4. Menara Gardens in Marrakesh, Morocco
Marrakesh was hip and trendy in the 1960's and 70's but lost out in the 80's and 90's to places like Turkey and Mallorca.
The Menara Gardens were created in the 12th century, boasting olive groves and orchards that are simply stunning to see under the merciless Moroccan sun.
It's a welcoming city, where you can expect to find traditional Islamic hospitality and the occasional grumpy camel.
