In Marrakech, you will get lost in the narrow alleyways of the Medina. You will shop and haggle at the Souks (small markets). Don't expect luxury and modernities. A trip to Marrakech will take you centuries back in time. Jamaa el-Fnaa is the crown jewel of this ancient city. The square in the Southeastern part of the Medina was the inspiration for the creation of UNESCO's List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
