The mad circus of Marrakech’s Djemaa el Fna square, packed with incense, salesmen, and snake charmers, is so bizarre and entertaining you’ll be looking for the hidden camera. Whatever your ‘thing’ is, Morocco will provide.

Try your hand in the maze-like medinas (bazaars), bargaining for fabrics, leathers, hand painted pottery, carpets, home decor and much more.

Your taste buds are in for an adventure of their own as you try the rich tagines, various vegetable salads and stews, fresh and dried fruits, syrupy sweets and mint teas.
