Morocco is a superb touristic country and one of the most popular tourist destinations out there. It is a very friendly tourist country and one that is sure to impress every traveller. It has stunning mountains, beautiful coastlines, old cities, exotic culture, and the vast sand dunes of the Sahara Desert.
Fez Or Fes
Fez is one of the largest cities in Morocco and one of the country’s main tourist destinations. Fez is a very special city for a range of historical and architectural reasons and has been dubbed the “Mecca of the West” and the “Athens of Africa.” Fez is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site and an absolute must-see on any trip to Morocco. One of the main attractions of Fez is the Medina Of Fez.
Marrakech (or Marrakesh) is toward the south and inland in Morocco. It is the gateway to the Sahara. Here you will feel like you are in a traditional and an oasis desert city. Marrakech is well set up for tourism and its desert and Mediterranean architecture is a marvel to behold. The markets, food, and bazaars here are beyond compare.
One thing to keep in mind. In Morocco, if you want to take a picture of someone’s shop or performance, it’s expected to tip or at least buy something.
Tangier is the bridge between Spain and Morocco, you can easily take ferries back and forth from here. Tangier has a very beautiful old city built around the old fortifications. Here you can see some of the best of Morrocan architecture and culture. Tangier is a coastal city and from the beaches, you can gaze across the mouth of the Mediterranean to Spain and Gibraltar around 15 miles away.
Casablanca is famous for the old-timey 1942 movie of the same name. This is a beautiful city and well worth a visit. As well as having a beautiful old city center, Casablanca is something of the New York of Morrocco and is the most important financial and productive city. Casablanca also has the busiest airport in the country. It is certainly worth spending a day or two in this historic city.
Rabat is the capital city and is a little less touristy than the other cities. It is well worth a visit though. Here you can see the traditional markets and the old coastal castle. It is worth spending a day in the capital, Rabat.
In short, Morocco is absolutely stunning and hospitable country brimming with history and things to see and do. It is also a safe country. But like everywhere in the world, there are some things to keep in mind.
