Morocco is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, with over 1 million Berbers living alongside Arabs and Africans. It’s also one of only two countries in Africa that don’t border any other nation (the other being Algeria). With so much to see and do in this beautiful country, I decided to spend more than six months exploring its treasures from top to bottom.
The Country is incredibly rich in Culture and History
Morocco is a country rich in culture and history, but it is also the only country in Africa with a coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. And that is just one reason why I fell in love with Morocco: its people are so warm, friendly and welcoming. They are always happy to see you!
There are so many things to do here—from hiking through beautiful mountains to learning about Moroccan art from local artists at museums or markets. There are also plenty of opportunities for adventure sports like kayaking through reservoirs or skiing down mountainsides (the latter being especially popular among foreigners).
It is the Perfect place to Shop for unique Souvenirs
In the souks, you can find an array of handmade goods and souvenirs that are not available anywhere else in the world. For example, in Sidi Kaouki, there is a shop where they make silver jewelry out of traditional Moroccan patterns. The patterns are so beautiful that they have been used to decorate many buildings throughout Morocco and even on American currency! If you are looking for something more unusual than silver bracelets or jewelry boxes, there are also plenty of shops selling pottery bowls made with clay from Sidi Aicha.
These bowls come in many different sizes and shapes—some as small as your thumb or larger than a dinner plate! You will be amazed at how unique each one looks compared with all its other counterparts around town. And if none of these options seem quite right for your tastes yet…that’s okay! Many shops offer custom orders so if no one else has what YOU want just ask politely; chances are someone will help put together something truly special just for YOU!
The Food is Beyond Delicious
The food is beyond delicious. Moroccan food is very different from the food in other countries, which makes it even more special. It is very affordable and diverse, with fresh ingredients that you can find at your local market or farmers’ market.
The colors of the dishes are also very vibrant and colorful—you won’t see any brown rice on a menu anywhere else! And if you are into authenticity, Morocco has some of the best traditional dishes around tagines (stews), tajines (stewed meats), shawarma sandwiches…the list goes on!
There are so Many beautiful, Instagram-Worthy Places to Visit
Morocco is a place where you can find a mixture of traditional and modern architecture all over the country. You will see beautiful old buildings, and then you will also pass by modern constructions that are designed to look like traditional architecture. It is such an interesting mix! If you are visiting Morocco on your own, it is not hard to get lost in this beautiful country. There are so many natural sights for tourists to visit: mountains and valleys, desert scenery (especially during sunrise), oases filled with palm trees…the list goes on!
There are some amazing boutique hotels and accommodations in Morocco that are perfect for couples looking for something special but don’t have time or money to travel far from home. In fact, I even stayed at one of these places while working on my last trip there! By staying at one of these unique spots we were able to enjoy our stay even more than if we’d stayed elsewhere – they offer everything from butler service through private pools overlooking cliffs to rooftop views overlooking cities below…you name it!
