Ever heard of the imperial city of Marrakesh in Morocco? A city with charming old world vibes of forts, palaces, luxury hammams aka traditional baths, riads aka houses and more, is now hosting the beautiful Malayalam actress Malavika Mohanan in its pretty streets. And what's more, Malavika seems to be enjoying the best of both worlds too, style-wise!
The 'Christy' actress recently shared a photo of her decked up in elegant traditional Indian ear rings, bangles and a necklace, along with her black dress and mirror work bag, which was clicked while she enjoyed a stroll in Marrakesh. She captioned the photo, "Felt lime my Indian accessories fit right into the lovely visual palette of Marrakech." She even hinted that there is so much cacti too everywhere, which is a common sight in this part of the world.
Cats, wild roses and fresh cherries
Malavika, who is an animal lover, confessed on her social media handle that she has been clicking the pictures of many cats during her trip. She shared the photo of a cuddly sleeping cat inside a box, and captioned it, "When you realise you have travelled 8066 kms to mainly take pictures of cats."
The actress has also been going for hikes during which she spotted lovely wild roses, picking fresh and apparently the "sweetest" cherries, and even enjoying freshly harvested oranges in Atlas Mountains! She even clicked a few photos, decked up in an orange outfit, alongside a basketfull of tangerine.
A picturisque destination
For those tempted to check out Morocco and see for real what Malavika enjoyed, the North African country has plenty to offer - its busy streets, gardens, snowy mountains, deserts and its oases, its gorgeous souks aka markets, famed baths, tanneries and madras (religious school) - all of them offer an all-round touristy experience. Many travellers call it a country of stark contrasts, due to this reason.
Its exotic cuisine - consisting of the famed lamb dish couscous, the herbal tea khudenjal, soups like harira and bissara - can also impress foodies from all over the world.
The months of June to August is the best time to visit the country, according to travel experts.
