Why You Should Make Morocco Your Next Holiday Destination!

May 8, 2024

Situated at the crossroads of Africa and Europe, Morocco is known for its vibrant experiences and rich culture. From the bustling markets of Marrakesh to the serene beauty of the Sahara Desert, there’s something for everyone here. Here are my top three reasons you should make Morocco your next vacation destination.

Delicious cuisine

Moroccan cuisine is known for its intricate blend of spices and aromatic appeal. From warm and flavoursome Harira soup to traditional and authentic Tagines, it is the infusion of various cultures, such as the Amazigh, Moorish, and Mediterranean culinary traditions that contribute to Moroccan food's complexity and richness. And if you happen to be there on a Friday, you are bound to indulge in Couscous, a staple Moroccan dish that blends sweet and savoury flavours and is eaten with family and friends.

Capturing architecture 

Morocco's architecture is captivating, reflecting the country's rich history and cultural heritage. Islamic architecture predominates in Morocco and is characterized by intricate tilework or zellige and high minarets with beautiful geometric patterns. The ancient walled medinas, which are densely populated urban centres with narrow, maze-like streets, bustling markets or souks, and historic buildings, are a testament to Morocco's rich past. The traditional Moroccan houses known as Riads are particularly charming, built around a central courtyard or garden, providing a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of the medina.

Snow, Sand, and Sea 

Morocco specializes in its diverse landscapes and climates, offering something for everyone. The Sahara Desert in the south boasts scorching heat and stunning desert scenery. 


Inland areas such as Ifrane in the High Atlas Mountains experience cooler temperatures and even snow in winter, earning it the nickname 'the Switzerland of Morocco.'

You'll enjoy a Mediterranean climate along the northern coast with mild winters and hot summers. Tangier, located at the northern tip of Morocco, is a fascinating city where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea. Its unique location at the convergence of two continents and two seas makes it a captivating destination for those seeking adventure and cultural exploration.
