NORWAY Where skiing was born Marrakech surpasses rivals against mountain backdrop lj 'I proud product of Canadian Schcnlcy Distilleries Lid, LONDON British European Airways has begun the opera- lion of a weekly service be- tween London and its new southern most destination, Marrakech, in west central Morocco. The service operates both ways every Saturday via Gi- braltar, with travel time from London, including the Gibraltar stop, running 4 hours and 20 minutes. Marrakech is an inland city lying roughly half-way between Tangier and the southern bord- er ot Morocco, and is about 150 air miles south of Casa- blanca, the coastal Moroccan city of cinema fame. A feature of the region, one one of the nearest sub- tropical areas to Europe, is toe climate. Winter daytime tem- peratures average 70 degrees Fahrenheit and the sun shines about seven hours a day. The city possesses all of th.e attractions of larger North African communities, including a traditional quarter with mar- kets and narrow alleys and the tree-lined avenues of a modern quarter. In one aspect it sur- passes all of its rivals, how- ever its setting against the magnificent backdrop of the Atlas Mountains. There are about 20 good hotels in Marrakech, six of them in the five-star category ranging from the famous Ma- mounia, the haunt of Sir Win- ston Churchill, to a brand new Holiday Inn.

Most visitors will stay in the lower, wanner areas of the island, whose subtropical cli- mate produces coffee, dates, sugar, banana and oranges. The main resort anea is cen- tred at Puerto de la Cruz. What used to be a quiet village has become a modern, smart resort with a shopping centre (duty free shoppers delight) and three excellent hotels, all o[ which are featured in an all- inclusive BOAC holiday pack- age from as little as in- eluding ail" fare, for sixteen days.
