The city of Marrakech is reinforcing its position as one of the world’s most attractive destinations. A few days ago, the New York Times ranked Morocco’s Red city 11 in their 52-place list and encouraged its readers to visit a number of its emblematic historical sites like the new Yves Saint Laurent Museum adjacent to the famous Majorelle Garden.
French daily newspaper, Le Monde, also recommended Marrakech in its 20-destination list. The article, titled “Where to Travel in 2017,” states that since the World Climate Summit, COP22, “Marrakech has a new terminal,” referencing the newly inaugurated Marrakech-Menara airport terminal.
Marrakech’s inclusion in Le Monde’s list came few days after Air France unveiled its plan to reopen its Marrakech-Roissy air route at a frequency of three flights per week.
