2. Place Des Espices
Place Des Epices is a bustling square located in the heart of the old city within the Marrakech Medina. This photogenic spot is famous for its colorful market stalls, which are packed with spices, fruits, and other local products. If you visit Place Des Epices early in the morning, you'll be able to capture the hustle and bustle of the Medina before it gets too crowded. Make sure you watch out for mopeds- they rip them through the tiny crowded streets and do not care if you are in the way! In this area you can also find the most BEAUTIFUL hand made straw bags and rattan products. They are extremely inexpensive, always haggle! We needed an extra suitcase just to take everything back home that we bought, lol! You can also find the most gorgeous handmade Berber rugs and home decor within the Medina! I got everyone's business card so that I can order some of them for a good price when I buy a new house.
The Medina is absolutely enormous, so this location is difficult to find. Here is the address so that you can find it :
Riads are traditional Moroccan houses that are found throughout Marrakech. These stunning homes feature intricate tile work, ornate courtyards, and traditional Moroccan furnishings. Riads are perfect for capturing that quintessential Moroccan aesthetic, and there are plenty of them to explore in Marrakech. The most popular one I have seen all over Pinterest and Instagram is Riad BE. Click the photo below for more of the Top Riads in Marrakech!

5. Jardin Majorelle
Jardin Majorelle is a botanical garden originally created by French painter Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s. The garden was later restored by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Berge. Jardin Majorelle features a mix of exotic plants, fountains, and vibrant blue buildings. The eye-catching blue color scheme provides a perfect backdrop for your Instagram photos. You can visit here and the YSL museum together, as they are right next to each other!

Koutoubia Mosque: Not only is the Koutoubia Mosque one of the most famous landmarks in Marrakech, it's also a stunning example of Islamic architecture.

I also used this landmark as a guide on how to get out of the Medina when I would get lost- which is inevitable.

Our Villa was also Extremely Instagrammable!
The aesthetic at our Villa was also incredible. We stayed at Taj Villa Marrakech. As a group full of content creators, we were all legit hyperventilating with all of the opportunities. Every nook and cranny was a photo op. The rooms were also beautifully decorated with handmade Berber rugs, pillows, and rattan elements. This place is mainly for weddings, but would be the PERFECT place for a campaign shoot for any brand. (See below my photo for my 1st Phorm Vegan Power Pro Bars Campaign (yes they are also as tasty as they look).
They also set up the most gorgeous luncheons and dinners at the Villa, as if this place couldn't get any more beautiful!
