Morocco Travel Guides

Morocco is certainly no stranger to tourism. In fact, destinations like Marrakesh have quickly become some of the world’s most visited cities right up there with Rome and London. However, just because parts of Morocco are littered with tourists doesn’t mean that there aren’t places to get away. In the Rif and Atlas mountains, travellers will still find places of reprieve and peace from the rat race of the everyday tourist. In general, travel through Morocco is pretty standard. However, be prepared for the challenges that it brings: especially the touts and vendors who seem to enjoy a fight more than a sale. My advice: get out into the villages of Morocco as much as you can. It is here, away from the big cities, that you’ll find the true heart and soul of the Moroccan people.

  1. The last time I went to Morocco was 20 years ago with my parents and we didn’t venture outside of the hotel complex! What a waste. Your article has made me want to go back and this time see the real Morocco, I will take your advice and get out into the villages. Thank you
