A rising star in North Africa, Morocco continues to amaze all travelers. After an Egypt tour, I couldn’t get enough of the heat, and found myself in Morocco after a few weeks’ time. The warm country influenced by many cultures offers a long coastline to the Atlantic ocean, an endless desert to roam and the High Atlas mountains as a marvelous backdrop. To top the geographical location, the mixed cultural heritage chases you wherever you go.
Wrapped up in history, mystery, and charm, Morocco’s city of Marrakech is a major economic centre and is home to mosques, palaces and gardens. The Medina is a solidly crammed, enclosed medieval metropolitan dating back to the Berber Empire with puzzling backstreets where flourishing souks sell traditional textiles, pottery and jewellery. It’s not Morocco’s capital city, that’s Rabat. It’s not the country’s largest city, that’s Casablanca. It’s not even the African nation’s oldest city, that’s Fes. But Marrakech takes victory over other Moroccan metropolises as the informal cultural hub.
