Within a 3 hour flight you can be whisked into the magnificent experiences and rainbow of colours that is Morocco. Whether you are visiting magnificent Marrakech, the beaches of Essaouira, historic Casablanca or the stunning Atlas mountains you'll struggle to find a place as fascinating as Morocco, a country as diverse and vibrant as it is vast. Proudly independent, its culture has been developed over centuries with strong influences from European, Arab and African sources.
Every town and resort has a medina or a souk where your senses will be hit be by an array of enticing spices and bright colours. The opportunity to haggle over the price of a huge assortment of goods from carpets to slippers is an experience that will long live in the memory.
Moroccan hotels vary from simple 3 star bed and breakfasts to luxury 5 star All Inclusive resorts. There is definitely something to suit families, couple and groups alike. For something unique why not try out a Moroccan Riad especially in Marrakech or Casablanca. A traditional Moroccan Riad was once the home of the wealthiest citizens, merchants and courtiers in the country and contains multiple stories that centre around an open air courtyard containing a fountain. Riads are definitely a part of travelling to Morocco and arguably no visit is complete without staying in one.
Morocco is not just about its atmospheric towns and cities and on the North Coast you will discover seemingly endless stretches of beachfront with the most popular being Agadir, Essaouira and the stunning Legzira Beach.
Without doubt one of the absolute highlights of a visit to Morocco is the chance to sample the local cuisine. With Arab, French, African and Mediterranean influences Moroccan food provides an absolute treat for all taste buds. Sit down for a tagine, a clay pot full of slow cooked meat, vegetables and spices with a side of traditional cous cous, and you will have a dining experience to live long in the memory. Those with a sweet tooth will also not be disappointed.
Moroccan nightlife is very chilled and laid back and the experience of sitting in a roof top bar overlooking the square in Marrakech whilst enjoying a cocktail is certainly not be missed. If you do want to party until the early hours then nightclubs are there to be enjoyed particularly in the beach resorts of Agadir and Essaouira.
