kasbah in dades valley, morocco When you travel to Morocco the best places to visit include the imperial cities of Marrakech, Fes and Meknes. This is where you find the old towns (Medinas) with their wonderful bazaars, palaces and bustling town squares.

Morocco is also famous for its beaches and some of the best seaside towns are on the Atlantic coast, they include Essaouira, Tangier and Asilah. Morocco is also not short on natural beauty. You can hire a camel and trek through the Sahara; climb North Africa's highest peak in the Atlas Mountains; or stay in a traditional Kasbah (pictured here) in the fascinating Dades Valley.

Luckily Morocco is small enough and has a decent local transport network, so you're able to see a variety of towns and sights in just one week.

Hi everyone !!!! First let me introduce my self. Iam a Moroccan teacher of English aged 27. I have joined this website to have as many mates as possible and to exchange as much knowlege as i can. So people from all walks of life are welcomed to discover what a country like Morocco inherits. Every country has its own heritage of which it is proud. No doubt, like others, some Moroccan cities are worth visiting because of the different historical as well as traditional aspects they retain. So any one who feels curious to learn about this country as far as tourism is concerned, he or she can only write to me on here. Now i still have nothing much more to say than the brief image of What Morocco may look like but only saying goodbye to all the poeple on this website and telling them to enjoy their time to the fullest. feel free to email me teacherjaouad@hotmail.fr

Hi guys, iv just come back from morocco and its a lovely peaceful place. Fez is very nice but makesure you leave time to explore the streets yourself, which maybe difficult if you’re going for a few nights. I regret not doing this. Visit the old town which is nice and ifrane which feels like a different country altogether. My main word of warning is please do not trust company tour guides. They are very pushy. We were badly riped off by a pushy driver. Always shop around. We could have gone to casabalana for £20 each but rather paid £300 for 3 ĥeople. So disappointing there are ppl out there like that. If they say we’ll fix a price later do not trust them. Network system is adequate. If u are travelling to fez, casablana or marakkesh take the fast train, its cheap. And please do not let anyone pressure you into taking their travel service. We regret it so much.

Thank you so much for this series of articles on Morocco. I’m in the midst of planning a trip there and this series is very helpful.

To everyone (students) here complaining about the supposed lack of information – obviously you have no idea how the Internet works. Click on the underlined words and you will find a treasure trove of information. Think twice before you post nasty stuff to strangers and make yourselves look like fools.

thanks for the great info
as i am willing to visit morocco in june i was wondering whether you will be able to tell me about the best hotels and transportation to those 10 cities… and wether one week would be enough to visit the cities without the assisstance of a cmpany tour guide
or is it better to just rent a car and get a road map
regards,
Nash
