Just as it does in fashion, trends in the travel industry are ever changing. Right now, travel destination hot spot Morocco, is taking over. Morocco has a rich cultural history as an Arab country at the top of Africa, just across the Straight of Gibraltar from Spain. Here we have highlighted three of our favorite destinations in Morocco that are certainly on our bucket lists.
Marrackech is about a 3 hour car ride from the country’s capital, Rabat. The city exudes luxury through its detailed tile work which Morocco is famous for. Situated on the coast, the city has become one of the most popular travel destinations in the country because of its beauty and affordability. Stunning, detailed tile pools are found at nearly every resort, as well as fine dining and lots of room for adventures.
Scarbeo Desert Hotel, Morocco
Scarbeo Desert Hotel is not for the ordinary traveler. The hotel is situated in the middle of the desert, the rooms and dining area are tents and canopies that offer protection from the hot, Moroccan sun. Despite being in the middle of the desert and in tents, you definitely are not roughing it by any means. Meals are prepared by friendly staff, and camels are there for local rides through the dunes that seem to span to the edge of the Earth; the nights are cooler and the sky is filled with thousands of stars with the lack of city lights.
Chefchaouen (pronounced chef-sh-ow-en) is known as Morocco’s Blue City. Located 4 hours north of the capital Rabat, it is fairly close to the Straight of Gilbraltar. This means that the city is a relatively quick trip from southern Spain, if traveling there. The city is painted blue to act as its own “air conditioner” cooling the city in its sweltering summer months. However helpful this is, it is also beautiful. The city is covered from head to toe in blue paint and tiles, creating a simply stunning landscape.
