Do Something Different in Morocco

December 17, 2012

Exciting and exotic, Morocco conjures up visions of ancient cities, Berber tribesmen, bustling souks and wonderful Islamic architecture. Just a stone’s throw from Europe, Morocco is an astonishing mix of Arab, African and European cultures stirred in a cauldron that emerges as the Morocco we know today. As varied as it is culturally, the diversity extends to it geography too. From the sublime beaches on the Atlantic Coast to the dunes of the Sahara right up to the heights of the Atlas Mountains , Morocco is a country that has something for everyone. Come explore cities you have hitherto only heard or read of: Fes, Casablanca, Tangier, Rabat and Marrakech…

Why go?
For culture vultures to revel in the historic cities of Fes and Marrakech, for adventure lovers to go on desert safaris and to hike into the towering Rif Mountains, for sun worshippers to enjoy the beaches on the Atlantic coast and most of all, for all to experience the very warm hospitality and welcoming attitude of the Moroccans.

Make tracks
Casablanca, Tangier and Agadir are the international airports. Fes and Marrakech receive flights from Europe. If coming in from Spain, cross over by ferry.

There are hilltop retreats in the mountains and luxuriously furnished hotels in the cities, traditional riads and comfortable kasbahs in the medinas as well as well appointed international chain of hotels. Take your pick!

Moving around
Rent a car – it is possible to rent in one city and drop off in another. Good idea to use the rail network to get from one city to the other. It is reliable and efficient.

Do something different!
- For an authentic experience stay at a riad or traditional Moroccan home turned into a boutique hotel
- Sign up for a cooking class at the Hotel Arabe in Marrakech and get learn how to make the perfect couscous
- After a full day spent sightseeing, relax by having a massage and a scrub down in a local hamam
- Take a hot air balloon ride and drift over desert landscape and ancient Berber villages for a different perspective
- See where they filmed Lawrence of Arabia –take hiking tour of the Tamdaght Valley
