With a host of beaches, ports, oasis and mountains to choose from, Morocco is the perfect destination to plan a vacation in! With an idyllic countryside mixed with amazing examples of early Islamic architecture, this destination will definitely leave you lost for words with its beauty.
Start your journey with a few days spent in the famous Casablanca. Explore the French period Ville Nouvellie. Pay your respects at the Hassan II Mosque. Take an afternoon out to go and enjoy the Parc de la Ligue Arabe before taking a walk around the Casablanca Cathedral! The winding streets and bustling markets of Marrakech are also worth making the visit for! Other attractions like the Djemaa el Fna Square and the labyrinthine alley ways of Fes should also pepper your itinerary!
Apart from these popular destinations, Morocco also brings quite a few other attractions to keep you occupied. Known for its unique brand of music, many cities are known for both their musical gatherings. You should also take a mule ride to Tasa Ouirgane, take a walk around the rows of olive groves in the valleys or explore the ancient salt mines found in the region. The mystic media of Fes is also an experience worth taking back, as is a walk through the colourful Kasbahs of Marrakech. You can even take a trip to Ait Ben Haddou to catch a unique glimpse at an ancient Kasbah village.
Morocco also offers a traveller an exciting list of dishes to choose from! Apart from the national delicacy, Couscous, the country also brings a mouth-watering list of lamb and beef dishes to choose from. Go ahead and order a plate of Pastilla, wolf down a serving of Tajine and top the main course off with some Harira. Don’t forget to save some space for the scrumptious deserts to be found here. A popular option for the latter is kaab el ghzal as well as Halwa Shebakia.
Don’t let the deceptively laid-back nature of Morocco fool you, though. This country also sports a line-up of adventure sports that easily matches up to any other destination. The diverse terrain and climate offers a unique set of options. These include scuba diving, surfing, white water rafting, wind-surfing and many others. You can even take some time to go hiking, trekking, mountain biking, para-gliding and believe it or not skiing and snowboarding in Oukaïmeden!
The most important ingredient for an amazing holiday in Morocco, though, is a stress-free mind.
