Morocco is a country that is very colourful and the people exude warmth. The country is truly blessed by nature, it has the wonderful Atlas Mountains, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and it is also the gateway to the Sahara Desert. The mountains, the seas and the desert can all be experienced in one country; hence Morocco vacations should be on top of your destination list. There are many places to visit in the country and the best tourist spots to visit are listed below:

Asilah

If you like the sea then you will love this town by the seaside on your Morocco vacations. Asilah was part of the trade route from the 16th century and hence you can see the different cultures that have been imbibed by the town. The Phoenician, the Portuguese and Moroccan culture can be seen in this town. A fort built by the Portuguese in the hills is one of the major attractions here. The white and blue houses in the town are very scenic too.

Chefchaouen:

Chefchaouen is in the famous Rif mountains in Northern Morocco. The city is famous for its unique blue buildings and red roofs. It has become very famous on Instagram and other social media websites. If you love architecture you will be thrilled to see the Andalusian architecture on display here. It is one of Morocco's unique destinations and a must visit for all tourists.

Erg Chebbi:

Erg Chebbi is the place to go to if you want to go into the Sahara desert on your Morocco tours. It is the gateway to the Sahara and many desert safaris start from here. You can go on a camel ride and marvel at the sand dunes or take part in adventure sports in the sand. Stay at night in the desert in a Berber camp and watch the stars, it is an experience you will never forget.

Marrakech:

Marrakech or Marrakesh as it is called is at the bottom of the Atlas Mountains. The city has many maze like streets and the many souks in the city is a major attraction for tourists. If you want to visit a colourful place on your Morocco vacations then Marrakech is the place to head to. The smell of spices, the tanneries etc., are really extraordinary. Try the traditional food of Moroccans while in the city and do not forget to buy artefacts and memorabilia here.

Jebel Toubkal:

The tallest peak in North Africa and the second tallest peak in Africa, Jebel Toubkal in the High Atlas is a place that every tourist must visit. You can trek to the peak from Imlil and get back in one day but to take the breathtaking scenery and to wander in the picturesque mountains you need at least a couple of days and if you find breathing difficult in high altitude you should stay in Imlil for a couple of days to get acclimatised to the condition and then attempt the climb. If you like skiing you can visit Ouikaimeden which is nearby.

Ifrane:

You will be surprised to see city that looks like a village in the Swiss mountains in Morocco and this city is Ifrane. Ifrane was built by the French colonisers who needed a place to head to to beat the heat. The city is situated in the Atlas Mountains and the city sees a lot of snowfall in the winter months. The city does not just have Swiss type chalets it also has a lot parks and the greenery is really pleasing to the eye.

The Dades Valley:

The Dades Valley near the High Atlas Mountains is the place to head to if you like scenic beauty. You can photograph the spectacular colours of the cliffs as they change colour throughout the day from ocher to deep red. There are many Berber villages in the valley and you can go and meet the people in the villages and learn about their culture and history. People love tourists and are willing to go out of their way to help. The Todra gorge is another place in the valley which you should not miss. You can also find a lot of forts along the way and the best part is you can stay in these kasbahs as most of them have been converted into luxury hotels.

Tangier:

If you are traveling by sea then Tangier is considered as the gateway to Africa from Europe. Though the city has lost its old world charm it still boasts of wonderful places such as the Villa Nouvelle and the many medinas and kasbahs. You can also view Spain from the harbour. For those who want to spend time in the beaches, there are many in Tangier.

Book a tour to Morocco using tour operators like Memphis Tours who have been in the business since 1965. You get high quality service with customised tour packages.
