It's okay to admit it: the red city can get a bit crazy. Between the swarming taxis, packed streets and the never-ending bustle of the Medina, Marrakech is a lot to take in. Fortunately, the Atlas Mountains offer a nearby escape. From argan oil shops in the Ourika Valley to Aït Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the border of the Sahara Desert, there is lots to explore in Morocco's smaller towns. It's all just a road trip away, over the Tichka mountain pass and into the country side.
