MOROCCO MOST VISITED PLACES
The old city of Fez has one overwhelming and awe-inspiring attraction, the behemoth medina. A UNESCO World Heritage site measuring an astonishing 2.4 square miles, it is one of the most well-preserved old cities in the Arab-Muslim world. One might think the world’s largest car-free urban area would be a breath of fresh air for pedestrians, but you’re in for a shock and a treat. The Fez medina is one of world’s most complex mazes with treats and treasures down every little side alley. People do get lost here (often!), but thankfully there is always a local on hand to point the way to tourist site, your hotel or to the tannery (a site not to be missed).
The Sahara desert
The Erg Chebbi sand dunes on the western flank of the vast Sahara Desert are spectacular. Wave upon wave of orange dunes, which reach up to 250m in height, roll out into the distance creating endless patterns of light and shade and the most spectacular panoramic vistas. The best way to experience the desert is to take an epic camel trek across the rolling dunes and spend a night at a remote Berber camp under the most incredible blanket of stars.
Have you ever wondered where Hollywood gets some of those perfectly arid desert scenes from? Chances are some of your favorite desert classics have passed through Morocco at some point during their filming. It’s a country that’s been welcoming Hollywood directors since the ‘60s, and the town of Ouarzazate has been at the center of it all. From here you can take tours through the sets and locales of famous blockbuster hits: Cleopatra, Kingdom of Heaven, Sahara, Lawrence of Arabia and even the current filming of the HBO series Game of Thrones.
No trip to Morocco is complete without tackling the city at the heart of Moroccan tourism, the intensity of which will overwhelm you (it’s meant to). Marrakech contains the modern soul of Morocco, the countries most intriguing sites and museums, and the fiercest medina of them all. Don’t forget to bring your penchant for haggling because you’re going to need it. Marrakech appears to unfold before your eyes every dusk on the main square, Jemaa el-Fnaa (the assembly of trespassers), a UNESCO site which has to be seen to be believed. I met a traveling couple on a rooftop bar overlooking the square who claimed they went to Jemaa el-Fnaa every night of their vacation in order to “people-watch.” “We can’t get enough,” she said to me.
The enchanting coastal town of Essaouira has an 18th century, fortified medina. The town has now extended beyond its ancient walls, but is still small enough to explore on foot and any city gate leads to the medina, so you’re unlikely to get lost. There's a broad, sandy beach in front of the medina and plenty of cafés and restaurants with outside terraces for al fresco dining. Blue doors and window frames abound in Essaouira, as do art galleries, jewellery stalls and other handicraft stalls. Activities on offer in Essaouira include horse riding and wind surfing. Laid back Essaouira is the perfect place to enjoy some rest and relaxations after exploring Morocco's bustling Imperial Cities.
Ait Benhaddou is an ancient ksar situated along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech. Perched on a hill beside the Ouarzazate River Ait Benhaddou boasts some beautiful kasbahs in Morocco, some of which are still inhabited today. Granted UNESCO World Heritage listing, the site had been the setting for many films including Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator.
High up in the Rif Mountains the picturesque town of Chefchaouen, which was was originally a Berber post, has a beautiful white-walled medina with distinctive blue-hued buildings. The main square is the heart of Chefchaouen and there is a beautifully preserved 18th century kasbah, a central mosque and cafes with authentic Moroccan style menus. The bustling market offers a mix of traditional Moroccan items and tourist souvenirs and it's a great place to buy kilims.
