If you have a flight to Marrakech, you'll be landing in the Menara International Airport. You'll find a helpful tourist information desk, snack bars and restaurants, as well a duty-free shopping. There are taxis to take you to your hotel after your Marrakech flight lands, or you may choose to rent a car from Hertz, Avis, or Budget. There is also a currency exchange in the airport.
While you can rent a car in Marrakech, it isn't the recommended way to go. There are plenty of taxis, and as long as you settle on the price before you go, they are affordable. In the medina, traveling by foot is probably the most convenient. There are also small, horse-drawn carriages known as caleches. Bicycles are another popular mode of transportation. On your first day in Marrakech, you may wish to take the tour bus. You can ride it as many times as you like in a 24-hour period, although the runs tend to end early in the day.
You took a cheap flight to Marrakech, now take an air tour of the city with Marrakech by Air. Once you've landed, you can choose to take tours of the surrounding desert with Dunes and Desert Explorations. Or perhaps you'd rather relax at Spa MK. They offer full luxury spa treatments and other services. Consider taking cooking classes at L'atelier Faim d'Espices. They will actually pick you up from your hotel and bring you to their kitchens. If you don't want to miss anything, sign up for Medina Guided Tours. They'll show you everything interesting in the city and you can choose what you want to revisit later.
Shopping in Marrakech is unlike other tourist destinations. You must be prepared to bargain, drink tea, and socialize. There are many vendors in the open markets and they can be quite aggressive, but if you don't want their wares you can just smile, say no, and move on. When you're hungry, there are a number of restaurants in Marrakech. The Cafe de France is one of the most famous eateries and is not too expensive. Vegetarians and those with sensitive stomachs will enjoy Chez Chegrouni. Dar Moha is a Moroccan fusion restaurant and is highly recommended although a bit pricey. Music dominates the nightlife in Marrakech. You can dance in the discos or watch the belly dancers. Most of the nightlife will be in the medina, and even though this is a Muslim country, there are bars that stay open late. If you prefer something more formal, you may see a performance at the Theatre Royale. Book airfare to Marrakech today!
