Some of you travel even the first half of December or just the week before Christmas Eve. So that you can be at home by then. Others just travel during the week around it, so they gain red days to have a longer holiday at the end of the year.

Another option is to travel the days around New years eve (see also our post in spanish), so you can enjoy the fullest version of this feast in the desert. Glamour is also around the simple choice of walk in the Djemaa el Fna square to welcome the new year in Marrakech.
