Food and Lodging: Approximately 1500 Riads, Guesthouses, and hotels are available in Marrakech where luxury stays are located outside the city of Marrakech. But the medina is completely enveloped by rich Moroccan tradition with the availability of smaller guest houses. It consists of the cultural touch and glimpse of heritage which will make you feel nostalgic when you leave the land. This place will suit your pocket. Well, the northern area of the city is less crowded and relaxed. It is hassle-free and a good number of restaurants are available along with Djemma el – Fna which is a renowned market place in the old city of Marrakech’s Medina. Well, unfortunately, you may not find a soothing and relaxing resort pool to dive in because of the desert climate where water is pretty valuable. I believe you can even enjoy it there without diving in the water. Isn’t it…? But sure you can enjoy Marrakech Riads like Al – Masirah, Marhbabikoum and L’Orangeraie and of course many small houses to stay where you can get served local and organic food items to eat.

The Argan Oil industries produce anti-aging world cosmetic products at a high price. This oil extracted from Argan nuts coming from the fruits of the Argan tree. These trees also prevent soil erosion and let not convert the southwest area of Morocco into a desert area. However, the UNESCO plays a vital role in prevents deforestation possibly of these trees for wood fire by locals unwillingly. Therefore it uplifts the fair trade of the Argan industries with better employments being provided to women folk here. And even the folk too are conscious about the soil erosion, deforestation and of course their one of the source of employment educating their fellow locals about the importance of these trees. The products may be charged high but are genuine undoubtedly. So be happy end enjoy the market square of Jemma el – Fna.

Modesty in Textile: Medina, despite being cosmopolitan, it highly enjoins and appreciates modest dresses. Moreover, the covering of the knees and shoulders are highly appreciated. Well, we all should have high respect for such modesty. I personally believe that it makes one feel royal always.

So, plan at best and enjoy the rest…..!
