Marrakech, Morocco: The Instagram Tour Guide

Whether you’re a budding influencer or just hoping to share some unique pictures with your friends, this Instagram Tour Guide to Marrakech, Morocco will help you get the best shots.

We take a look at some of the most visually inspiring things to do and see in Marrakech. The city is a hotbed of culture and history, providing amazing scenery. These locations can serve as the perfect foreground or backdrop to make your Instagram profile truly stand out.

Luxury Riad

Where you stay can set the tone for your whole trip. It’s also a great way to start off a collection of travel pics. When staying in Morocco, visitors in-the-know choose a riad over a hotel. They provide an authentic, cultural experience while also providing luxurious comfort and security.

A riad is a traditional Moroccan house with an interior courtyard. They showcase the architecture and designs to be found in Marrakech. Images here have the dual purpose of showing off the luxury lifestyle, while also sharing the local culture.

More than a boost to your social media, a luxury riad suite is a great way to spend your vacation.

Souk: The Marketplace

Visiting the souk is one of the most popular Marrakech attractions. People enjoy day trips to the marketplace, where they can shop, haggle, and take in the sites.  

It’s easy to while away the day exploring the shops for lamps, rugs, spices, and souvenirs. The souk provides fantastic photo opportunities as the imagery is as is rich in colours as it is in culture.

 

Jardin Majorelle

The Jardin Majorelle is one of the most visited sites in all of Morocco, making it a top Marrakech attraction. Visitors can admire the impressive botanical gardens or snap a selfie in front of the iconic stairs.

 

Yves Saint Laurent Museum

While out enjoying the gardens, it’s worth visiting the YSL museum which is right next door.  The museum is dedicated entirely to the famous fashion designer and his works. For fashion devotees, a trip to the YSL museum is among the top things do in Marrakech.

Rooftop Terrace Dining

After a day full of activities, you’re sure to build up an appetite. The nights offer a fresh perspective of the city. Take in the sights with fine dining on a Moroccan rooftop terrace.

Enjoy a meal that’s as Instagram-worthy as the views with fine dining from Le Trou Au Mur, a favourite Marrakech destination for cuisine.

Camel Riding

For explorers and nature lovers, we recommend a camel ride in the desert. It’s a unique experience and an easy day trip from Marrakech, Morrocco. The desert makes for an incredible backdrop to your camel-riding Instagram shots.

For thrill-seekers, a day trip to the desert offers all sorts of adventure activities. You can speed around offroad on a dune buggy at speeds of up to 80 mph.

A Night in The Desert

You can keep your day in the desert going with a night under the canvas. Spending a night in a luxury tent is a memorable thing to do in Marrakech. Get a taste of rural Morocco and take in the awe-inspiring scenery.

You will still have all the comforts of home. Not to mention a top tier chef serving a delicious Berber dinner. It’s a great way to celebrate a special occasion.

Spa Day

After a day (or night) spent out in the desert, you’ll have earned some pampering. Morocco is home to world-class hammams. Treat yourself to luxurious spa treatments, steams, and massages.

All the while, you’ll be surrounded by beautiful Moroccan architecture and can take a dip in the iconic tiled pools of Marrakech.
