Whether you are on a family trip, romantic vacation or riding solo, a trip to Morocco will always be worth your while. It should definitely be on your bucket list of places to visit.
FEAST ON TRADITIONAL MOROCCAN CUISINE
Enjoy Moroccan food served in Tagine. The Tagine refers to both the conical-shaped dish and the food that’s cooked inside it, which is usually a blend of delicious sweet and savory flavors. The dish is served with round bread.
VISIT THE BLUE VILLAGE OF CHEFCHAOUEN
This a popular tourist destination because of its proximity to Tangier, a major city in North Western Morocco. Also, it offers many native handicrafts that are not available elsewhere in Morocco, such as wool garments and woven blankets. The blue village also houses a marijuana plantation which is the key source of income for the residents and attracts tourist from all over the globe. Although the production or sale is illegal in Morocco, its consumption is quite common in Chefchaouen.
VISIT THE SOUKS OF MARRAKECH
Haggle at the Medina market to get the best prices on Moroccan artefacts. Keep in mind that the process can be a bit tedious, so be prepared for an adventurous and exhausting experience.
EXPLORE THE MUSÉE DE MARRAKECH
The museum holds the rich history of Morocco. The highlight of the museum is the central internal courtyard which has cedar archways, stained-glass windows, intricately painted door panels and lots of Zellij tile work. The museum is basically a collection of Moroccan art.
STARGAZE AT ERG CHEBBI
The Sahara Desert is a magical place to spend a few nights. Erg Chebbi is known for its fossils and is a landscape of endless dunes. Most travelers journey into the desert at Erg Chebbi by camel, just in time to catch the sunset and gaze at the stars at night. The locals talk you through the constellations, giving you their Berber names as you gaze into the incredibly clear skies.
VISIT THE MOSQUE
The Hassan II mosque is a point of interest and landmark building in Casablanca. This modern mosque (completed in 1993) has interior details which took about 10,000 artisans to complete. The Intricately carved marble pieces, vibrant mosaics, and Zellige tile details all pay tribute to traditional Islamic architecture while still feeling contemporary at the same time.

TAKE A STEAM BATH
Take a steam bath in the Hammam (public steam bath). The Hammam is a Moroccan rite of passage. In the past when there were few private bathrooms Hammams were social meeting places where people could come to bathe and chat. Now there are fewer Hammam which exists to give cultural insight and chance for the best cleansing and exfoliation experiences of your life.
