1. Marrakech[SEE MAP]
Marrakech is one of Morocco’s four Imperial Cities and has long been a major trading hub. Its focus on trade has shaped the city and its position is crucial to the import of goods into the country.
Some notable landmarks in Marrakech include the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque and the lavish 19th century Bahia Palace.
The city is bustling and chaotic, with the Jemaa el-Fnaa market in the medina being a crowded and vibrant place to shop for a variety of goods.
Bartering is common in the market and traders will often call out to customers to try to entice them. As night falls, the market transforms into a bustling hub of food stalls. Despite the already vibrant atmosphere, the city becomes even more lively and energetic in the evening.
