Essentials in Morocco
Marrakech: Although Rabat is the capital of Morocco, Marrakech is the city that has captured the hearts of the world. Djemma El-Fna and the Medina of Marrakech are a must for any visitor to the city. Especially in the evenings when the main square says goodbye to all the merchants and spice sellers and hello to street entertainers and food carts. It's simple amazing.
Tangier: If you're looking for a place in Morocco that offers both beach and city, Tangier is your place. It's located in the northern part of the country facing the Atlantic Ocean. Europe and Africa meet here so it's no wonder that artists, writers, poets and musicians all meet here. The best beaches are a short way away from the city so take advantage of your Morocco rent car while you're here.
Sahara: A desert trip to the Sahara is a once in a lifetime experience. It's simply amazing. The huge sand dunes, the camels, the setting sun over the Moroccan desert… there is no shortage of agencies offering tours either. Choose from a camel expedition, a tour in all-terrain vehicles or learn to sand surf! Compare the tour operators though, and rely on reviews to avoid scams.
