The oasis of Marrakech lies in the south of the kingdom of Morocco and certainly lives up to its reputation of being a colourful and exotic city. You will find yourself enchanted with its distinct heritage, visible in the swirling stucco and the carved-wood architecture - the city's strong theme of ancient artistry mixed with the upcoming contemporary arts and design scene. Increasingly, Marrakech is associated with its trendy nightlife, new restaurants and, most recently, its tribute to a giant of fashion, the Yves Saint Laurent Museum.
Unsurprisingly, the souks are the sensory highlights of this city - the noise of people selling their beautifully handcrafted wares, the heady smell of the plethoric brightly-coloured spices emanating from all corners, the abundance of colour everywhere you turn - expect adrenaline to run wild as you haggle your way into owning the treasures that will forever remind you of your time here.
Diverse, ancient, colourful and contemporary, Marrakech is the tale of a great many cities, and it does not take long for visitors here to become entranced with its bountiful offering.

Spend your morning at La Maison Arabe where you can do a cooking workshop, which is taken by a dada (which is a traditional Moroccan cook) or a chef from La Maison Arabe Moroccan restaurant and are held at the hotel which is centrally located. Small groups of maximum 10 participants work alongside a translator, using modern equipment found in everyday kitchens. At the end of the morning you will dine on the delicious meal you have prepared, which will include an appetizer and a main dish (a tagine), or a main dish and pudding.
After eating all that delicious Moroccan cuisine, if you fancy burning off some of those calories and seeing the sights, you can hop on a bicycle and explore the city of Marrakech or perhaps the Palmeraie. With fun, experienced guides and the latest bikes for all abilities it is a great way to explore the area.
