A Visit To Marrakech
Hi all!! I had a visit recently to Marrakech in Morocco. I was so much fascinated by the trip that I thought of sharing my experience with all. One of my friends, John suggested me to visit Marrakech. I had never heard about the place. He told me all about the city. I booked a ticket for me and my wife. After reaching Marrakech, I was very fascinated by the beauty of this city. The scenic beauty of the museums, the awesome golf experience, the most fascinating water park, and lots of other exciting activities in Marrakech left us amazed and provided one of the best holiday - experience to us. It made me feel as if this place is next to heaven. Now I want to go back to the place and enjoy the life again. It refreshes your life.
As soon as we landed in Marrakech, we went to our hotel. After having our lunch from there we went to the museum called ‘Maison De la Photographie’. This is an awesome museum having photographs of Marrakech and Morocco. The information provided in here is in both French and English. This is a paradise for the lovers of the photography. The photos show the history of Marrakech and Morocco. The photographs in black and white are simply breathtaking. It gives you a WOW feeling. The ticket to the place is quite expensive as compared to other museums in the city but one can return to the museum any number of times with the same ticket. The best thing which one should not forget to visit is the roof café. This is a place worth visiting. The food here is just awesome and you can come back and enjoy it again and again. My wife loved the chicken and not to forget the fresh strawberries. Visit to this paradise was a unique experience for both of us. We had never experienced such a beautiful work of art earlier in our lives.
We came back to the room of our hotel after having a walk in the streets nearby. We were tired with the day’s journey; though our mind was happy with the sweet memories of the museum. So we had the traditional dinner and then slept. In the morning we decided to go to the ‘Ali Ben Youssef Medersa’. This is a beautiful Islamic architecture. It is an old school and is worth a visit in the city. This is a cool place at the heart of the Marrakech. The tiles used in this school are just amazing. It has a fabulous wood and plaster carvings. It was a wise decision to hire a guide. The place is not too big but there are so many stories to know about the place. The courtyard of the school has a marvelous water work in the middle. I feel the visit to this place is also not very expensive. One can even afford to visit the museum in the neighborhood. The cafeteria at the gate of the museum also has amazing food.
It was an awesome experience to visit this marvelous place. After spending a wonderful afternoon there, we headed towards the Medina of Marrakech. One can find a lot of history and fun here. You will get to know the culture of Morocco from here. We saw the snake charmers and the horse drawn carriages. This was for the first time I was seeing them in the modern era. All of it looked so amazing. It is very difficult to navigate through the place because the streets are very confusing. So we hired a guide. He had amazing knowledge of the place. He guided us through the streets and even told us some fascinating stories of the place. The place is filled with small shops and restaurants all over. The shopkeepers try to attract the customers to their shops. We bought some beautiful things from there. The air there is filled with the beautiful aroma of the food. We then had traditional food in a restaurant. The food there was just amazing and the service was excellent.
Next we decided to go to one of the greenest park in town called Arsat Moulay Abdeslam Cyber Park. This is the best place to relax, being away from the heat and noise of the city. The park is so quiet and calm it takes you so close to the nature. You enjoy each and every moment spent here. The greenery of the park refreshes your soul. One of the specialties of this park is the free WiFi facility available here. You will find people sitting everywhere with laptops, iPhones. Speed of the WiFi is very fast and the signal strength is also good. You get this amazing beauty of nature with most advanced internet facility when there is no entry fee for the park. There were lots of people here specially the local school children. One can easily lie down in sun or in the shade and spend his time.
Next we decided to go to the Oasiria water park. This is the first water park of Morocco and one of the best places to visit in the hot summer. When we reached there, the place was not crowded much. We were asked to keep the luggage in the locker room. It would be a wise decision to carry fewer things with you. We enjoyed so many rides and had a lot of fun. The tallest was the most amazing and thrilling. According to the staff there, it was as tall as a six story building. The staff of the park is very friendly and the management ensures safety of the guests there. There are lifeguards at every corner of the park. This park has free shuttle services for the guests. I forgot to mention the biggest attraction of the park. This is the wave pool. In this pool, waves come for 7 minutes in every 15 minutes. We took so many pictures from here as a memory. This was an amazing experience. I and my wife enjoyed it for the first time and were stunned with this. The food in this park is quite expensive. This park is quite large and we may have missed some beautiful sites because both of us chose to sun bathe on the beautiful green grass spread all over the park.
We did not have enough time left on this trip. So, we decided to have a quick glimpse on the Saddian tombs. This is also a small but a very beautiful place. It does not take long to visit this place. Entry to the place is also cheap. A narrow path leads to the tomb complex. The tomb complex is very beautiful and well maintained. We still had some time left so we managed to visit Kasbah Mosque next to it and Badii place which was also at a 5 min walking distance. Both the places were nicely built and exhibited superb architectures.
After the visit we came back to the hotel room and were packing to leave the hotel as we had a flight at the night. But we both were so much missing the place we decided to come back to Marrakech every year for holidays. This was the best place I had ever visited in my life. The culture of the country had so much influence on me. It won’t be wrong if I say that the days we spent in Marrakech were some of the best days of our lives…
