Brace Yourself for the Divine Experience of Marrakech Travel   by Rcon Franchesca Pascua

Featured Marrakech Hotels

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 exists. 

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 Supreme Being.

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:

1. Check out the Marrakech weather update.

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 news updates.

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.

These simple preparations can promise you an exciting Marrakech travel, so you can simply relax and completely enjoy this Moroccan land of God.
