Marrakech in early January.

What can we expect, or what can you advise for 2 older travellers' first time in Marrakesh? Is winter really wet? What clothing / to do / health etc.

    Hi Marion - it is cool in Marrakesh in winter but very enjoyable. Take a pullover and a warm jacket for the evenings. You should not worry about health - there are good medical and hospital facilities in Marrakech. To do??? How many days do you have - there are so many day trips plus you can get lost in the souq haggling for bargains all day, find a seat on one of the terraces overlooking Djema el Fna and watch as the theatre of the square unfolds beneath you. Snake charmers, story tellers, singers, dancers. Take in the Fantasia on one of your nights - kitschy but fantastic!
