Morocco! Where do I even start? First of all JUST GO! Secondly I have received a lot of inquiries from people about Morocco and what to see or do. That is such a huge questions and for starters let me explain why…
Morocco is actually really big so if you are going for 1 week I strongly suggest picking one major city and then plan a day trip somewhere maybe 2 if you are really into exploring at a fast pace.
I actually chose to go with an Intrepid tour for the initial part of it because I felt overwhelmed. I had been doing research for years!
There are pros and cons to that for sure. The pros were that as a woman I didn’t feel like I was in any danger. Now I grew up in the middle east so I had an idea of what to expect to some extent but I wasn’t sure. After about 24 hours of being there I felt comfortable and felt no problem going off on my own and exploring, even as a woman.
The cons which could also be a pro is that I felt like I got the tiniest snipet from each location, I don’t feel like I had enough time in each place but we covered A LOT of ground.
SO that being said, if you are going to Morocco look at your time and manage it well. That's what it really comes down to.
If you are going for a month, then go everywhere. You should have time to travel all through the north and then down into the south.
If you are only going for a week I recommend you choose the North or the South.
Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, and Tangier are in the north as well as Chefchuaoun, the Blue City and Moulay Idriss.
In the south you have Marrakech, Agadir, the Sahara, the High Atlas mountains (Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa) and Essaouira which is an amazing little beach town with some amazing surf I am told.
Now I feel like I may have just created more questions in your mind so feel free to leave your questions below I will do my best to answer them or even maybe create an entire post dedicated to them :)
