A sneak peek into Marrakech:

Hey guys, as you might know I’ve recently returned from a budget travel trip to Morocco where I spent most of my time in Marrakech. I’m currently working on a detailed written post for you all about the nitty-gritty and some practical advice backpackers will need to know about backpacking Marrakech. However, I thought I would give you a Marrakech picture gallery before hand to give you more a visual stimulant.

The Medina.

Marrakesh’s main appeal is within the walled city in the Medina. This is where all the real action is, Within the walls of the medina you will find the famous souks, food stalls, traditional businesses, and of course the heart beat of the medina;the main square.

Jemaa El-Fna (Main square in the Medina)

Jemma El-Fna is the busiest square in Africa, this is where all the craziness happens. – Vendors, street merchants, henna artists, musicians, story tellers, hawkers, snake charmers, monkeys and so much more. (I will explain more about the square and it’s happenings in my post about Marrakech.)

  1. Great photos! I actually jumped a little bit at the cobra, were you scared it was going to bite you? Trying to go to Morocco in May and this is only convincing me more!

  2. A fantastic collection and I love that you included the video because having audio really brings life to it all. I think seeing a real life snake charmer is something I’d love to see, yet be terrified at the same time, I think that’s why it is so mesmerizing, fear and awe at the same time. It seems like a place that is the epitome of hustle and bustle!

  3. My husband loves snakes so I would probably find him playing with the cobras and snake charmers. Beautiful gallery on a destination I would love to get to one day. Definitely looks like an assault on the senses. in a good way.

  4. This takes me back to my time in Morocco, honestly still one of my favorite trips of all time! I especially love the video capturing all the hustle and bustle. I dream of going back one day! I had no idea that the Jenna El-Fna is the busiest square in all of Africa! That’s nuts!

  5. Wow, this are some pretty cool shots – especially of that king cobra!! I am headed to Morocco in 4 days and Marrakesh is our first stop. All of your pictures are definitely getting me in the right mindset for the trip. It looks like total madness in those markets! I’m looking forward to reading your more detailed post about Morocco next!

  6. What a stunning gallery! I’m hoping to be in Marrakech this year and this gave me so much inspiration. I will NOT be getting that close to the cobras! Woah! I can’t wait to explore the markets though!

  7. Great Photo’s! and I loved the video of the market. We took one too in India because no one can really imagine the chaos unless you video it! I would love to shop at those markets I love the lamps they make and the doors that they carve are so unique. Morocco is on my list so hopefully one day soon we will get there.

  8. Aw Amit, I hope you had a good new year break in Marrakech! I remember those snakes well in the market square, but I kept more of a distance! Did you manage to visit anywhere else like Essaouira? Looking forward to reading your travel stories in 2018!

  9. The medina looks a lot like old Dubai, with the souks, the food stalls, etc. I also love the Arabic architecture, and the colourful accessories being sold in the souks. Not sure I’d place Morocco at the top of my list because it seems quite similar to certain parts of the UAE but it surely is an interesting place to visit. Did you go outside Marrakech Amit? Any other cities? I’ve heard so much about Fes.

  10. You have so many wonderful pictures from Morocco here! My husband and I wanted to go there last year, but our plans fell through. I’m hoping to go to Marrakesh sometimes in the near future. I’m going to share these photos with my husband, so I’m glad I came across your post.

  11. Ah, you get a real sense of the vibrant bustle and chaos of Morocco here, and also its gentle side with the mellow tiled buildings beyond the thrum of city life. You’ve reminded me how much I loved the tiles. Beautiful pics, and I now have the benefit of a rather good earworm of Marrakesh Express; it’s been a long time since I’ve heard that!

  12. Great photos! Morocco is my favorite country, it is so diverse and it is the perfect combination between traditional and modern. Medinas all around the coutry are amazing

  13. Great photos from the red city of Marrakech. one of top 10 world destinations according to trip advisor 2017. Wish you had great memories from your Morocco trip.

  14. Hello ?
    You Marrakesh pics are so cool – I really liked this city to. There is so much to see and to – a real adventure!
    The best is the viewpoint from the Jemma El-Fna – sitting there and watch this spectale was unbeatable
    Have a nice day and safe travels,
    Martina

  15. You brought a lot of great memories back from my trip there a few years ago, and I see a lot of the city has not changed at all. Looking forward to reading the entire post
