If you're planning a Moroccan holiday, let ebookers help you find international or domestic flights to Marrakech. The website searches various flight options to find you an air ticket that fits your budget. Marrakech, the capital of the Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz region, is home to the largest Berber market and one of the busiest town squares in Africa. Travellers will find a lively city where they can enjoy haggling with street vendors, sampling local cuisine and relaxing at a day spa.
The Marrakech Menara Airport is located approximately 5 miles from the centre of Marrakech. The international airport serves over three million passengers each year and has two passenger terminals. Numerous airlines service the airport, including Air France, British Airways, Thomson Airways and Lufthansa.
Buses and taxicabs provide transportation from the airport into the city. Cab fare costs approximately 176 Moroccan dirhams. Public bus number 11 runs from the airport to the central square of the old city every 20 to 30 minutes. If you'd rather have your own transportation, you can use ebookers to reserve a rental car.
Marrakech has mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers. Average winter temperatures range from 5Â°C to 19Â°C. If you travel during the winter months, pack clothes that you can layer and a jacket. The wet season runs from November through March, but the city doesn't get as much rain as other Mediterranean cities. The summer months can get extremely hot. Average summer temperatures range from 16Â°C to 37Â°C. If you want to avoid the heat and the rain, the best time to visit Marrakech is in May or October. During these months, the average temperature ranges from 13Â°C to 27Â°C, and there isn't a lot of precipitation.
One of the best ways to mingle with local people is to spend the day browsing the stalls at the souks. You'll find everything from babouches to cooked snails in the maze of markets just north of Jemaa El Fna square. Take some time to visit Jemaa El Fna at night. The square comes alive with fortune tellers, Gnaoua drummers, musicians, storytellers and dancers. If you want to experience life as a Sultan, visit Bahia Palace. Built by Sultan Ahmed El-Mansour, the impressive building features walls encrusted with gold, an inner court with a huge swimming pool and four pavilions that were flanked with pools and fountains. If you're looking for a peaceful spot, visit Jardin Majorelle. The subtropical garden was designed by painter Jacques Majorelle and features palm trees, cacti and breathtaking water scenery. When you're ready to relax, visit Les Bains de Marrakech to indulge in various spa treatments. Other popular attractions include the Saadian Tombs, MusÃ©e de Marrakech, Jardin Menara and the Koutoubia Mosque.
The animated street markets, rich cultural attractions, day spas and local cuisine make Marrakech a great holiday destination. The ebookers website makes planning your Moroccan holiday easy.
