On our third and final day in Marrakech, my friends and I headed back to the square for a dose of last-minute shopping. As per usual, I had to cop a statuette to add to my souvenir collection, and I also wasn’t able to keep myself from the Moroccan munchies (dates in particular) and their traditional tea which was nothing short of being heaven in a cup. To top it all off, we then had some legit hammam massage and body scrub at Les Bains de Marrakech, and I’d easily say it was one of the highlights of the trip.
All in all, Marrakech is an amazing destination if you’re itching for something new, “exotic,” and different from the usual European or American sort of city. It surely is nothing close to London or New York, but hey, they’ve got camels. I personally think Marrakech has still a long way to go in terms of development and civilisation, but it’s definitely getting there. I don’t think the casts of “Sex and the City 2” and “Prince of Persia” would’ve been sent there to film for weeks if it wasn’t, right? Some of the locals can get quite rude and aggressive, but just don’t show them you’re intimidated and you’ll be alright. The food alone is enough of a reason for you to visit.
