Top Reasons to visit Morocco now

Top Reasons to visit Morocco now

Great value
You don’t always need to spend 10+ hours on a plane to reach an exotic destination. Morocco is only a few hours away but has the same feel as a long-haul destination. It also offers excellent value for money, whether you want to travel on a budget using simple accommodation and public transport, or treat yourself to a stay in traditional riads where you can relax in sumptuous palaces without breaking the bank. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t like a bargain?

The “Red City” of Marrakech, so called after the ochre walls that surround the medina, as well as its sandstone buildings, never fails to fascinate its visitors. One of the busiest and most iconic cities in Africa, Marrakech boasts some legendary sites such as the atmospheric Djemma el Fna square, the intricate souks, the magnificent Bahia Palace and the Koutoubia Mosque, a distinctive landmark that can be seen from every corner of the city!

The most impressive feature or the “Mecca of the West” is its medina; a labyrinth of narrow alleyways with a myriad of stalls divided into retail areas - copper, leather, carpets, spices, pottery, jewellery, metalwork, fish, meat, dried fruit…you name it, it's there - which culminate in the sight of the oldest tanneries in the world.

Leaving behind the buzz of the cities, you can drive through snow-capped mountains and reach the desert in a matter of hours. A night camping under the stars and a camel ride on the golden sand dunes of the Sahara are an absolute must!

The Atlas Mountains dissect the country forming a barrier that results in a dramatic contrast in climate between North and South. Whether you only want to visit for a day and take a relaxed walk or whether you want to attempt climbing the majestic Jebel Toubkal (4167m), this is a stop not to be missed!

The Berbers are some of the friendliest and most hospitable people. In the remote villages of the south especially, people are very simple and genuine and will always try to make sure you feel welcome as a guest. Language may be a barrier, but smiles, gestures, food and, of course, that ubiquitous mint tea can make up for it!
