Marrakech personifies the unusual. A place where the historic city meets the modern world, with equal amounts of French and Arabic spoken. There are a plethora of memorable activities to do in Marrakech that will make your holiday one to remember. And here are some of the best things to do in Marrakech to help you make the most of your vacation.

  1. Become disoriented in the Medina

One of the most intriguing things to do in Marrakech is to visit the Medina. The old part of the city, encircled by stone walls and teeming with activity, is known as a Medina. This Medina at Night tour is a terrific way to experience the city’s liveliness in a safe setting. The ideal time to visit Jemaa el Fna is at night, when the food booths are lit up and residents come out to shop. Your guided tour will provide insights into the city’s history, culture, and traditions, as well as a good overview of the city.


We couldn’t wait to get lost in the Medina and explore the old city. We stayed in a Riad in the Medina and had the opportunity to spend a lot of time in this old walled area of Marrakech. You’ll find a tangle of lanes and stalls in the Medina that sell everything from carpets and lamps to mint tea and fresh dates. Forget about the modern world and go within.

  1. Take in the view of the sun setting over Djemaa El-Fnaa.

If you ask a Marrakech local what to do, they’ll probably tell you to start at the main square, Jemaa el-Fnaa. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a large square packed with food booths. Take a seat at one of the rooftop bars and enjoy the sunset. Rooftops around the square have a minimum cover charge, but it is little and well worth it.

You may enjoy the view and watch the chaos from a tranquil vantage point above for the price of a beer. After that, you must go shopping for meals and tea in the stalls. It is a sensory overload, and Moroccan cuisine is to die for.


  1. Do some shopping in the souks

Marrakech’s Souks are merely another name for a marketplace. Many souks can be found within the Medina’s walls, which are located just off Marrakech’s main square. It is here that you will truly feel as if you have entered authentic Moroccan territory. It’s easy to get lost in the maze of covered markets that wind their way down narrow lanes. There are shops and kiosks selling everything under the sun throughout the labyrinth.
