The famous garden by Yves Saint Laurent. It’s a beautiful botanical garden with great spots for Instagram worthy photos. A must do!
This mosque is not open to the public except you’re Muslim to preserve the Sanctity of the mosque. It’s a very old mosque with the old red dye used for the walls as can be found in the entire Medina of Marrakech.
Bahia Palace is the former home of the regent of Morocco and his wives and concubines. It boasts of beautiful Moroccan architecture and finishes and details that will leave you in awe of the artistry and craftsmanship of the Moroccan people.
Tried our first tagine here with different side olive salads, soups and lentils. Mind you foods that should be hot are cold like the lentils and soups. I recommend the tagine Marrakech it’s cooked for 12-16hours so by the time it’s served the meat is tender and spiced very well.
It’s a cooperative run by women where they make Argan oils, mint teas and black soaps. You get to see the process of making the oils as well learn about the benefits. Besides who doesn’t like supporting women run businesses? #GirlPower
The souk is a mix of different things from shops with things like authentic pashminas to henna art to snake charmers and monkeys and lots of food stalls. It’s a good way to while away time and buy stuff for family friends to take home. You can enter the souk a bunch of times and find new gems every time. Just remember to haggle as most items are overpriced for tourists.
A beautiful Waterfall about 2 hours away from Marrakech. It’s a hike down to the waterfalls and a boat ride to get close to the falls to get the feel of it. Afterwards we hike back up get lunch from the mountain restaurants with views of the water.

Fez is the oldest city in Morocco and a UNESCO preservation site. It houses one of the oldest souks and narrowest streets in the world. Known for its craft making ranging from pottery, to tannery to metal works, and fabric looming. It’s the perfect place to learn about how all the beautiful items we purchase are made.
The blue city has been on my bucket list for forever. To experience it gave me a sense of calm generally attributed to the color blue. Lots of points to take beautiful pictures and the craftsmanship of their doors was a huge draw to me. I highly recommend everyone visit even if it’s for a day trip. Totally worth it!
