MARRAKESH’S BEST starts with a TRIP ESSENTIALS section with plenty of trip planning guidance and all the basic city information you’ll need.
This is followed by an overview of key NEIGHBOURHOODS which will help you decide where to stay and will orientate you as you explore.
A hand-crafted ITINERARIES section then offers first-timers a good way to start exploring, as well as recommending a few TOURS.
But if, say, you’re particularly interested in HISTORY or ART, you might just dive straight into one of these dedicated themed sections within INTERESTS & ACTIVITIES. Others here include THE CITY WALLS; MOSQUES; AND PARKS & GARDENS.
Finally the app details many great places to EAT & DRINK in a wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars near many key sights. There’s a NIGHTCLUB section for after dark too, as well as a run down of SHOPS & SHOPPING to help you find that perfect souvenir.
