Marrakech is a wonderful destination for the holidays, offering visitors exhilarating scenery with a variety of outdoor adventures, cultural events, jeep tours and shopping excursions.
One of Marrakech's leading attractions is Souk, which welcomes about one million shoppers each year. With more than 300 specialty boutiques and exclusive artisan galleries as well as holiday festivities, shopping becomes a joyful revelation of fabulous art and distinctive gifts around every corner.
The end of the year is a very active period in Marrakech. On 4 December the 9th Edition of the Marrakech Film Festival begins and will end on 12 December. The famous Place Djemaa El Fna, where you usually find snake-charmers, story-tellers and other spectacles, will be transformed into an open-air cinema.
This is followed by the 4th edition of the Marrakech International Laugh Festival. It will take place from the 18th till 20 December at the Royal Theater. This meeting of the world humor will be sponsored by Mohamed El Khiyari, the famous Moroccan comedian.
In this Aid... Men, women, and children are expected to dress in their finest clothing to perform Aid prayer (Salatu'l-`id) in any Mosque. This is a very special time where families come together in peace, harmony and to share. We wish all a happy Aid Aladha and encourage those that have never experienced it to come to Marrakech and join us all.
