WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT MOROCCO PART 1.

Updated: Apr 29, 2019

There’s just something so irresistible about Morocco. Whether it’s the contrast of the wide open desert with the labyrinthine passages of the Medina or the allure of the coast whipped by Atlantic winds, we couldn’t say. What has become clear to us though is the enriching effect that a unforgettable holiday in Morocco has on the soul. Submerging your senses and gaining a new perspective; that is the power of Morocco.



Here are the reasons why we think you should still put a visit to Morocco on your travel list, sooner rather than later:


THE ARCHITECTURE IS STUNNING



You’ve probably drooled over it on Instagram more than a few times. But trust us when we tell you that the distinctive architecture found in Morocco is even better in real life.

Ornate geometric patterns, thousands upon thousands of intricately placed tiles, and majestic archways - the cities of Fez, Marrakech, Meknes, Rabat, and Casablanca host some of the best examples of Islamic and Moorish architecture, and each will captivate you.

A great place to start? Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Ben Youssef Madrasa in Marrakech, and the gates to Fez.


IT SUITS BUDGET BACKPACKERS AND THOSE LOOKING FOR LUXURY



Marrakech, the most popular city for tourists in the country, captures how well Morocco is suited to travellers of all budgets.

It’s possible to stay in a basic budget hostel, eat in the souks, spend a little on coffee or tea, and discover the city without any guides, transport or very little money. However, it is also extremely popular to stay in a 5 star hotel or riad, indulge in a luxurious spa, spend lots on food, tours, meals and experiences.

And the best thing? Travelling on a budget or spending a lot more cash are both absolutely viable and enjoyable within Morocco as the country is well set-up for both types of tourism.



IT HAS ACCOMMODATION LIKE NO OTHER 



If there is one singular reason which should make you come to Morocco, then it’s the spectacular and wholly unique accommodation. A riad, meaning "garden" in Arabic, is a beautiful, ornate and serene oasis of cool calm in contrast to the medinas in the city. All have a central courtyard, often with a small pool or fountain, with guest rooms dotted around the various floors, and are filled with delightful design features and decoration all over. They really do capture the spirit and aesthetic of that wonderful Moroccan architecture.

Staying in a riad is, for us, mandatory for any visitor to Morocco as they are simply wonderful.
