Ever dreamt of seeing the
land of God? Then, start preparing for your Marrakech travel adventures
because this medieval-looking place is not only the second largest city
but is also the commercial hub of the Kingdom of Morocco.
Deriving its name from the
Tamazight word "Mur akuch," Marrakech literally means the "land of God."
But in going beyond this simple etymology, your Marrakech travel will also
prove that this Moroccan city is undoubtedly a place where a deity truly
The many stunning sights,
the rich culture, and the creative and useful crafts are just some of the
grandest things to claim that Marrakech is indeed, a city blessed by the
Knowing that this imperial
city will allow you to see the wonderful creations of the Almighty, you'll
surely want to make the most out of your Marrakech travel. Don't miss a
single blessing by planning ahead for this divine experience of a lifetime.
So dear mortals, brace yourselves for a glorious Marrakech vacation because
here are some of the things you have to bear in mind:
Weather is one of the most
important things to consider in arranging a Marrakech travel. While traveling
is unquestionably an outdoor activity, you can't tell for sure when the
Supreme Being will let His place experience some shower. So when preparing
for your Marrakech tour, you also have to deal with matters concerning
the physical environment, that is, if you don't want to take souvenir photographs
in a rainy setting. Go ahead - heed the warning signs. Know the temperature
and humidity for the day through on-line Marrakech weather guides or TV
2. Be informed about
the Marrakech transportation.
Traveling by foot won't make
your Marrakech travel as exhilarating as expected. So, might as well take
a ride and enjoy your journey in and around the city. Tourist attractions
in Marrakech are not located in a single area, which means you definitely
have to look for a faster and more convenient way to reach your destination.
When going to Northern Morocco, the train is one of the cheapest and fastest
modes of transportation. You can find the train station in Marrakech at
Hassan II Avenue and go on trips to equally splendid cities of Fez, Rabat,
Tangier, and Casablanca. Aside from the train system, there are also buses
called the CTM couches to take you anywhere you want to go.
3. Familiarize yourself
with the banking system and the currency of Marrakech.
You may claim that the best
things in life are free. But still, you need to get in touch with the reality
of spending money to enjoy your Marrakech travel at its best.
You have to check out the
exchange rate in Morocco through online currency converters and know where
the banks are located so you will not have a hard time withdrawing for
additional money. Banks with ATM services are usually found along the Rue
Moulay Ismail Street.
4. Try to learn the basics
of the Marrakech language.
Knowing by heart some Arabic
words can help you enjoy your Marrakech travel more. Arabic is the official
Moroccan language, and it will be easy for you to communicate with people
in Marrakech if you know how to express yourself through their language.
Aside from this, people in Marrakech also find tourists who try to speak
their language not only friendly but also very respectful.
5. Do a little research
about the popular crafts in Marrakech.
Marrakech is a shopping paradise
filled with many wonderful crafts. So please, don't end your Marrakech
travel without getting some of these souvenir items.
