Morocco Travel Tips & Suggestions

Marrakesh is one of the most beautiful cities in Morocco. Djami el Fenaa, the main tourist square, is quite a spectacle at night with performers and traditional stalls everywhere. Marrakesh is a fantastic place to get Oriental furniture -- their stuff is good quality and if you haggle well you can get good offers. …
I only stayed in Casablanca for one night so I didn't get to see much, but I felt that it wasn't all that. Al Hasan II Mosque on the coast is quite a sight though.
Once you get there, run to your hostel then breathe! Find a cheap guide -- we paid 10 euros for the whole day and he took us for tea with his family! Don't buy anything in Tangier, by the way. Wait until another town.
Fes is a great city. Traditional Moroccan goods, pottery, and leather in particular are great there.
Essaouira is gorgeous, the beach is huge, and there are plenty of tourists (if you want there to be) to feel safe. It's a really nice break from the hassle of Morocco but there are no fewer shops or market stalls. Restaurants are a little pricey but only because I was on a 10£ a day budget! Haggle for the rooms when …
Rabat, Morocco's often-skipped capital city, is a bustling, modern port city located on the west coast of the country and about three hours from the far more touristy city of Marrakesh (which many people mistakenly think is the capital of Morocco). Rabat is not without its charms; the Medina and markets are a lively …
Fes is a sprawling maze of a city and an absolutely unforgettable travel destination. About five hours south of Marrakesh and a couple of hours inland from the Atlantic coast, this beast of a city is just waiting to be explored. When visiting Fes, be prepared for one thing -- you will get lost! It's inevitable if you …
Agadir is the main sea resort of Morocco. The city was primarily developed after a terrible earthquake destroyed the city in the sixties. The city follows an occidental design, and very little of the old Moroccan quarters remain to date. New resorts are built all the time and new clubs and casinos abound, so make …
The name Casablanca fills most people's imagination with images of an exciting, exotic place full of intrigue and romance, mainly because of the movie of the same name. Casablanca might not be quite as exciting as people's imaginations lead them to believe, but it can still be a cool place to look around for a night or …
Chefchaouen is one of those places that gets under your skin; you'll find yourself thinking about it years after you've left. Full of winding narrow alleyways and steep stairways leading up the hillside, Chefchaouen is full of character and has an atmosphere that's unique and unforgettable. Located in the hills in …
Merzouga is a small town in the deep south of Morocco, at the Algerian border. It used to be a fortified military outpost during the French colony period. Now it mainly relies on tourism. All year long, buses unload tourists in front of the famous pink dunes, before the next attraction on the tour list. If you really …
Essaouira is the second most visited city in Morocco. After years of quietness it has recently gained a lot of interest due to some celebrities finding this sleepy Moroccan spot. Many developers have now invested in Essaouira and renovated old buildings in the historical city. It has very old and nice enclosed quarters …
Tangier is one of those places you either love or hate; it's intense, in your face, and sometimes ugly, but it's always interesting and fast paced! Stepping off a ferry from Spain into Tangier's port can be a daunting experience, but once you get past the touts offering to "guide" you to your Tangier hostel and people …
