I have been to Morocco a couple of times and I always leave wanting to go back. It’s so easy to get there from Europe but it feels like you’re a world away.
Michael Turtle – TIME TRAVEL TURTLE
If you look at Morocco on a map, you’ll realise how close it is to countries in Western Europe. Don’t think that just because you’re on a ‘European holiday’ that you can’t pop in for a visit.Morocco is a blend of Africa and the Middle East – and there’s also a bit of influence from Europe as well. You’ll find impressive mosques, ancient marketplaces, street performers and boutique accommodation.
If you’re looking for a short holiday, then heading to one of Morocco’s cities like Marrakech or Fez is a perfect break. But if you spend more time in the country, you’ll discover a fascinating culture with glorious art and architecture.
My stories cover various parts of Morocco so have a look through them and you’ll see different areas to explore.
Morocco’s capital city is not normally the first place travellers think of visiting. It just doesn’t have the old world allure as some of the ancient medinas, does it? But don’t let that turn you off. There’s still a lot to see here.
