Morocco Travel Information
The Morocco Travel Blog by EgyptToursPlus
With Morocco being such a diverse country, it would be impossible to cover every as aspect of the country in this short Morocco travel blog, so instead, let us just take a look at a few of the things that make Morocco such a great destination to visit, and also a few things which you might want to consider if you are planning a trip to the country.
Visiting Morocco is Easy
For the citizens of most countries, visiting Morocco couldn’t be any easier than it is in terms of visa requirements and etc. Most nationalities can simply purchase an air ticket and go, and then get a Visa-on-Arrival on when they arrive in the country.
Of course, not all nationalities are eligible for this sort of visa, so it is always best to check if you qualify for a visa on arrival before you make any booking.
Morocco is Affordable
As any good Morocco blog will tell you, Morocco is a very affordable destination to visit, but as is to be expected, a great deal depends on you. If you insist on wining and dining at expensive restaurants, and going shopping in modern shopping malls, then obviously you are going to end up spending a lot more than you have to.
On the other hand, if you are traveling on a shoestring budget, then you find that Morocco can be a fantastic place to visit. For example, at the time of this Morocco travel blog being written, you could find hostel accommodation for as little as 5 Euros per night, and that includes some food as well, hence the reason why Morocco is so popular both amongst backpackers and high-end tourists alike.
A Great Choice for Multi-Destination Tours
What you often won’t see in a Morocco travel blog, is any mention about Morocco being an excellent candidate for people who want to enjoy a multi-destination vacation.
Because of its location, visitors can easily visit Spain as well, and they can do so simply by taking a ferry over the Strait of Gibraltar. Naturally, if you are going to be traveling through Spain, then you can just as easily add Morocco to your tour itinerary.
In fact, our own Spain and Morocco tour packages are very popular, as are our range of Egypt and Morocco tours.
The Five Imperial Cities of Morocco
You can read about Morocco’s 5 Imperial cities on just about any Morocco travel blog, so we aren’t going to go into a great amount of detail here. The truth is, each one of these cities have their own unique charm and their own unique history, so while some travelers might consider Casablanca to be the top city, others may feel the same way about Fez, Meknes, Rabat, or Marrakech.
Not every person who visits Morocco will agree, but Marrakech would probably win the vote if visitors were asked to name their favorite imperial city. There is just something special about Marrakech; a sort of charm which most visitors find irresistible. Of course, the city’s main square, Jamaa el Fna, is in itself more than enough reason to fall in love with Marrakech, but besides the square, there are also many other wonderful Marrakech tourist attractions waiting to be explored.
If you are planning a trip to Morocco, then you should ideally look for Morocco tour packages which include visiting all 5 Imperial cities, and you most definitely don’t want to miss out on an opportunity to visit and explore Marrakech and Fez because there are so many nice Fez tourist attractions that are also well worth a visit.
The Timelessness of Morocco
Something which also needs to be mentioned on our Morocco travel blog is the unique timelessness of Morocco. This is not to say the country has not moved forward, but Moroccans have held on to their traditions to a far greater extent than many other cultures have. So many things are done in Morocco today in the same way they were done centuries ago.
A visit to the tanneries in Fez will immediately confirm this. The tanners use the exact same techniques and materials, including things like dyes, as their forefathers did, and their forefathers before them. In fact, no visit to Fez is complete without a visit to the tanners, even if the smell is a bit off-putting. You will also witness this type of ongoing tradition if you visit areas where ironmongers are at work, or even carpenters.
Enjoying the Scenic Side of Morocco
It is not uncommon to come across a Morocco travel blog that is almost entirely about Morocco tourist attractions, but what many of them don’t really discuss, is the vast natural beauty of Morocco. Like so many other places in the world, if you really want to experience the real charm and delight of Morocco and the Moroccan people, then you need to head out into the country, away from the hustle and bustle of the cities.
A desert adventure, or even a drive through the High Atlas Mountains, can be such an incredibly rewarding experience. Not only is the scenery absolutely breathtaking, but heading through the mountains will see you passing by tiny villages which seem to have defied time; villages where the locals welcome you with open arms.
