Discover the beautiful Red City this fall where the temperatures are cooler. October happens to be one of the best months to visit Marrakech where you can comfortably go sightseeing without worrying about the scorching sun. Here’s our favorite things to do in Marrakech this fall.
Go Treasure Hunting in the Jemaa el-Fna Medina
Get lost in the magical maze of Jemaa el-Fna, Morroco’s most famous square. Pass by during the day to leisurely explore and watch snake charmers ply their craft and come back in evening when the square lights up with life. Pro-tip: Don’t be afraid to haggle if anything catches your eye!

Discover the Desert Oasis in Ouarzazate
Take a day trip (or two) outside of Marrakech and explore the gateway to the Sahara Desert, Ouarzazate, where many famous shows were filmed, including our favorite, Game of Thrones. Don’t miss the most iconic attraction, Ait Ben Haddou, a beautiful ancient ksar which is about 30 minutes outside the city.
Be Inspired by Jardin Majorelle
Discover one of Yves Saint Laurent’s greatest inspiration at Jardin Majorelle. This famous (and highly instagrammable) garden was designed by french oriental artist, Jacques Marjorelle, but later was purchased and restored by Yves Saint Laurent. And did we mentioned that Yves Saint Laurent’s ashes were scattered here too?

Visit The Newly Opened Musée Yves Saint Laurent
For the fashion lovers out there, this spectacular museum is dedicated to the entire life work of Yves Saint Laurent. The museum features his creative masterpieces that span the late designer’s 40-year career, from 1962 until his retirement in 2002.

Enjoy A Heavenly Spa at the Royal Mansour
