Ait Ben Haddou, See the Life of Berber World!

Ait Ben Haddou is one of the "must-see" places in Morocco.
This is a fortified town of old Berber people.
Not so many are living here now.

People remember this place because popular Hollywood movies such as Gladiator were shot here and now it's protected as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Looking down from the top of the hill. Small houses are like toys,

To get to AIt Ben Haddou from Marrakech, we drive over high Atlas mountains. You can enjoy the great view!
And take a lunch break with those panoramic views.

Berber villages in High Atlases are famous with its stones and potteries.

Inside the Ait Ben Haddou. It is like a maze, sometimes streets are the roof of someone's house.

From here, you can see the huge field where the film "Gladiator" was shot. Everyone wants to stop here to take photos!

Some people are still living inside the village, and they have been keeping their traditional life. You would feel like you are just back in 100 or 200 years ago.

Riad Altair in Marrakech, Evertyhing is Just Beautiful!

Here I'm letting you know one of MY favorite riads in Marrakech.
There are so many riads in the town and I've visited many of them.
This place somehow makes me feel like "Yes, this is the riad in Marrakech!!"

This place is not far from the parking place near Bab Doukkara, but as always :-) hard to find the entrance. Better ask a local to find the way.
Once you get there, it'll be easy for the second time.

The courtyard with a lot of green is something typical with this riad.
Fountain, rose petals, and of course, candles at night.

Room is not so big just like other riads. But it is well organized and looks authentic including traditional Moroccan carpets.

Some people say they like this quiet neighborhood. Just go straight to get to Jemaa el Fna.

This is the most beautiful breakfast I've ever seen in my life.
This could change your life. Really :-)

Todra Gorge, Don't Forget to Look Up!

Todra Gorge is a beautiful oasis between Ouarzazate and Merzoga, along the road with thousand kasbahs.
Huge steep cliffs and quiet rivers are something you should not miss, and also, don't forget to look up the cliffs, you can see something you've never seen in your life!

When you just get into the gorge, the valley, you will feel like you are a part of picture!

Around the gorge is a peaceful quiet oasis, you can enjoy hiking!

If you look up the cliff, you'll see people climbing up the almost 90 degrees slope! They look so small, you need to be careful to find it out.

They have a hotel and restaurant at the food ot the cliff.

When you are in the shade, it's so cool and refreshing.

Enjoy your tajine or couscous lunch in the shade. Cool breeze in the oasis would be a great spice for you.
