About Morocco

Morocco is a gateway to Africa and a country of dizzying diversity. Here you'll find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality.
Morocco is a storied country, that has, over the centuries, woven its ties to sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and the wider Middle East into whole cloth. Its mixed Arab and Berber population forms a strong national identity, but an increasingly youthful one, taking the best of its traditions and weaving the pattern anew – from the countryside to the city, from the call to prayer from the mosque to the beat of local hip hop. Morocco has a hundred faces and sounds, all ready to welcome the traveler looking for spice and adventure.

Why I Love This Spot!

  • Traveling to places that are vastly different from my world is what intrigues me the most, and Morocco is it…diverse in every possible way.

    The food, the people, the clothing, the smells, the landscapes—nothing is familiar and that is strangely what I love most about Morocco. You need only to visit the medina to understand this, then go to the local hammam to experience the public bathhouse, and throughout the day hear the call to prayer. You will love it too.
