The Hidden Gems of MoroccoBy Jenny G
Morocco is an exotic blend of various cultures, colorful and chaotically crowded medinas, meandering pathways, awe-inspiring scenery, iconic monuments, and cosmopolitan cities. In Morocco, you can’t miss the following attractions.
Erg Chebbi is one of the largest series of sand dunes in Morocco formed by wind-blown sand. Camel trek the sweeping sand dunes in the Moroccan Sahara Desert enveloped by utter silence and a pleasant breeze. At nighttime, lie down on the velvety sand and gaze at the star-stricken skies.
Eclipsed by the dramatic peaks of the Rif Mountains, the gorgeous city is akin to a picturesque painting. Ramble in the cobblestone streets lined with bright blue houses, visit the scarlet Kasbah, and find your way through the bustling medina.
High Atlas Mountains
Locally known as ‘the Mountain of Mountains’, the North African mountain range offers extraordinary activities. Trek the jaw-dropping trails during summer and autumn, hunt for Jebel jewels and mingle with the Free People.
Built by Portuguese in the 18th-century, Essaouira is the most sought-after resort town. It’s crescent beach lures water sports enthusiasts from all over the world in hopes to indulge in world-class surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. While the coastal part brims with modern luxury, the historic heart ‘medina’ of the city oozes with olde-worlde charm.
The imperial city is an amalgamation of heritage sites, verdant gardens, densely packed medina, and the lingering scent of warm spices. Visit the many palaces and mosques, shop for souvenirs in souqs, and take a leisurely stroll at Jardin Majorelle. For more information on financial advice regarding traveling
