living in Spain, I finally made it to Morocco for a long weekend! I took a trip with some friends from my MBA program and had an amazing time. Our main base was Marrakech for the weekend but we were able to take a long day trip to Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate as well.

Here’s my Marrakech Photo Diary!

Getting Around

Transport Within

Taxis are a great way to get around, but be sure they use the meter. You can also try to bargain before getting in if you know exactly how much it should be to get from one place to another.

Getting Out of the City

If you’re heading to another city, there are trains and local buses going from the main station. You can also hire a driver for a bit more to save on time and fuss.


Extra Tips

Money: Dirams but Euros are accepted in most places. It’s a good idea to keep small, local currency on you for the souks and exact change.

Language: Arabic & French

Good Eats: Nomad | Riad El Fenn

Warning: Marrakech is notorious for pickpockets and scams! Beware of your belongings and getting distracted by noises and people touching your hands. You may end up paying a lot of money for a henna tattoo or bracelet that you didn’t expect to buy.
