There’s plenty to do if you're staying in and around Marrakesh. First, discover the city’s famous souks (markets). They’re filled with colourful babouche slippers and joining a three hour workshop gives you the chance to cut, hammer and sew your own pair. As sun sets, the town square, Jemaa el Fna, comes to life with street performers and food stallholders. Escape the city and hop on a camel for a lunchtime trek with a view of the Agafay Desert. Just 45 minutes from Marrakesh, but a world away, the stone desert is dotted by palm trees and the majestic Atlas Mountains hover in the background.
