Morocco is a beautiful country in the Northern part of Africa. Morocco is the home of the world famous Sahara desert; with a lots of beautiful sites to visit. It’s a land that fuses the styles of Europe and sub-Sahara.
Everywhere in Morocco, you’ll discover elegant riad (traditional Moroccan homes with courtyards) and vast kasbahs, all adorned with intricate Islamic filigrees and beautiful arabesque motifs. They have lots of spicy foods packed with cinnamon and dried fruits and mint tea. We bring to you below, the interesting reasons why Morocco should be your next destination.
The Sahara Desert
Most people choose to travel to Morocco, because of the famous Sahara Desert. A desert of 3.6 million square miles, which occupies about 30% of Africa’s landscape. Riding camels over the dunes during either the sunrise or the sunset are mostly what peopledo in the sahara, camping out under the glorious desert skies, riding in 4X4’s or ATVs, and dune-boarding.
Mint Tea and Pastries
Moroccan food is incredible and unique, and of the things on should go for, is the Moroccan mint tea and the tasty pastries sold at different places. Although mostbhotels serve them for breakfast, making for a wonderful start to your day.
Hassan II Mosque
While Morocco has many mosques, this one is regarded as the most beautiful with its impressive construction and the incoming mist from the surrounding ocean. To see it in action, visit on a Sunday morning when people come to pray.
This place was created by none other than Jacques Majorelle, the French painter. It later became the home of world-famous designer extraordinaire, Yves Saint-Laurent. The garden here is a stunning oasis in the middle of busy Marrakech, one that holds a surreal amount of beauty in the form of exotic plants and rich oriental brilliance.
The traditional style of homes in Morocco are so beautifully different. Kasbah is a type of house style here, but other styles of buildings are completely Moroccan and make for the perfect backdrop to any photo.
The impressive yet imposing orange rocks here make this canyon a favorite climbing spot. If you’re afraid of heights though, it’s still worth a visit even without a climb. You’ll find a market there with handicrafts for sale from the locals.
Known to many as the namesake and setting of Michael Curtiz’s 1942 magnum opus (entitled just Casablanca), the city of Casablanca still reigns as the country’s largest.
Casablanca is a port city and commercial hub in western Morocco, fronting the Atlantic Ocean. The city’s French colonial legacy is seen in its downtown Mauresque architecture, a blend of Moorish style and European art deco. Standing partly over the water, the enormous Hassan II Mosque, completed in 1993, has a 210m minaret topped with lasers directed toward Mecca
These are just some of the interesting reasons why Morocco should be in your list of destinations.
