For variety during your tour of Morocco, head to Marrakech, Jamaa el Fna square

A tour of Morocco offers travelers the chance to experience sights and sounds they won't find anywhere else. The North African hotspot is rich in cultural tradition, and its desert landscape provides unique adventure travel opportunities. There are a number of cities that you should include in your itinerary, and Marrakech is certainly among them. The fourth-largest city in the country, Marrakech has something to offer everyone, whether you're looking to explore Morocco's famous street markets or experience its burgeoning nightlife. 

If you're looking for something to do during the day in Marrakech, the Majorelle Garden is your best bet. This impressive garden was designed by world famous French painter Jacques Majorelle and first opened its doors to the public in 1947. The sprawling landscape is well-known for being home to numerous cacti and bougainvillea flowers, along with more than a dozen species of bird that are native to North Africa. The garden is also beautifully designed to include fountains and picturesque walkways. Before you leave, make sure to visit the Museum of Islamic Art that is located on site.

While the Majorelle Garden offers a brief respite from the busy city streets, you'll want to get out and experience all Marrakech has to offer once the sun sets. There are a number of places you can visit, but Jamaa el Fna square stands above the rest. A major tourist hub, the square is home to everything from food vendors to snake charmers and entertainers. The square tends to become more active as the night wares on and will offer a glimpse into one of the most popular destinations in Morocco.
