10 things to do in Morocco

Morocco, a meeting place for holidaymakers and landscape lovers, both arid and exotic, offers its visitors many surprises! A stay in Morocco would not be complete if you don't take a short stroll to some of the natural and historical sites that give this wonderful country its reputation.

10 things to do in Morocco - Morocco

1. Visit Marrakech

Marrakech is a subtle blend of colour and spicy scents whose exotic smells are only slightly softened by the wind of the sea breezing gently through the palm trees. On one side of the city you have sand dunes blushing in the setting sun, majestic palaces and the souks adorned with red, yellow and orange. On the other you'll find displays of warm colours, oases of greenery watered by small streams or even man-made features, such as one of the extensive golf courses.

2. The city of Tangier

Tangier is an unmissable destination in Morocco. A stay would not be complete without a tour around the edge of Tangier, which shelters a magnificent bay opposite the Straits of Gibraltar. The object of many conquerors since antiquity, Tangier has become a cosmopolitan crossroads which is home to many historical treasures such as the Medina of Tangier.
