I’ll be starting with the very first and favorite place, Marrakech Medina, a place full of colors, moods, and mystery that will surely make you fall in love with the place, again and again, when you see the pictures of it.
All you need to remember when you visit the place is that you take pictures of the donkey carts along unlike stones, beautiful colored tiles, eye-capturing scenes within the medina, and the doorways that will make you stop after every 10m. Well, there are many locations to photograph in Marrakech and you can discover a lot more places in the Medina.
