No matter how many cities you've traipsed through on your travels, or how many characters you've met along the way, nothing can quite prepare you for Marrakech. This truly is a feast for the senses, and in your first day walking around the 'Medina' (old town), you won't know where to look and you will wonder what you can hear in the distance.
In the instances where you're wondering what the smell is, in many cases it may be the donkey slowly walking slowly behind you. While walking through the Medina really is like walking back in time, the city also has a new town that more resembles the type of environment most of us are accustomed to. But no matter where you spend most of your time, just get ready to be overwhelmed at some stage during your stay in what is unquestionably one of the most fascinating, exhilarating and exciting cities in the world.
