Marrakech is a frantic circus of activity in the arid foothills of the Atlas mountains; prepare to lose your inhibitions and sense of direction and embrace the loud, colourful city and its hurried population. Try to walk ten paces in any direction and you'll come up against towering piles of spices, trundling donkey carts, piles of vibrant leather pouffes or stalls selling fragrant slow-cooked dishes to make your mouth water. Here you can lounge like a sovereign in a palatial riad, graze the stalls at Djemaa el-Fnaa or lose yourself in the tiny switchback alleyways of the medina, perusing the many souks as you go. If it all gets too much escape to the ville nouvelle for the contemporary art, restaurants and boutiques of the new town.
 
Djemaa el-Fnaa is a brilliant culture shock and immersing yourself in the unfamiliar is the best way to get your bearings. Bask in the colours at Jardin Majorelle with its famous electric blue walls, cactus gardens and bamboo passage; once owned by the French designer Yves Saint Laurent, his ashes were scattered here after his death in 2008. In the evening stop in at Café France at dusk to watch Djemaa el-Fnaa's transformation, as the snake charmers make way for steaming street food outlets. Here you can sip a mint tea with the call of the muezzin as your soundtrack. Adventurers can get off the beaten track on a trip to the Atlas Mountains, just an hour from the city.
