Morocco is a diverse country filled with majestic palaces, exciting museums, mouth-watering cuisine and it encompasses a vast expanse of stunning natural landscapes. You can fill your heart’s desire when you visit Morocco.
Here are some of the reasons listed out to visit Morocco
There are beautiful spots to trek in Moroccos, like the Rif Mountains, High Atlas Mountains, Middle Atlas Mountains, and Anti-Atlas Mountains. These ranges are located in the northern portion of Morocco, and they are encompassed with greenery, forests, and caves. People do not visit the Middle and Anti-Atlas Mountains as much as the High Atlas, so they provide a serene more personal experience with nature.
With beaches along both the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts, there is no shortage of seaside relaxation. The Mediterranean coast has beaches that are rockier, and the sea is also rougher, many people choose not to swim here, but the views are beautiful. The most popular beaches typically have great facilities within easy reach, and some destinations, such as Essaouira, are perfect for lovers of water sports.
- The Imperial Cities
Marrakesh, Fez, Rabat, and Meknes are home to palaces, mosques, churches, and museums that offer a glimpse into the history of Morocco. Hiring a tour guide to make sure you can navigate through the Medinas is a good idea. The medinas in these cities are crowded and confusing so with a tour guide, and you can navigate without being overwhelmed by the vendors selling goods.
Riads are traditional houses or palaces that have gorgeous interior gardens. Many roads have been turned into hotels. If you have accommodations elsewhere, make it a point to take a look at some of the grander riads, that have splendid architecture.
The Sahara Desert is in the south of the Anti-Atlas Mountains where you can opt to take a camel tour. There are quad tours that quickly take you over the sandy roads through the desert villages, and there are also tours that are slower more leisurely camel rides that allow you to appreciate the beauty of the desert. If you choose to camp in the desert, you can expect to fall asleep below an expansive starry sky and wake up to a stunning desert sunrise.
Depending on when and where you visit, you can expect to find music, dance, and traditional storytelling. You can plan your vacation to coincide with one of Morocco’s festivals, and it is a great way to experience the rich heritage and culture in this North African country.
- Steam Baths
Nowadays, people bathe in the privacy of their own homes, but visiting a public steam bath is still an exciting way to experience a piece of the country’s history. It is, in many ways, similar to attending a modern spa.
- Exquisite Architecture in Morocco
The cultural diversity of Morocco is reflected in the range of architectural beauties that can be found all across the country. Some of Morocco’s most beautiful buildings include the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, the Saadian Tombs in Marrakesh, the Grand Mosque in Tangier, and the Mosque and the University of al Quaraouiyine in Fes.
