destination of the week

Every Week we are going to select a different destination and going to have special offers for that particular destination. This Week is - Marrakech Situated at the foot of the Atlas mountains, the imperial city of Marrakech is fascinating, full of history and culture. When on holiday in Marrakech, it is easy to believe you've been transported back in time. The dusky, pink-walled Medina, the 'old city', is where everything seems to happen. It boasts a many chic lodgings and the multitude of shops and souks will keep shopaholics busy for days. Even non-shoppers will be amazed by the colour, diversity and vibrancy. This is the place to which tourists are drawn again and again to soak up the carnival-like environment. One of the ways to absorb the sights and sounds when on holiday in Marrakech is to hire a horse-drawn carriage. It is also a good idea to take in the Medina's souks on foot, walking through the hurly burly maelstrom of alleys where tradesmen ply various crafts, from cloth dying and leather working to perfumers and carpet makers. Visitors often disappear down a maze of winding alleys and emerge days later, relaxed and refreshed from their holidays in Marrakech.
