Tips for the vacation
Take the time to explore the different places. Morocco is a country with many facets and it is worth taking enough time for the trip. Just don’t forget your camera to capture all the beautiful impressions!
Also, when packing your suitcase, keep in mind that Morocco can get quite hot during the day. So pack light summer clothes. However, if you’re planning a visit to the mountains or desert, you should also pack a sweater for cooler evenings.
Explore the largest mountain range in North Africa: on the High Atlas you will experience nature that will simply delight you, with small mountain villages and an almost unforgettable view! As another highlight, the Sahara offers you a sandy landscape that is unique. At night you can experience the starry sky there and maybe even come across nomad camps.
If you want to explore Moroccan metropolises, be sure to start with Marrakech. The city is especially characterized by its many markets, and haggling for souvenirs is an experience in itself! Other famous cities are the capital Rabat, Casablanca with its impressive mosque or Fes with the oldest mosque in the world.
