The hotel scene in Marrakech caters for all budgets and requirements. Try the Riad El Fenn (2 Derb Moullay Abdullah Ben Hezzian) in the medina for understated glamour that entwines modern flavours with more traditional elements. The Angsana Riads Collection is more affordable, with six riads offering their own personality spread throughout the medina, including the lavish Riad Si Said and the Thai-themed Riad Bab Firdaus. Riad Itrane (113 Derb Jamaâ Derb Dabachi) is a centrally located choice for the lower budget, although there is a pool to relax in following a hectic day shopping the souks. Boutique hacienda JnaneTamsna (Douar Abiad) lies beyond the city walls, offering a luxurious bohemian setting away from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Prepare for an overload of the senses as you dive into the souks of the medina, which ought to be the first port of call on any shopping trip in Marrakech. The winding streets are punctuated by fragrant mounds of colourful spices that coerce the nose towards the many spice markets (Rahba Kedima). Head to craft co-operative Complexe d’Artisanat (7 Derb Baissi, Rue de la Kasbah) for interesting fabrics, furniture and ceramics, while at Dar El Bacha you'll find shops selling everything from passementerie to jewellery and organic argan oil. Select your style among the leather bags and accessories at Lalla (Souk Cherifia, Sidi Abdelaziz), or head outside the medina and check out the sophisticated boutiques of the more modern Gueliz district. For high-end contemporary clothes and hand-embroidered shoes, seek out Michèle Baconnier (12 rue des Vieux Marrakchis).

Marrakech boasts a wide array of options for the discerning foodie, offering everything from fine dining to street food. Head to Jemaa el Fna square in the evening and browse the selection of tagines, grilled meats and pastilles from over 100 stalls that throw up a vibrant atmosphere. Alternatively, try the cultivated Terrace des Épices (15 Souk Cherifia, Sidi Abdelaziz) and sip rooftop cocktails whilst enjoying sunset vistas of the square - a popular delight among local expats. Le Salama (40 rue des Banques) is a lively dining spot offering entertainment such as belly dancing to accompany an evening meal, while Gastro MK (14 Derb Sebaai, Bab Laksour) is an ideal haunt for special occasions thanks to its excellent fine dining reputation.
