Well, a little bit of both if you ask me. Let me explain…
Being int he city during Ramadan
Marrakech is a city like no other. The time we visited it was Ramadan and things were a bit different because of that. Most people don’t eat or drink anything after sunrise until sunset. What a discipline, respect for that. During our stay we didn’t notice the fact that it was Ramadan since we could eat and drink in all the restaurants we’ve been. So don’t let the Ramadan period keep you from visiting Marrakech. According to the local people it’s the safest period to be in the city since the crime rates drop drastically during this important religious period.
