๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ BEST TIME TO VISIT

April, May, September and October are the best overall times to visit with their summer climate in the south and mountains as well as the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts.

July and August are the hottest months โ€“ great for the coastal areas.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ HOW TO GET THERE

Fly direct to Marrakesh and Agadir from Manchester

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The rail network is great linking the main towns of the north, the coast and Marrakesh, plus the buses and taxiโ€™s are plentiful to take you to the smaller villages.

Car hire is also a great opportunity to see Marrakesh under your own steam.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ WHERE TO STAY

Great Value
Hotel Kenzi Europa – Agadir
Riad Mimouna – Essaouira

Middle of the road
Riu Tikkida Gardens, Marrakesh
Movenpick Hotel Casablanca

Go all out
La Sultana Marrakech
Kasbah Tamadot โ€“ Altas Mountains

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ TRY AT HOME

Bastila of Fes with Chicken or Quail

Pronounced Bastila, the sweet and savoury meat pie has Andalusian-Arab origins. Slow cooked pigeon meat- although chicken is more commonly used nowadays – seasoned with a wide array of spices among which cinnamon, cardamon and black pepper. The meat mixture is wrapped in a blanket of Filo dough, baked and finally topped with crushed almonds and icing sugar.

Go on, give this tasty traditional dish it a try ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
