Top 3 Things to do in Marrakech

If you’re thinking of taking a holiday to the Middle East, one of the locations that comes highly recommended is the city of Marrakech. This lovely city is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination for people all over the world. Located in the North West of Morocco, this major city has lots on offer for every one of all ages and boasts amazing weather with a vibrant and friendly atmosphere. This article will showcase just a small snapshot of what activities you can get up to in this great region of Egypt.

Hot Air Balloon

There’s no better way to see the city of Marrakech than from the air in a hot air balloon. Granted, you may need a touch of bravery for this activity; however, once you’re up in the air, the view is simply incredible. You can view the tops of the buildings and desert surroundings from a bird’s eye view and watch the sunsets from a spectacular height. The ride is approximately 1 hour long and gives you an experience you’ll never forget.

Traditional Moroccan Cooking

If you enjoy cooking or if you’re curious how Moroccan food is cooked, you can take part in a small cooking class that lasts 2-3 hours and involves you cooking a starter, main course and a desert, all in a Moroccan style! You’ll be taught by experienced chefs and you’ll learn new techniques that you could use when your back home from your holiday. Get to know all new ingredients and spices whilst meeting new people. Don’t worry if you’re not the best cook, the chefs are very patient and they understand not everyone is Gordon Ramsey!

Quad Biking

This is a great activity to do if you enjoy going fast or like extreme sports. With safety gear included, quad biking is a thrilling experience but doesn’t give you any of the spills! You’ll be led by a tour leader who will set the pace up front and keep everyone together in a convoy. Take part in small races or just simply go along for fun, quad biking is well worth a look at if you’re in Marrakech. This is perfect for family days out.

With all these activities and more, you’ll never run out of fun things to do in this amazing city. Just remember to take your camera, especially if you end up going hot air ballooning!
