It’s no accident that the annual PURE experiential travel show takes place in Marrakech – if the ‘Red City’ is somewhere that travel professionals want to visit, then it must be worth a look!The secret to making the most of Marrakech is to combine exploring (best done on foot) with taking time out in the many green gardens and oases which dot the city. These are often hidden away behind walls and gates, but discovering them is one of the joys of being here.Marrakech has some very famous associations: one of the most beautiful of all the gardens is the Majorelle, at the former home of the late designer Yves Saint-Laurent. More than one of his women’s wear collections was inspired by the colors of the city where he spent many of his holidays.Winston Churchill also liked to escape from the English winters by staying at the iconic La Mamounia Hotel, which today has a bar named after this notoriously thirsty statesman, or you can find refreshment of a different kind in the gardens of the El Bahia Palace.
