From the exotic medina to the fast-growing modern city and beyond, from shopping in the souks to unwinding in a hammam, it's all found in this new Marrakesh Berlitz Pocket Guide - a new addition for the best-selling Berlitz Pocket Guide range. Fully revised and updated, featuring stunning new cover designs and freshly revised page layouts, this handy guide is packed with all the information you need for your trip. Clear colour-coded sections enable you to locate the information you need easily, with sections on history, where to go, what to do, eating out, handy travel tips, hotels & restaurants and other insightful features, allowing you to make the most of your leisure time. Written by a local expert, this guide offers comprehensive coverage of Marrakesh's attractions, identifying the top 10 sights Marrakesh has to offer, as well as highlighting the city's best shopping, sports, nightlife & entertainment, children's activities and Hammams & Spas. Shopaholics are well catered for with a dedicated section on shopping and the famous souks, with advice on the best places to find crafts, antiques, carpets, leather, art, jewellery, books and much more. An 'Eating Out' section provides information on where to go and what the local specialities are. For those wishing to explore beyond the city, a number of excursions are suggested; for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the souks, a day trip to the old fishing port of Essaouira for some fresh sea air makes a welcome change or for cooler temperatures and wonderful walking head to the Ourika Valley in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains. Insightful cultural advice on sacred storks and mint tea gives you a deeper understanding of the city's heritage. Accommodation for all budgets is also recommended, along with an A-Z of practical travel tips covering currency, etiquette, language tips, translations and how to get around, supported with detailed mapping to aid orientation. Colour photography throughout the book provides a highly visual introduction to the destination and the comprehensive information inside helps travellers get to the heart of the destination - making this guide truly a pleasure to read before, during and after your visit. Small in size and big on content, this guide actually fits into a pocket - perfect for a weekend away.
