How about a honeymoon in Africa?
Marrakech is an amazing place. Full of colour and noise. The Souks (markets) are fantastic....... but be prepared to sit and haggle with the friendly shop owner. Marrakech has the largest traditional Berber market.
In the evening the Medina is an absolute must. Stalls are everywhere and locals and tourists alike rub shoulders at the many many food tables.You just have to jump in and absorb yourself, trust me its fun.
So you have arrived and immersed yourself into the sights, smells and mayhem that is the Medina in central Marrakech. You´ve managed to navigate yourself this far among the hordes of people on foot, scooters and bikes darting in and around the traffic, taxis and other chaotic drivers honking horns and barely missing each other. Now you have to locate your accommodation. This, if you are staying in a Riad will take you down a honeycomb of intricately connected alleyways. Walled either side with only doors and very non de-script doors too. It will be one of these non de-script doors that is your hotel. You have arrived and when the door is opened you’re ushered into absolute peace and tranquillity.
Riad meaning garden in Arabic, it is a traditional Moroccan multi-story house with an interior garden or courtyard. Usually three to four stories high, each room opens onto the central open space of the riad. Most Riads have three to six rooms, although bigger ones can be found, and most are available on a nightly basis.
My best mate and I have been twice and stayed HERE.
