You won't run out of things to do in Marrakech, a city where you can spend days exploring grandiose palaces and mosques, photogenic gardens, sacred tombs, and traditional mansions that evoke a bygone era.
Family-friendly places like Jardin Majorelle and Palacio da Bahia will thrill your kids. There's lots more to do: explore and take pictures at Jemaa el-Fna, steep yourself in history at El Badi Palace, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

For maps and more tourist information, read our Marrakech journey app.

Saint Louis, USA to Marrakech is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Saint Louis to Marrakech due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Saint Louis in December, expect nights in Marrakech to be a bit warmer, around 44°F, while days are warmer, around 69°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel to Cape Town.
