|| Marrakech ||
Having visited Morocco multiple times and consistently magical. Marrakech is the the city I’ll always come back to and fall in love again for many reasons – beautiful architecture and impressive decors, tranquil urban gardens, nice locals, snow capped Atlas mountains range providing impressive backdrop, beautiful mosques, arts and crafts, getting lost in the medina, hustle and bustle in the souk, savouring the flavours of Moroccan food, old colonial buildings, rich culture and heritage, hearing the call to prayer, when tradition meets new, stunning riads, seeing camels by the roadside, all under a pristine blue sky.
I start off with something ‘charming’ and ‘beautiful’ – beautiful Moroccan gardens in and around Marrakech, and a beautiful riad hotel that bodes perfectly with the garden themed visual diary. Enjoy!
|| Jardin Majorelle ||
Walking through through this postcard-ready serene garden of Jardin Majorelle restored by Yves Saint Laurent in the 1980s, was like something out of a fairytale. Too Beautiful. The garden sits just outside the medina walls of the ‘Red City’, features the famous cobalt blue house and Monet-esque water lily pond surrounded by exotic plants and lush greens, it’s one of the most beautiful gardens I’ve ever visited and an absolute calming effect on people and calming on the eye. Although I have visited the garden twice it was worth a revisit. Don’t miss the Berber museum, Galerie Love, and the famous Majorelle Blue square fountain, and Yve Saint Laurent Memorial.
Jardin Majorelle – Rue Yves Saint Laurent, 40090, Marrakech.
