Wherever in the world you travel to, it will always be a rewarding and exciting experience. If the place you are travelling to is abundant with an opulent religious, historical and cultural heritage, with a variety of places to see and activities to indulge in, then your stay will be even more enjoyable and memorable. Morocco is such a place, with so much to see and do in numerous locations spread all over the country from Casablanca to Marrakech. Here are a few facts that will make you want to visit Morocco during your next holiday;
The Mesmerising View
It will be hard to miss the beauty of the scenery in whichever city you end up in during your trip. From the intricate architectural features of the Saadian tombs to the view of the setting sun against the golden sand seen during Sahara desert tours, you will be warmly welcomed by awe-inspiring sights anywhere you go in Morocco.
The country’s main cities are rich with a number of interesting sites that have been popular tourist attractions for many years. Excursions such as Sahara desert tours are offered in packages inclusive of camel rides and overnight camping which will provide you a good opportunity to further explore the Moroccan desert.
The Best of Every World
The uniqueness of the Moroccan experience has much to do with the fact that the country, being situated in Northern Africa and visited by merchants and explorers from all over the world through the centuries, has been influenced by a mixture of the Arabic, European and Sub-Saharan cultures. A visit to one of the many museums, raids and palaces will give you a feel of how each visit by a group of explorers and each invasion by vandals and captors have shaped the history and existing culture of the land. You will also witness a diversity of cuisines varying from traditional Moroccan dishes such as tagine, couscous and the infamous Moroccan mint tea to their continental counterparts such as French, Spanish and African dishes.
From Hot to Cold
The country experiences both hot and cold weather. Depending on the region that you are travelling to, you will be able to encounter temperatures as high as 35 degrees Celsius to as low as 5 degrees Celsius. Morocco is home to diverse geographical features varying from scorching hot deserts in the Sahara to snow-capped mount peaks in the Atlas Mountains. The coastal regions adopt a climate common to the Mediterranean – dry and warm in the summer and wet and breezy in the winter. More towards the inland regions the weather can become a bit more extreme. However, Morocco experiences relatively stable and predictable weather conditions which makes it a great holiday destination throughout the year.
