Marrakech

Stock Photography By Mark Eden

Marrakech, known as "The Red City" due to the colour of its ancient walls, provides an intense travel experience. Bargain for carpets or spices in the souks, or take in the spectacle of Djemma el-Fna, the world's greatest open air circus. Here snake charmers compete for attention with musicians and story tellers. At sunset, food stalls set up to offer all types of Moroccan delicacies to be eaten amongst the festivities. All of this set against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains.
