Morocco

Things to do in Morocco :

  • Take a desert safari complete with a camel train, chicken tanjine and melon dinner and sleeping outside under the stars.
  • Go to Fez and visit the leather dying vats, the carpet shops and the incredible medina that completely seduces all of your senses.
  • Travel to Chefchaouen and experience all artsy, laid back blue-ness the mountain city has to offer.

Hotels in Morocco :

  • Riads are historic homes in Morocco that have been renovated into a sort of boutique hotel with a large courtyard surrounded by rooms.

Food in Morocco :

  • Mint tea is the drink of choice in Morocco – with its own accompanying ritual and copious amount of sugar!
