Morocco has every reason to be considered a heavenly paradise. Visiting this North African country will provide you with a vacation experience that includes culture, history, adventure and wilderness. Morocco is filled with interesting museums, mouth-watering cuisines, majestic palaces and stunning natural landscapes.

Trekking enthusiasts can visit the High Atlas and Rif mountains, while those who are looking for a more personal and quieter experience with nature can go to the less visited peaks. In addition, you will not be lacking in seaside relaxation, as Morocco has beaches that line the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts. The beaches along Agadir and Casablanca are great for family swimming.

Explore the Sahara Desert via a camel ride or a 4×4 tour. The latter will take you quickly through the sandy roads to the villages; while the camel ride is more leisurely, so the desert details can be better appreciated. You may choose to stay for a night in the desert and sleep under the starry sky if you like, then you wake up to an extraordinary sunrise.

Marrakesh, Rabat, Fez and Meknes are the imperial cities and all have been the capital of Morocco at some point in history. Each has its own churches, palaces, mosques and museums where you can take a look into the Moroccan history. There are also riads to visit in Morocco; these were traditional houses or palaces that have been converted into hotels with magnificent architecture.

For your shopping spree, Casablanca, Fez and Tangier are the most popular places to blow your money on things that you can get your hands on. The bazaars have leather goods, ceramics, carpets and baskets to sell and some jewelry, too. You are allowed to bargain with the artisan or the bazaar owner and get a discount.

Moroccan cuisine includes stews and couscous (North African grains made from durum or hard wheat); and prepared with chicken, fish or lamb that are raised locally. Mint tea accompanies all meals, unless you want it otherwise.

Public steam baths are one interesting way of experiencing Moroccan history. While people bathe in their homes now, in the previous years they used the public steam baths. Visiting these places is near to going to a modern day spa.

The rich culture and heritage of Morocco can be best experienced when your visit coincides with one of Moroccan day or period of celebrations. Music, dance and storytelling can be expected in any of these festivals.

As you move from one Moroccan region to another, you will discover more of the country’s history and have knowledge on what influence the Roman Empire, the French, the Spanish settlers and the Berbers have had on Morocco.
