Marrakech

The '?Red City'? as known to many, Marrakech in Morocco is a former imperial city that holds great significance to the country's history. Marrakech is reachable by plane or by train for those coming from nearby cities. The city is split into distinct parts, the historical district of Medina and the modern district of Gueliz. Medina teems with characteristic local shops on intertwining alleys while Gueliz holds place modern restaurants and high end stores. Visitors may get around these two characteristic districts through cheap car hire at Marrakech.

Marrakech has several interesting landmarks that visitors should not miss. First stop on a car hire at Marrakech is the Djemaa El-Fna at Medina, a bustling plaza square and highlight of the lively district. Musicians, performers, and other acts would thrive in the square especially during the night to bring lively shows. All around are stalls and shacks offering local Moroccan fare. Snake charmers and monkey tamers also offer interesting shows.

Just beside the square is the landmark Koutoubia Mosque which is considered as the Eiffel Tower of Marrakech. This bold minaret is visible from the neighboring Gueliz, especially during the night when the mosque is lit with beautiful lights.

Visitors could also drive a car rental at Marrakech to the different souks (markets) where many different varieties of Moroccan goods and products could be bought. Spices are popular, so as shoes, tea pots, tagines, jalabas and kaftans. Bargaining with the local sellers would surely be a fun experience.

Lovers of history and art may visit the numerous galleries and museums around town, like the ones in the Majorelle Gardens and Rue Riad Zitoun Jdid.
