The first day I got to Marrakech, I was passing Le Jardin Secret while mingeling in the souk and thought ‘wow this looks inviting and so fancy’! After googling it, is it worth to go there and see it closer, it quikly became my must see garden. And here it comes! 😍
Before I came here I had different plan of things I will do in Marrakech, but that changed a little bit while resting, anyways I will need to come back here, I always wanted to travel in Morroco for several weeks. And, of course, I will come back to Marrakech, at least for shopping!
Le Jardin Secret is all about differences, this sophisticated and fancy garden is in the middle of souk, where shoes cost 10€ and people sleep on the piece of paper on the floor. Anyways, there are several of buildings, beauty of Morrocan architecture and heritage pieces, and tower to climb on the roof and see the panorama.
I couldn’t resist not to take pictures at the bathroom which has stunning pieces I would like to have in my home. For sure, Morroco is the best place to get statement interior decorations!
YSL boutique. All items are made from Morrocan leather by YSL designs, I especially fell in live with those embroided blue shoes- I got familiar in the souk. This blue color is very popular in Morroco and no wonder that Yves Saint Laurent was using this indigo color in his fashion design collections. I guess he got quite inspired by Morrocan culture and heritage, invented this beautiful garden with the house, painted that house in blue color, of course. And now it became very popular tourists attraction.
It is not allowed to take pictures in this museum, but it teaches people about very old traditions in Marrocan style and fashion. How people were crafting, decorating and wearing clothes, handmade home textiles and other stuff. And we use so many ideas and inspirations in fashion right now: embroideries, accessorising, carpeting, layering, patterns, etc.
I think in Morroco designers can get so many inspiring ideas for home decor, fashion design or even photography. I always wanted to visit Morroco for this inspiration, souks, camel rides, Shahrezad stories, architecture and unexpected adventures!
Well, Morroco was on my wishlist to visit for quite some time, as I remember for at least 12 years now. At lastly I got a chance to visit one of the main cultural and heritage capital Marrakech. Just because Marrakech doesn’t have a sea shore doesn’t mean you cannot have a great vacation here.
Weather in June is just perfect, especially when we missed the summer in Lithuania so much, in a middle of the day temperature rises up to 34degrees. Sunny with some breeze- great for suntanning on the rooftop.
In the afternoon when sun turns so hot it is great to visit some cafes or restaurants, have some mint tea or just rest in some parks. If you don’t want to mingle in the sun use this beautiful horse carriage. Of course, there are so many taxis stopping in the street offering a ride, help or anything…😂
One of the gratest things in Marrakech- never know whats around the corner, so try to not follow the native people or those who offers to guide – you will miss this surprising opportunity to really explore! Wanderlust.
