It’s no surprise that many consider Morocco one of the most magical and enchanting countries to visit. It’s but a stone’s throw from the UK and if you haven’t had the chance to go yet, watch this video and you may find yourself wondering why you haven’t book cheap flights to Marrakesh sooner.
5 minutes to show off a country. It’s a bit short, don’t you think? Especially for a country so visually stimulating as Morocco, from the landscapes to the light, colours and people. It’s a short film but this video no doubt gives us the urge to see more and perhaps at a bit of a slower pace.
This isn’t director Vincent Urban’s first attempt at film making. A quick glance at his Vimeo page will tell you he loves to travel, and takes his camera with him every step of the way. Videos from South America, New York, Munich and more. About his Moroccan adventure Vincent says,
Early 2013, we had a little ride with our Landrover once again. A shorter trip this time, we tried to discover most of Moroccos versatile landscapes in just 3 weeks, from the Coast to the forest regions of the Middle Atlas, from the hectic Medinas of Fés and Marrakech to the high mountain ranges of the High Atlas, and finally to the dunes of the Sahara Desert.
Everything: the mint tea, the camels, the restless souks, the calls to prayer from the Muezzin, the night sky above the desert, surfing in the cold Atlantic waters, the Atlas mountains, the blue cities of the Chefchaouen city in Rif, the Berber Macaques and snake charmers in Marrakesh’s Jemaa-el-Fna square.
Like the music? It’s “Mechanism” from Poppy Ackroyd.
On top of the usual airlines that fly to Morocco like British Airways, Royal Air Maroc and KLM, you can catch flights onboard a handful of low cost airlines as well. easyJet flies to Marrakesh and Agadir while Ryanair touches down in Fez.
