Booking a Holiday, Tour or Vacation in Morocco

By: Stuart Cheese

In my capacity as the UK Director of Operations for One World Tours Limited, I am often asked about the destinations I have been to. I try to give a good opinion on those places and offer some helpful advice. Here then, are my top suggestions for sites to take in during your holiday in Morocco.
Morocco is located at the northwest of Africa and is bordered in the north by the strait of Gibraltar and the Mediterranean sea. The weather in Morocco is mainly of a is Mediterranean nature. The Atlantic ocean keeps the west and the north of the country more temperate.
The weather varies greatly the further into the country that you travel for example the Atlas area of Morocco is very humid, whilst in the south it is more of a desert feel.
With its vibrant bazaars, ancient capitals such as FÃ?s and Marrakech and fantastic mountain scenery, Morocco is a wonderful destination.
The country also offers the broadest plains some which run along the Atlantic ocean and the highest mountains in North Africa including the Atlas mountains.
Starting with the symbol of Morocco, Marrakech is a beautiful city that has remained unspoiled by the volume of tourists that flock there each year.

One of the finest monuments in Morocco is greatly benefited by this amount of tourism.
Actually their high volume contributes in a positive way to preserve one of the greatest monuments of Morocco.
Marrakech is a wonderful place with its colourful markets and town square of JamaÃ? El Fna. It also has a gem of a garden known as the Menara Gardens a romantic place away from the hustle and bustle.
Fes is the third largest city in Morocco and is the capital of the Fes-Boulemane Region. It is separated into three parts, Fes el Bali more commonly known as the old walled city, now classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fes-Jdid and the Ville Nouvelle. Fes el Bali is believed to be the largest car-free urban area in the world. Fez is a splendid place to visit to heighten the senses with the colours, smells and sounds.
Casablanca is an enormous city which is essentially the capital of Morocco and a place where any European would feel at home. Casablanca was made famous by the movie and gives the impression of being a romantic place. Unfortunately like many other popular cities around the world, it is crowded noisy and polluted a far cry from the romantic ideal of the film. Because it has the biggest port, Casablanca being the economic capital of Morocco, has everything that the tourist needs.
Asilah is a City in which is situated on the Atlantic Ocean and has one of the most stunning old cities of Morocco. The city is set along the cliffs which makes it beautifully presented and an ideal place to continue adding to its economy by the fishermen. The economy is also reliant on the trading of cattle, sheep and cereal. If you are having a holiday in Morocco during August then you will be fortunate enough to experience one of Asilahs' cultural festivals where you can enjoy the lively music and wonderful paintings.
The Atlas Mountains fill most of the north west corner of Africa which are divided into 5 regions some of which encompass Morocco including the Middle Atlas, High Atlas and Anti Atlas.
The Sahara desert well what can I say get on a camel and experience it for your self!
