Classics Comment – Top Tips For Morocco
I found the article in the Sunday Telegraph entitled " Morocco Top Tips, recommendations and travel advice for Telegraph readers by Telegraph readers" very enlightening, as it's such a popular destination with our clients.
`Word to the wise' - this tip to learn a few choice words in Arabic, namely Laa shukran or no thank you, was a brilliant suggestion and one I'd certainly recommend when heading into the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. I also agree with the tip to be a 'patient purchaser as the souks often have the same goods at different prices, but I'm sure anyone who has visited will agree that haggling is all part of the fun of immersing oneself in the culture!
Finally, my top tip for a weekend break packed with elegance and cultural experiences in this amazing country would be a stay at the newly refurbished La Mamounia. Having recently re-opened its famous doors once more, following talented designer Jacques Garcia's refurbishment, this former favourite haunt of Sir Winston Churchill has been brought back up-to-date and is now sure to inspire any Arabian nights fantasy. Built in 1923, this legendary palace of art deco magnificence is the perfect oasis from the bustle of Marrakech with its labyrinthine alleyways, covered markets and original fortifications.
