    Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path

    A really happy time was had by all our family when we travelled to the desert. We were dealing with Adil, a friendly agent who provided us with plenty of information. The Sahara was great ! The camels were really friendly too.

    Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path

    The Palmeraie de Marrakech is a forest with more than 100.000 palm trees next to the city. It's coming from the Almoravides Dinasty, in the 11th Century. The legend says that the soldiers, waiting to enter into the city, spitted the bones of the dates they were eating at the moment, and them all these palm trees grew. Currently it's a luxury...

    Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path

    A walkabout in Marrakesh is best enjoyed in the relative sanctuary of the Medina streets, avoiding the traffic chaos of the Gueliz boulevards. The main attraction is the Djemma el Fna square coming alive after sunset with its famous al fresco food stalls, during the day the entertainment continues with performances by acrobats, monkey handlers and...

    Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path

    Here are some more pictures of people at work. The woodworker; the van, which by the way I believe is made in Harbin, China where my son lives; and the restauranteur. The last picture was taken just across the street from the entrance to our riad. There was a few chairs and a counter behind her, but I think she mainly did carry out. Very different...

    Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path

    Hate the souks; the noise, the bartering and the hostile environment? Well, the answer is to head for the Jewish Quarter. The prices are at least half what they are in the souks and the souk merchants buy their goods from the Jews in the Jewish Quarter. Voila, cut out the middle man. Some treasures to be found in this area are: black hammam soups...

  • Royal Palace

    Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path

    The Royal Palace, also know as Dar el-Makhzen Palace, was next to our Riad, in the Kasba. It's not open to the public, because it remains to be for private use of the Royal Family. In fact, the King Mohamed VI has palaces al over Morocco for his frequents trips to visit his country. Be careful as well with the picture you're taking, because it's...

    Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path

    The trip to Marrakesh from Agadir takes over 4 hours, and the scenes of mountains and small villages top of them are interesting. If you are driving to Marrakesh, you'd better take a 15 minute break, and you can stop at some gas station on the road where there is usualy a restaurant attached to it. The first pic is of the car we rent and road, and...
