If you have never been to Morocco, then you should consider going booking a flight and getting accommodation shortly. However, you will want to know what some of the things you can do when there. With that said, below are five great things you can do when you arrive in Morocco.
1. Check Out The Imperial Cities
Morocco has had some capitals throughout the many years of its existence, and this includes Rabat, Marrakesh, Meknes, and Fez. All of these cities are home to mosques, museums, churches, and palaces, which allow you to go back in time and have a glimpse at the history of the country. However, the crowds in these cities can be massive, and it can be difficult to see everything in just a single day, which is why it’s a good idea to use a tour guide. Also, don’t forget to check out the many street vendors you’ll come across in those cities.
2. Take Part In Desert Activities
When you arrive in Morocco, one of the things you must do is visit the desert and take part in some of the activities. One of the most fun things you can do is take a 4X4 tour of the desert, or you can take a camel ride/camel tour. You will love checking out the various desert villages you come across, and you can even camp in the desert, which will create an experience you won’t soon forget. You will love falling asleep beneath the starry skies and then wake up to a fantastic desert sunrise.
3. Go Trekking
Another thing you can do is go trekking, and there are many places you can do it at. Some of the best places to go trekking include the High Atlas Mountains, the Rif Mountains, and the Anti-Atlas Mountains. Keep in mind that there are so many different areas you can trek in those mountains. Also, the High Atlas mountains are visited by many people every single year, so if you’re looking for an area to trek that isn’t as busy, then consider going to the Middle and the Anti-Atlas mountains.
4. The Beaches
Maybe you’re a fan of the water and love sunbathing and swimming. If you are, there’s no shortage of beaches in the country, and there are beaches on both coasts. If you want to spend time on rocky shores, then go to the Mediterranean coast, but the water can be rough there. If you ‘re going to do a lot of swimming, then the Atlantic side is the best place to go.
5. Indulge In Shopping And Food
