Morocco is fantastically different in culture and traditions from those found just across the Straits of Gibraltar, in Europe. After a day exploring the wonders of the country, it is easy to find somewhere comfortable, quiet and private to rest and recuperate in, by staying in one of the numerous luxury Morocco hotels or resorts.
Top Things about Morocco
While Moroccan cities and towns are full of fascinating culture and exotic people, the countryside offers everything, from desert scenery to mountains and beaches. There are activity holidays that include mountain walking and hiking, a trip on the Oriental Desert Express train across the Sahara desert, water sports or any number of other activities, from skiing to horse riding. The more daring visitors may want to try white water rafting in the Ahansal wadi or Assif Melloul or caving through some of Morocco's underground network of passages and caverns.
With a culture as vibrant and diverse as that of Morocco, there is little wonder that the ancient palaces and museums that scatter the country are filled with fascination and wonder. Good examples are the Majorelle Garden and Islamic Art Museum.
Best Cities to Visit
From Casablanca to the ancient imperial cities of Marrakesh and Fes, Morocco is filled with historical and beautiful surprises.
Casablanca is the cosmopolitan and financial heart of Morocco, a modern side to the country that emphasises art and culture, as well as European influences. Marrakesh, one of the top destinations in Morocco, is bustling city, full of life and excitement. A true taste of Morocco, it is home to snake charmers, donkey carts and traditional cures for everything imaginable.
African culture is an invigorating experience, filled with colour and life, both of which can be experienced to the full in the cities of Fes and Agadir.
Accommodation in Morocco ranges from cheap to luxury. Tourist resorts and comfortable hotels in Morocco are to be found in city centres and the countryside.
