Holidays to Morocco


The Kingdom of Morocco sits in the north-west corner of Africa. It draws tourists for its quality of crafts, its desirable climate and exotic nature. As of late, many visitors have discovered the Rif and High Atlas Mountains in the central and northern parts of Morocco where many enjoy skiing during their holidays in Morocco.

The southern part of the country is appealing for visitors who wish to explore the vast sands of the Western Sahara on horseback, camelback or a more modern 4x4 vehicle. Holidays in Morocco will also take visitors to timeless Medieval cities such as Marrakech and Fez, where you will find yourself absorbed into this foreign land through the local souks.

Morocco holidays will also most likely include snake charmers weaving their magic, the call of the muezzins from ancient minarets and the smell of local animal tanners all mixed with the scent of sweetened mint tea. Holidays to Morocco are guaranteed to be a unique experience. The land is rich in beauty and history and is alive with many things to do and places to visit.

Its turbulent history with the Vandals, Romans, Greeks, Visigoths and eventually Arabs has left it with many ancient monuments and spectacular buildings for modern travellers to explore today. This rich past now makes Morocco a magical land of attraction that thousands of visitors come to enjoy each year.

Holidays in Morocco will have travellers busy participating in the local activities. History seekers are overloaded with ancient tales, shoppers feel they have gone to heaven, sun worshippers enjoy the ultimate glory and everyone else can enjoy the music and art attractions for those seeking a quieter visit.

One of the largest attractions in Morocco is the Sahara Desert, which is an ideal opportunity to partake in a once in a lifetime camelback ride while viewing abandoned Foreign Legion outposts and castle ruins. Another popular Moroccan experience is a visit to the sand dunes of Merzouga and to take a camping trip on camel caravans.

Weather

Holidays in Morocco need not be planned around the best time of year to visit as there simply is not a bad time to experience this exciting country. July and August are the hottest months, with spring coming a little later than in Europe, from April to May. Similar to many countries in this region, however, Morocco does tend to experience the occasional sandstorm, which is more common in the month of April.

Currency

The official currency of Morocco is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD), which is made up of 100 centimes. Dirham notes range from denominations of DH10 to DH200. Money can be exchanged at local banks and official exchange bureaus. The Moroccan Dirham cannot be obtained outside the country and cannot be taken out of Morocco.
