10 Best Places to Visit in Morocco – Travel Video

Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman may have
given the world Casablanca, but there is much more to see in Morocco than its largest city. This Atlantic coast country gives travelers
the opportunity to experience life in an ancient Arabic culture, sunning on beaches or snow
skiing in the mountains. Whether rambling through ancient medinas,
sampling cuisine at a local souq or relaxing in the sun at a white-washed seaside town,
the past is always present in this diverse and colorful country. Here’s a look at the best places to visit
in Morocco: Number 10. Legzira Beach Located south of Agadir, Legzira Beach is
considered Morocco’s most unique beach due to the gigantic sea arches that dot the beach. They are so big that a person standing underneath
one at low tide will seem like a small doll. The arches glow red at sunset, making a very
picturesque scene. The beach is popular with hang gliders and
parasailers, but it’s also a good place to sit and enjoy the spectacular sea arches. Number 9. Casablanca Everyone knows the city of Casablanca as the
colonial setting of the 1942 romantic film, but the city of today doesn’t quite reflect
that dreamy, enchanting feeling. Instead, modern-day Casablanca is a trading
powerhouse. The importance of the port city means it is
Morocco’s economic hub. You can still take a walk around Casablanca’s
curious old downtown to discover its past. Ornate Moorish architecture is infused with
European shapes and styles. If you really want to hark back to black-and-white
films, have drinks at Rick’s Cafe – the famous bar from the film. It’s a reconstruction, but we can all pretend
right? Number 8. Meknes Meknes is one of the four Imperial cities
of Morocco and its name and fame are closely linked to that of Sultan Moulay Ismail. The sultan turned Meknes into an impressive
city in Spanish-Moorish style, surrounded by high walls with great gates. While Meknes is an imperial city with a lot
of historical monuments and natural sites it is also the nearest city to the Roman ruins
of Volubilis. Number 7. Chefchaouen Chefchaouen might just as well be called the
blue city because it’s filled with – what else? – buildings in various shades of blue. Located in northwest Morocco, Chefchaouen
is close to Tangier, making it a popular tourist destination. Surrounded by breathtaking mountains, the
city’s narrow labyrinth of lanes hide plazas and ancient kasbahs, with plenty of photo
opportunities around every corner. It’s popular with shoppers who can find
Moroccan handicrafts, such as woven blankets, not found elsewhere in the country. Number 6. Asilah Now a popular seaside resort town, Asilah
has a glorious history that dates back to when it was a trade center for the Phoenicians
in 1500 BC. In the 19th and 20th centuries, pirates used
it as a base of operations. Fortifications from these bygone eras remain,
surrounding the restored medina. Whitewashed buildings complete the picturesque
scene. It has a good selection of budget hotels and
restaurants, and a growing art scene. About 1.5 miles south of Asilah lies Paradise
beach, a wonderful wide stretch of sand, popular with locals and tourists. Number 5. Essaouira Essaouira boasts pretty, sandy beaches, but
the strong winds make sunbathing out of the question. Water-sports fans know the benefit of the
wind, however, and meet up on Essaouira’s beaches in the summer months to practice their
windsurfing skills. The harbor and old city walls add a depth
to the city’s history and, with its small lanes and interesting streets, make for the
perfect place to get lost and discover new and interesting secrets hidden among the walls. Number 4. Fes. Once the capital of Morocco, Fes exudes culture
and history. It’s emblematic medina is a huge pedestrianized
sprawl that oozes ambience and history. It can seem completely overwhelming to many
visitors, whilst others fall in love with the ebullient atmosphere. Those who are brave enough to wander down
the narrow alleys can discover the city’s two Islamic schools. Dating back to the 14 Century, both madrasa
have intricate faces carved from cedar as well as elaborate tiles. The 11th Century Chouara Tannery is one of
the oldest in the world and has been making leathers for traders for many generations
– make sure to look out for it in the bustling marketplace. Number 3. High Atlas The High Atlas is a mountain range that runs
from the coast of Morocco towards Algeria. The tallest mountain range in North Africa,
the High Atlas offers outdoor recreation opportunities year round, from snow sports in the winter
to hiking in the summer. One of the best place to visit is the Todra
Gorge in the eastern part of the High Atlas. Both the Todra and neighboring Dades rivers
have carved out steep cliff-sided canyons through the mountains. On the edge of the High Atlas Mountains is
Aït-Benhaddou, a traditional Mud Brick city that has appeared in many movies including
Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator. Number 2. Merzouga. Merzouga is a small village in southeastern
Morocco not too far from the border with Algeria. It’s on the tourist route because of its
proximity to Erg Chebbi, sand dunes created by winds that reach up to 500 feet high. Travelers looking for a unique experience
might want to take an overnight camel ride through the wavy, deep reddish-orange dunes. Most group tours end up at a pre-setup camp
at the base of some very large dunes, where the various tour operators have their Berber
tents set up. Dinner will be cooked here, perhaps some music
played, and visitors can frolic on the sand dunes under zillions of stars. Number 1. Marrakech Formerly one of the country’s imperial cities,
Marrakech is sometimes referred to as the Red City because of its sandstone buildings. During the 1960s, Marrakech was known as a
“hippie mecca,” attracting famous celebrities such as The Beatles, Yves Saint Laurent and
the Rolling Stones. Comprised of beautiful old architecture and
courtyards of orange, palm, apricot and olive trees, Marrakech today is still one of Africa’s
most popular tourist destinations. The best way to sample its charms is to take
off walking through the medina: watch a snake charmer, haggle over an old carpet, eat local
delicacies such as sheep’s head or have a massage in a public bath. Other possibilities include strolling through
the Jardin Majorelle, a botanical garden that blends art deco and Moorish features, and
sipping mint tea at a traditional tea house.

    @9.59 & 10, at least pronounce JARDIN MAJORELLE correctly, it was the former studio home of designer Yves ST Laurent, image shown is not JARDIN MAJORELLE. Please research properly.

    There many other great places north of Agadir with the best surfing beaches in Morocco

  16. Yes, the people are the true jewels of the country. What struck me most is their openness to discuss their history and share food (my friends and I were adopted by a family when we got there which was truly the highlight of the trip). Note: If they toss you the monkey and you catch it you have to pay for the photo:)

  18. It is so nice to see videos like this. My wife visited Morocco many times and has some pictures but couldn't remember where a lot of things were. This is helping is fill in the pieces. Thank you!

  19. Hi! Great video and i wanted to say thank you for efforts to show Morocco to the rest of the world.
    Also if i may add without hurting any feelings, as a native, most of these places are truly amazing and offer a unique experience and memories even for locals. As said, Morocco has variety of landscapes, architecture, culture and stories to be told due to the country history. But if we are talking to the 10 best places to visit, then some (maybe one or two) of suggestions made in this video wouldnt appear in the top 10 if you ask any moroccan who would advice you to try seeking authentic small places like Chefchaouen rather than big modern cities as Casablanca. Yet it all depends on your interets and hobbies, and the best at the end is that you form your own opinion!

  23. I've been to Chefchaoun, Marrakesh, Todra and Dades Gorge, Merzouga, Casablanca, Fes, Atlas Mountains plus Agadir and Tangiers. The 3 day Sahara trip from Marrakesh covers Atlas Mountain at Tizi Tichka, sites in Ouarazatze and Ait Ben Haddou heritage site, then onto Todra and Dades Gorges, then onto Merzouga where you take the camel ride onto Erg Chebbi sand dunes to the berber tents. The waterfall in the video is the Ouzoud Waterfalls which is worth seeing
