If you’re planning a trip to Morocco, irrespective of where you’re based in the UK, you’ll need to book flights to one of the country’s major cities. Flights to Morocco have an average flight time of 3 hours 30 minutes.
As the impressive capital city, Rabat is a must-visit destination which has recently been elected a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also worth a visit is Taroudent, a majestic historical and fortified city situated east of Agadir adorned by beautiful constructions and spectacular craftsmanship. Agadir is perfect for a relaxed holiday, soaking up the sun and enjoying local cuisine.
Visit Souk El Had in Agadir, which is open every day except Monday. It’s a different world: huge halls with fruits and vegetables, flowers, exotic spices and therapeutic herbs.
Keen walkers will enjoy a trip to the Moroccan Mountains, where exploring the jutting peaks of the Rif Mountain Range is a breathtaking experience. Those wishing to taste a little of the local culture should spend an evening wandering to and from the many souks and bazaars to discover trinkets and treasures, traditional attire, colourful spices and plenty of souvenirs.
A trip to one of the many roof cafes is highly recommended as it’s from here you’re granted astounding views. Mint tea is popular in this part of the world and prior to leaving, sipping on a glass or two of the sweet tasting drink is a must. You may even catch some Moroccan music.
Moroccan cuisine boasts a mishmash of taste-tantalising dishes including numerous tagines which are served in large clay pots. From seafront cafes to food stalls, you’re guaranteed to find a dish to suit your tastes. The area also boasts a number of seafood options which are caught and cooked locally. The locals spend their time in the shisha cafés, where they smoke the flavour infused tobaccos with peach, apples, grape and strawberry to name just a few. It's often a popular place to visit, have a mint tea and take in the surroundings. The Middle Eastern experience will allow you to sit back, relax and watch the world go by.
