Welcome to Morocco Tourist Guide

Travel advice, tips, history, geography, economy, city information and tourism for Morocco

The Kingdom of a Thousand Kingdoms. The spirit of Morocco finds full expression in art. A country of artisans, even everyday objects are rendered with extraordinary craftsmanship. Markets are full of brass wares, leather goods, exquisite carpets and embroidery work of fine quality and beauty.
On a larger scale, this national artistic inclination is expressed in buildings, gardens and fountains. Owing to the various tribal, dynastic, and colonial influences, in Moroccan architecture one finds seemingly opposing expressions of rapture, ostentation and formidable might. As in the country, the result is a distinct and cohesive character, greater than the sum of its many influences. Arabesque tracery, geometric design, stylized vegetation and multicolored mosaic may cover entire structures or contribute just a hint of detail in otherwise featureless stone.

       

The face of Morocco is a shifting tableau. The landscape itself varies dramatically throughout the country. Broad peaceful beaches give way to lively gem like cities perched around and among rolling green hills and ragged peaks which then descend into the heaving expanse of the Sahara Desert. Historically, such variation fostered strong tribal affiliations over national unity.

Additionally, its geographic situation at a cultural crossroads has for centuries left Morocco vulnerable to external cultural imposition. The legacy of such varied influence from within and without is the extremely rich and surprisingly harmonious tapestry of modern Morocco. While the soul of Morocco is reveled in art, its body is reflected in the souks. All the colors, sounds and smells of the country are mingled here. The souk of Fez has been declared one of the world’s cultural treasures by UNESCO. 
Morocco is a very safe country with an ancient tradition of hospitality so travelers feel secure and very welcome. The physical beauty and cultural brilliance together with an extensive tourist infrastructure of exquisite modern hotels, and resorts; world class golf courses and excellent guides makes Morocco one of the most exciting and fulfilling travel destinations in the world.
