Photo Review Radisson Blu Hotel Dakar, Senegal

The Jardin Majorelle Marrakech Gardens was one ofthe first things I visited inthe city- just an hour after I landed. I got there around 5.30PM and the crowds were abating a bit. This was a good thing since the space is small and it wouldn't be a lot of fun otherwise.

I loved the colors and the way the plants were assembled. The shiny floors and the huge planters made it lookmore like a luxury hotel garden than a botanical garden.

The views presented through the shapes of desert plants is simply awesome. It reminded me a bit of my visit to the Desert Park in Phoenix last year.

Despite its small size, I found the Jardin Majorelle to be one of the best sights in Marrakech. It's also outside of the Medina (Old Town) so you will experienceless drama with the pushy sellers and taxi drivers here.

Don't miss this gem when going to Marrakech, Ideally, go early in the morning or later in the afternoon.

The entrance fee is 50 Moroccan dirham (about $5).
