Discover the Ancient World of Morocco

The Streets of Morocco

While making plans for your next travel destination, choose a place that is off of the regularly beaten path. Choose to live an adventure and see a place many don’t often explore. Morocco is quickly becoming one of the most trend-worthy travel destinations for world vagabonds today. From its Middle Eastern culture to its Saharan oases, Morocco is a place worth discovering.

Don a scarf and an exploratory mindset, because the cultural experience in this North African country will be one to remember. The traditional life of the people of Morocco ranges from Berbers, Arabs, and Saharawis. Many continue the age-old nomadic lifestyle and still cling to ancient traditions while incorporating modern conveniences into their everyday lives. While transporting yourself into this slow-paced lifestyle fit for days long-passed, you might find yourself envying the simple life of a carpet-maker or spice-trader.

Saharan Camels in Morocco

Other than observing the lives of the locals, there are numerous activities for eager travelers who wish to make the most of their trip. Plan a trip to hike through the high Atlas Mountains and tour parts of the Sahara while riding a desert camel. Travelers shouldn’t leave without touring some of the country’s ancient medinas. These exotic and ancient parts of the city are an oasis of culture and history. Some of Morocco’s most famous medinas are located in Fez, Marrakech and Casablanca.

Casablanca, widely recognized from the 1942 film starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, is a city on the Mediterranean containing an ancient medina and the third largest contemporary mosque in the world. It may be necessary to spend a few days discovering Marrakech. This city contains the mix of ancient and modern, with easy access to the mountains and Sahara and contains souks and ruins throughout the medina. No Marrakech traveler can miss out on the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place. If history is what you want, Fez (the former capital of Morocco) is one of the oldest and largest medieval cities in the world containing a 14th-century college, Islamic architecture, mosques, and the maze-like medina.
