The best thing to do in Marrakech is taking a day trip to the surrounding area. In this article we will talk about some of the best places where you can enjoy your journey. You may not need to rent a car to get to these places, you may take a taxi to this location. But I suggest you to rent a car, so you can discover this area in your own way. Below are the best things you can do in Marrakech

You can take a trip from you accommodation to Ouzoud. The Ouzoud waterfalls are located in the province of Azilal, about 150 km from Marrakech. It is one of the best things that Morocco has to offer. Here you can take a short stroll or longer around the waterfalls, if you wish. Here are also local restaurants where you can enjoy your lunch on a terrace with view over the waterfalls.

The second thing that you can do in Marrakech is a trip again, but this time to Ourika Valley. The Ourika valley is located 30 from Marrakech at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. In this valley you can visit waterfalls and hike around berber villages

A third tip your can plan is to the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou in Ouarzazate. Have an early start after breakfast at your hotel and drive over the Atlas Mountains across Tizi n Titchka. Ait Ben Haddou is UNESCO heritage and many famous movies have been filmed on this location. The kasbah of Ait benHaddou is located about 186 km from Marrakech.
