Situated on the most northwest tip of Africa, Morocco
is a tantalising country steeped in mystique and culture.
It offers extraordinarily diverse cultures and activities,
from beautiful trekking in the stunning High Atlas
mountains and witnessing real mountain life with
the friendly Berbers tribes, to desert camel trekking,
or head off to the mediterranean style coastal towns
of Essouria and Asilah for a relaxing
retreat and a spot of windsurfing.
For culture, architecture and history you cant
beat Marrakech and Fez. Open air markets
are piled high with stalls selling brightly coloured
spices and irresistible local crafts. Its easy
to spend a few days just wandering around and taking
in the sights, smells and atmosphere, and to spend
just as long again haggling for that must have souvenir!
