There are few places that captivate the senses so much as Marrakesh. Morocco's fourth largest city is a feast for both the mouth (the tagine and street eats are to die for) and the eyes (think bustling marketplaces and ornate mosques all over). And nowhere is this vibrancy more apparent than in the city's maze-like alleys you're literally guaranteed to get lost in (yes, in both confusion and awe). Many are painted salmon pink, which explains why Marrakesh is nicknamed the Red City.

But the stunning visions don't stop there – the old city's main square, Jemaa el-Fnaa, is a hive of activity, and home to intriguing food and dazzling sunsets in equal measures. Plus, even better, a YSL museum is opening up this year, just near Jardin Majorelle, one of the most disarmingly colorful gardens in the city.
