Morocco borders Algeria to the east and southeast, Western Sahara to the south, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the north. It is the only African country with coastal exposure to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Besides the transit flights landing at Casablanca, a lot of people really love visiting Morocco. The scenery, the food and the people and all so amazing. With this article, I hope to inspire you to visit Morocco, and patronize African tourism.
The Amazing Ait Ben Haddou
Ait Ben Haddou is considered a great example of Moroccan earthen clay architecture and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. This wonderful place is the Hollywood of Morocco and has been featured in Game Of Thrones. It is really amazing, roaming the streets and climbing to the top for the view!
The City That Offers Amazing Beach With Sea Food
Essaouira is located a few hours from Marrakesh on the Atlantic coast and is a popular beach destination for tourists. Be sure to visit the wonderful fish market in town, where all the small fishermen sell their day’s catch. Also, check out the small fish stalls nearby in the main square where you can enjoy fresh seafood grilled really cheap. The city offers a relaxed atmosphere, the sea air, and all the sea food or fresh fish.
The Diverse-city (diversity)
Speaking about the imperial Marrakesh here. Marrakesh is the fourth largest city in the Kingdom of Morocco. Due to the diversity, this city is the most eclectic city in the Moroccan Kingdom. The city offers a modern mix of Moroccan and international culture with the diversity of delicious international food. The famous Jemaa el-Fnaa square in Marrakesh’s Medina quarter, has tens of thousands of people at night eating, shopping, listening to bands, and watching magicians.
The Famous Mint Tea
Pots of mint tea are probably the substitute to bottles of beer, in morocco. The higher the teapot, the better; because there’s an art to pouring it. The bar or pub experience in Morocco is having this minty, sugary treat and sitting in the shops watching soccer with the locals, amazing!
Really Friendly People
Moroccans are easy to talk to and love making small talk, so it’s easy to learn more about the country and the culture through relaxed conversation. However, in your interactions with people, you should always be patient and kind. Moroccan people are generally welcoming, hospitable and friendly. Tourism is a major industry here!
