It seems each year brings a destination de rigueur, and PureWow have got some predictions on what’s next with Marrakech in the Top 9.
How they decide? A little bit of trend data from Google Flights and Hotel Search, plus carefully scouring the globe for what’s generally great—from budget to luxury and adventure. They shortlisted nine cities to dog-ear for 2019 and Marrakech is one of them.
Where to stay: La Sultana, a luxurious and intimate respite from all the craziness—complete with its heated outdoor swimming pool.
A trip to Marrakech is not for the faint of heart. To fully enjoy it, you’ll need to embrace the chaos that is the Red City. The historic city center—or Medina of Marrakech—is a walled, medieval city dating back to the 11th century and the Berber Empire. Get lost wandering its tangle of colorful alleyways, stopping to shop at the lively souks (markets) and bazaars. Other must-visit sites include the Koutoubia Mosque and the Bahia Palace. Temps can be brutally hot in the summer months, so consider planning your visit during the shoulder seasons of March to May or between September and November.
