Mediterranean sun, rugged terrains and friendly locals – this is just one face of Morocco, a country steeped in scenic landscapes, with plenty of exciting things to do and places to explore. Don’t believe us? Here are 11 photos that will convince you that Morocco is THE place to be:
1) Rick’s Cafe – Casablanca
If you have watched the iconic movie Casablanca, then you’re sure to find this place familiar. Fall in love all over again at Rick’s Café just like Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman did.
And don’t forget to enjoy a romantic, candlelit dinner with the best seafood and wine you’d ever find.
3) The Atlas Mountains
Nothing can beat a trek through the Atlas Mountain terrain.
Or a long drive.
4) Tinmel Mosque
Marvel at the beautiful architectural monument perched atop the modern village of Tin Mal.
Tajine – A Moroccan dish
Ever fancied eating out of a pot?
Gorge on Tajine, a famous Moroccan delicacy named after the pot in which it is cooked.
Witness the best of Moroccan craftsmanship.
Gnawa musicians playing music on drums, colourful carpets and bright-blue fishing boats will welcome you into this quaint, laidback, peaceful, seaside resort town
Put your feet up and enjoy the sunshine.
Experience the life of a nomad in the Sahara Desert. A desert tour might just do the trick.
Tower of Hassan – Rabat
An incomplete mosque can be as beautiful as a fully constructed one. Intended to be the largest in the world, the sheer size of the mosque will leave you speechless.
Get transported to a totally different world. Pretty and quirky with various shades of blue, Chefchaouen is one of the prettiest towns in Morocco.
