MOROCCO TAILOR-MADE TRAVEL
Morocco is a North African country bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the West and the Mediterranean Sea to the North. Its neighbour is Algeria on the East, Mauritania on the south, and it faces Spain on its northern border. Morocco enjoys a mild climate all year long.
A country boasting a thousand colours and secrets, famed for its dizzying cultural influences and fun adventures, a patchwork gorged with ancient cities, palm trees, epic mountain ranges and deserts, and warm hospitality, Morocco is a true gem of North Africa.
It is an exciting place for travellers in search of wanderlust and a natural wonder, carpeting the Northern part of the continent like the richly coloured and patterned mats you will find in the local shops. The picture-perfect landscape is unique and provides different sceneries. The High Atlas, the Rif region and the many sun kissed ranges stretching as far out as the eye can see and leading to desert oases are simply breath-taking, with a sky so clear at night that one can watch the million stars glistening above, and the pristine beaches on the Mediterranean coast.
Alongside to beautiful nature are the colourful medinas, Morocco’s most exciting cities and the best place to get lost: discover the medina maze of Fez, the carnivalesque live shows of the Djemaa el-Fna square in Marrakesh, and the desert medinas protected by Kasbahs.
It is a country with a hundred different faces and sounds. Its mixed Arab and Berber population forms a strong national identity, but there is also a keen determination among younger crowd to take the best of its traditions and history and to create a new pattern, ready to welcome new people looking for adventure and zing.
Every foodie out there should include Morocco on their must-go-to destinations list; the country counts Berber, Arab, French, Spanish and Portuguese cultures among its influences, thus creating one of the world’s most diverse cuisine, which combines sweet and savoury spices. Another highlight is the renowned mint tea, made of Chinese gunpowder green tea, fresh spearmint leaves and a lot of sugar. Symbolizing Moroccan hospitality, one cannot leave this country without trying it!
