Marrakech - Having lived in Marrakech since I was born, getting used to its weather, to its red walls, and to the unique sense of humor and funny accent of its people, I unfortunately failed several times to understand why people, both Moroccans and non-Moroccans, admire the city so much that it has been selected as world’s ninth best Christmas shopping destination, the number one best tourist destination in Africa, and amongst the top ten best street foods in the world, by different institutions and websites where thousands of travelers around the world voted in favor of the red city.
