Morocco's dazzling mosaic of Arab and Berber cultures—with a dash of African and European influence—is at once strange and romantic, alluring and disconcerting. It's little wonder that Morocco has regularly drawn seekers of the exotic.
The country is one of Africa's most popular travel destinations. No matter how well-seasoned a traveler you are, you'll find plenty to see and do: fine Atlantic and Mediterranean beaches, desert excursions, wondrous imperial cities, Islamic landmarks, Joujoukan and Gnaoua trance music, Roman antiquities, resort facilities, mountain villages, oases and towering sand dunes.
The tourism industry is expanding at a fast pace in the country, with airport expansions at Casablanca and Marrakech; luxury hotels popping up in major cities; golf courses becoming a big draw; and low-cost flights drawing a wider range of travelers from across Europe.
Just be aware that the combination of heat, dust, spicy flavors and intrusive touts can be overwhelming at times. However, this can be avoided by picking the right destination and time of year to travel.
