Marrakech 1. Tourists should keep in mind that during the Ramadan being a holy month in Marrakesh alcohol is strictly forbidden even for the city guests. Spirits are not sold during this period in local shops as well as gastronomy destinations get deprived of any alcohol at all. Many state institutions and stores can keep to the shortened working schedule or may be completely closed.
2. Local drivers as well as pedestrians do not keep to the road traffic rules eagerly. Travelling by car one should be at the extreme of the attention as local folks can cross the road in any convenient place. Pedestrians in their turn should be attentive as well and strictly keep to the sidewalks.
3. Purchases should be paid only in national currency as any other currencies will not be accepted by merchants. The currency can be exchanged in local banks or private currency exchange offices meanwhile using individual services is banned by law.
4. Setting off to the market one should have enough change as high-denomination note may be a trigger to put up a price for a merchant and a buyer thus is challenged not to get the rest.
5. One of the worst challenges of Marrakesh is pickpockets that is why one should be extremely watchful and keep track of personal things. One should not keep documents and substantial sums of cash by oneself without urgent need. Plenty of jewelry and gems on will as well attract the pickpockets. Copyright
6. The best time for shopping is weekdays as weekends features extreme skyrocketing of the prices. Markets and private shops welcome bargaining that will help sufficiently reduce the price.

8. Tourists should avoid tap water consuming. The water should better be bought in one of the grocery stores in plastic bottles. One should be watchful as well with refreshing drinks and cocktails as these may be blended with tap water too.

What to visit being in Marrakech - unique sights

Medina of Marrakesh

From the series “The Unesco World Heritage Sites in Africa”
The central square of Medina is Djemaa el Fna, life on which does not freeze literally for a minute. This is the largest place in Africa.
