2 teens looking for an adventure in maroc!!

helooo..
im a young gal (arab living in london) and plan to go to Morocco (marakech) for 5 nights for my 22nd birthday...with my 20 year old bro (hes so much fun!) we want fun, exciting, cultural, and memorable adventures!! would really love it if anyone could give us some advice on what are the must-dos so that we pack as much as we can in 5days, i wish i could stay longer but my bro works at harrods and they wont give him time off :-0

please tell us the names of places, activites, were going to stay at the atlas hotel.
also do u think its worth going for 5days only??
i appreciate any comments..

Make sure you visit the following attractions in Marrakech:
-Jamaa El Fna square. Comes alive at night.
-Bahia Palace: Very nice old traditional palace. You pay a 10 Dirham entrance fee. Opening hours start from 9am until 12pm and from 2.30pm until 5pm. It's close to Jamaa El Fnaa square.
-Ben Youssef Medrassa.
-Menara.
-Majorelle gardens.
-The souks.
You could also take one day off from the hassle and bustle of city and go on a daytrip to the high Atlas mountains.
5 days is enough time to explore Marrakech.
Have a good time.

If there is anything that would be a problem is the hassle from shop-owners trying to get you into their shops to sell you something. Other than that it's all good. As single female walking around alone at evenings or night, you will attract some unwanted attention. Just apply the same rules for when you are back home, if you are used to going out at midnight alone in London then you can do that in Marrakech as well.

My nickname obviously says that I'm Moroccan. I live in Agadir but originaly from Taroudant which is an hour away from Agadir.
Temperature during daytime is usually warm and dry so slippers are fine. Evenings get cooler though so you will need a light jacket and maybe some shoes will come in handy also.
Happy birthday and have a good time
