Select Guide Marrakech is a brand new inspirational guide to this vibrant city, offering authentic experiences, fresh discoveries, and a good dose of local culture. From the exotic souks of the medina to the glamour of the ville nouvelle, Marrakech is a riot of contradictions and extremes, at once African and Arab, eastern and western, desert town and modern city, religious and secular, elegant and rough-edged, and Select Marrakech will help you explore all these diverse elements. An inspirational In the Mood for...section is filled with suggestions, all grouped by mood, whether you're seeking the best place for lunch in the medina or where to get the finest views across the city. The Selection offers a collection of over 100 ideas for a memorable stay in Marrakech, organised by neighbourhood, with plenty of secret gems in the mix. Explore sun-dappled courtyards, picnic under an ancient olive tree, sip tea with the carpet sellers and shop in the medina. Wherever you are, you can dip in and find inspiration, backed up by clear mapping and a wealth of practical information. The hotels section suggests great places to stay in Marrakech, organised by theme, whether you are seeking an authentic raid in the medina, or a five-star hotel in the new town. Finally, the Essentials section offers a user-friendly run-down of practical information.
