Personal highlights

  1. Medina: old town center of Marrakesh, surrounded by large stone walls
  2. Souk: crafts market in the old town center, mostly cultivated for the tourists 
  3. Berber: hard working craftsmen, creating amazing tools and decoration by hand
  4. Guide: everybody wants to show you around and earn an extra dime in tourism
  5. Safety: the Medina of Marrakesh is extremely safe for travelers - even at night!
