My friend and I decided we wanted to go away for New Year 2016. We fancied going somewhere we had never been before, so we chose a little break away to Marrakech for 5 days. To get the proper experience, we stayed in a Riad, which gives you a real taste of the Moroccan culture. When we were there, we had spa days and went for a Hammam, which was ace. We visited local markets, and went to some amazing restaurants. A lot of the restaurants here have dancers and musicians, so the restaurants turn into clubs/bars with entertainment on as you eat. The dancers are amazing and mesmerizing to watch. I would highly recommend Marrakech for a little get away.
Cape Town is stunning. I've been here a few times now, and both times we had a blast. The first time I visited was in April 2009, and then again in January 2010 for a friend’s wedding. Such a beautiful place, with amazing memories, lovely beaches, beach bars, and restaurants. We got a car and headed up to the vineyards in Franschhoek for a few days. The scenery is just breath taking, with world class cuisines and the finest wines. We visited lots of the vineyards, and they sure know how to make nice wine there.
